Project Knitalong...
On Wednesday afternoons
from 1-3 pm we have a
“Project of the Month”
knitalong.  For August
we’re going to make the
“Sundry” Shawl using 2 different colors of  Madelinetosh Sock yarn and a size 6-24” circular needle. You can add a 3rd colorway if you want to add a little striping.  Pattern is free with purchase of yarn for this project.  Looks like a fun way to combine colors!!  Come join us!!


Cardi Challenge...

Details to follow.

Yarn Dyeing Workshop...
Summer is a great time
to get outside and
learn how to dye your
own yarn or roving.  On
Saturday, August 23 from
1-3 pm we'll be
having the workshop back behind our building.  (We'll reschedule in case of rain.)  For $40 you'll get to dye a sock weight yarn or a 4 oz. ball of alpaca roving.  All supplies will be furnished and you will leave with your very own color creation.  Space is limited so sign up today!  (Please dress in clothing suitable for being outdoors and with the possibility of dye splashes.)

Market Days...
On September 2—6 we
will once again have
our Market Days. 
Market Days give you
the opportunity to sell
yarns in your stash that
you no longer want, as well as any items for knitting, crocheting, spinning or weaving.  You will receive shop credit for anything that sells.  Cost is only $5...no matter how many items you bring in.  Print out a sheet of market day tags to fill out.  Market Day Tags.  Be sure to put your initials and an item number on each tag.  Then put each item in a Ziploc bag along with the tag.  Bring in the items you wish to sell the week before the Market (August 25—30).  On Monday, September 8 you can come by and pick up any remaining items that didn’t sell as well as your store credit certificate.  Items bought during our Market Days need to be paid with cash or a check.  There are always some great buys during our Market Days, so be sure to come take a look and find that special treasure.

The Yarn Haven Van...
Many of our customers
come a long way to
visit us.  So starting
in September, The
Yarn  Haven Van will
begin going around to
different communities
in East TN bringing some of our most popular yarns to you.  We can even bring special orders!   If you’d like us to come to your  community, email us and let us know. 

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 seamstress 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. 

Need knitting/crocheting help on your project...
We are always more than happy to help customers with project problems and issues during regular store hours, but our shop girls stay pretty busy helping customers with their selection of patterns, yarns, etc.  So we now have an available knitting and crocheting help teacher.  Just bring in your project and our "Stitch Doctor" will help get you back on track.  Cost is $15/hr, but fee will be prorated based on the amount of time needed.  For involved requests such as garment construction or learning complicated stitches, you may need to have a paid private lesson or attend one of our Weekly Classes.

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.
