Some notes on Local Yarn Shop Day, plus important information!

Hello! I am feeling like I have sent more email blasts than normal this month, and I noticed a bunch of people unsubscribed.  Hoping they are not feeling overburdened by shop email - and doing a blog post instead.  This particular LYS day feels odd, probably for a few reasons - TNNA, the hosting organization, has dissolved, so it feels strange to still be offering something they promoted.  More than that, LYS day in the past has been an opportunity to offer some special celebratory things, and I don't feel like we can easily do that without gathering as a...

5th Annual Great Northern Yarn Haul - Pandemic Edition

Great Northern Yarn Haul

5th Annual Great Northern Yarn Haul - Pandemic Edition

Are you ready for the Great Northern Yarn Haul? Have you heard about the Great Northern Yarn Haul? It's a fun, self-guided tour for knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers and fiber artists of all kinds. Normally the Yarn Haul involves traveling around northern New England to visit local yarn shops in person. This year things may look a little different, but it will still be lots of fun! Here's how it works: You choose a shop where you'd like to start your Haul. (I'll humbly suggest that starting at Green Mountain Yarn & Fiber would be an excellent choice!) Pick up...

Reopening May 18

The good news is...we are reopening on Monday, May 18 at 10 am.  The details are as follows: Everyone must wear a mask while in the shop. Only a few people in the shop at one time, and everyone must observe social distance guidelines. If you have any symptoms at all, please stay home.. No sit-n-knit and no classes for the time being. It is also going to be nearly impossible to offer one on one help with projects, though I will do my best to answer questions as well as I can while maintaining the required distance. The restroom...
