Yarn Haven Rewards

Come in and pick up a punch card.  Present card each time you check out.  Punches will be given in $5.00 increments for your total purchase (excluding classes).  Once all $ are punched, present card with next purchase for a $10 reward!

It's our way of saying "Thank you for shopping at The Yarn Haven."
Need knitting/crocheting help on your project...
Just call the shop and see when we'll have room in one of our Weekly classes.  It's just $10 and our teachers can help get you back on track with your project.

Need a Bag Lining?
We all love to knit or crochet bags.  But many times the bags would be nicer with a lining.  Kelora is an excellent tailor and would love to put a lining in your bags.  Just bring by your bag for her and she will contact you with  the cost of adding a lining to your creation. 

Blocking and Felting...
Many times we have heard folks say that they can't felt their project because they have a front-loading washer.  Or they know their garment should be blocked, but they are scared to do it.  Blocking will smooth out any wrinkles, stretch the garment out to the correct size, relaz the stitches so they are all more uniform and make the garment look and fit better.  We can provide these services for you.  Just bring in your projects to us for felting or blocking.  Cost is $10 per item.

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.

  • Monday afternoons (1-4 pm)
  • Thursday evenings (6-8 pm)
We have knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving, tatting & felting supplies.
We also have over 500 unique buttons.

Christmas Gift Bazaar…
On the weekend after Thanksgiving we will once again have our Christmas Gift Bazaar featuring some of our local artisans...like Linda Sullivan Ceramics, Rainwater Farms Soap, Pine Mountain Designs Woodworking, & several others.  We'll have lots of handcrafted items...all made by local folks in the area.  Be sure to put The Yarn Haven on your shopping list the weekend of November 28 & 29.  We will have extended shop hours those days from 10 am - 6 pm.  Come by and support small local businesses this holiday season!
Christmas Wish Lists…
What do you want for Christmas this year?  Come in during our Gift Bazaar and fill out your Christmas Wish List.  Then your family members can come by and shop for exactly the items you're wishing for under your tree.  Be sure to pick up a Wish List card and give to your family so they will receive 10% off any item they purchase on your Wish List.  It's a win-win situation.  If they aren't knitters or crocheters, they may have no idea of what to get you.  So help them out by filling out your very own Christmas Wish list.  We'll even have FREE GIFT WRAP when they come in.
The Yarn Haven's Annual Retreat…
Our winter retreat this year will be February 20 - 22, 2015 at Steiner Bell Lodge in Gatlinburg.   Cost will be $250 and includes 2 nights lodging, 5 home-cooked meals, door prizes, workshop,  pillow gifts, time for knitting, crocheting, weaving or spinning and LOTS of fun and laughter.  Each room has a private bath and a balcony, and will house 2 people with each having their own queen-sized bed.  For an extra $50 you can have your own private room if you'd prefer.  Come by the shop to pick up an information sheet.  If you are interested in going, sign up ASAP as spots are filling up fast.
Small Business Saturday…

Saturday, November 29 is Small Business Saturday...a day to encourage holiday shoppers to shop local by giving a $10 statement credit to people who use their American Express card to make a $25 purchase at pre-registered small brick and mortar stores that day.  The Yarn Haven has registered and if you use your American Express card to make at least a $25 purchase that day, you will get this $10 credit on your next American Express statement.  Also, the first 15 paying customers will receive a free canvas bag.  If you have an   American Express card, you must go to their website to register for Small Business Saturday.

Hats for Kids…

Our Hats for Kids charity project this month has taken on a new twist.  Many of you know that one of our shop girls, Melissa Ray, lost her son David on November 29, 2006 at the age of 5.  This year we are going to be making hats in David's memory.  David was a very giving little boy.  So it seems appropriate that since November was the month he went to heaven that we dedicate our charity project this month in his memory by giving back to kids in our community who are living at or below the poverty level.  We will be collecting hats for kids through Saturday, December 13.  In choosing yarns for this project, make sure they are machine washable.  Make sure that the hats are about 7-8" in height as many hats turned in for other charity projects have been too short to fit a kid's head.  There is a pattern on our charity project page if you don't have one.  Please join us in making hats for kids that don't have one to keep warm this winter.  I know that David will be smiling from heaven.
