New Weaving Instructor...
We welcome Roz Yenzer as our new Weaving Instructor. Here's a shor bio about her...
"In the 3rd grade my teacher
brought in some table looms
and taught us how to weave.
It really made that year of
school one of my favorite
memories. Mom got a
lovely 4 heddle floor loom
and I would help her put on the warp and get to weave some too. I had dreams of creating beautiful woven materials. In my 50s I inherited my mother's loom and looked forward to weaving...only first I needed to retire from 20 years of special education teaching. First attempts at working on my own on the loom were comical disasters! I moved to TN 5 1/2 years ago and found myself among many talented weavers. I joined the Tuesday Weavers at the Appalachian Arts and Crafts Center in Norris, and my skills as a weaver began to grow. I am a very strong supporter of taking lessons and learning by doing. A rigid heddle loom I got at The Yarn Haven allows me to weave smaller items. I can now use up many of my yarn scraps and create different patterns with different textures. Weaving has brought so much creativity and joy into my life. Yes, dreams can come true!"
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.
- Monday afternoons (1-4 pm)
- Thursday evenings (6-8 pm)
