Happy April from Yarn Therapy

Save the Date! April 21st, 2018!

We are delighted to participate in the first annual Local Yarn Store Day! 
Help us help you spring clean. Get the yarn out! Help our local high schools! Bring in any skein of yarn, pair of needles, or other fiber related object that you have outgrown and get 20% off one skein of any yarn in the shop! Is that odd skein of acrylic not speaking to you any more? Did you inherit yarn that you don’t want? Think guilt free purging and make room for yarn you’ll love. It’s a win win!
Daydreaming about the Lykke Interchangeable set you saw on your last visit to Yarn Therapy? They are gorgeous aren’t they? I am totally smitten! At 20% off you can finally say yes to these beauties.
FREE STUFF! Drawings held throughout the day! Be sure to sign up!
New yarn? New classes!



Classes fill quickly and are packed with a lot of information in a structured amount of time.  You don’t want to miss anything! Please be on time and ready to begin.
