We have knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving & felting supplies.
We also have over 500 unique buttons.
For May, you can join
us in making a Maenad
Shawl. We have lots of
colors matched up for
you to choose from.
This gorgeous shawl includes a short-rowed garter stitch body with a lace edging that is knitted on. We'll be meeting on Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 pm during the month of May. Bring in your Maenad Shawl to put on display by May 31 and be eligible to win our May KAL prize of one skein of Noro Silk Garden sock yarn.
Beginning Saturday, May 4 -
11 we'll be having another
Market Day week. Bring
in your knitting,
crocheting, spinning and weaving items that you no longer want the week before (April 29 - May 3). You will receive store credit at The Yarn Haven for anything that sells. Simply place your items in individual zip-top bags and include an index card with your initials and the price for the contents of the bag. If you don't want an item back, write "donate" on the card and the item will be donated for various charity projects. The cost to participate in our Market will be $5.00...no matter how many bags you bring in. You don't have to be here for the sale...unless you want to shop. Be sure to let us know you will be participating as space is limited. Items you wish to be returned to you will be ready for pick up on Monday, May 13.
June's knitalong will find
everyone making Elizabeth
Zimmerman's Baby Surprise
Jacket. This is a cute litt
le jacket that looks like an odd-shaped garment while you are knitting it. But then with a simple folding of just the right parts you have a little jacket that will make any baby look even more adorable. These make great baby shower gifts that will have everyone charmed by your wonderful knitting skills. If you're not sure you can make this garment on your own, then come take the Baby Surprise Jacket class in May. You'll be right on track to join us in June for our KAL on Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 pm.

Knit and Crochet East TN...
Our desire is for The Yarn Haven
to be a place where we
give back to our community.
So we are beginning a new
group called "Knit and Crochet East TN". We will be knitting and crocheting for local charities right here in East TN. While folks will be working on charity projects all during the month, we will meet together the 1st Tuesday night each month and work on our projects together. The charities that we currently donate to are Project Linus (blankets), Newborns in Need (infant clothing), East TN Children's Hospital (preemie caps), Knoxville Area Rescue Mission (hats, scarves & mittens for families) & Knitted Knockers given out by various oncologists. We can add other charities as we become aware of them. Can you give 1 evening a month to work on projects for charity? Then come join us on the 1st Tuesday evening of each month.
Sit 'N Spin...
Looking for a place to spin with
other spinners? We're starting
a new group on Tuesday
afternoons from 1-4 pm. Bring your wheel or spindle and come spin with us. And if you need more incentive, then you'll love this. All participants of our Sit 'N Spin will receive 10% off any purchase of roving we have in stock on our Tuesday afternoons.
Rainy Day Sales...
We're going to start having
Rainy Day sales here at the
shop. On those days we
will discount one particular
yarn or yarns from one particular company. Be sure to check our Ravelry group and/or our Facebook page to get notice of our Rainy Day Sales. Hopefully, on rainy days our shop will be hopping with activity. Not only will you save some money on your yarn purchase, but you'll get a chance to get out of the house and have a fun time with other knitters and crocheters.
We love to socialize...
It's always great to get together with other crafters while you work on a project. Come bring your spinning wheel, your knitting needles or your crochet hook and your current project to our shop during our social times for an afternoon or evening of pure fiber enjoyment.
