Join us on Saturday, August 27th for the Ross Farms Pop Up Shop. Ross Farms is located outside Pittsburgh and features amazing wool from a variety of rare breeds of sheep.

Learn all about these unique animals from the shepherds who care for them, all while discovering some really beautiful yarns.
Jared Flood will be in space on Thursday, September 8th from 6-9pm for a book signing of his brand new book Woolens. Be sure to visit the shop or give us a call to purchase your copy ahead of time. We will also have all of the items from the collection, so you can see them for yourself as well.
The annual Miss Babs Trunk Show will be happening on September 10th and 11th this year! This trunk show will feature some brand new colors and bases as well and tried-and-true favorites. See a variety of samples and meet Babs herself. Please note the special hours on Sunday for the trunk show yarns.
We are so excited to announce a special screening of the Yarn! movie on September 15th at the AMC Hoffman in Alexandria. Tickets are $10 and the movie will only be shown if we sell 100 tickets by September 8th. We’ll have a pre-movie gathering at the shop before we all meet at the theatre for a fun night of stitching!
Stephen West is indeed coming to space in September! While both his Top-Down Shawl and Two Color Brioche Workshops on September 17th and 18th are sold out, you can always call the shop to be placed on the waitlist. We will also be having a meet-and-greet and trunk show of his fun designs on September 17th from 5-7pm that still has some open spaces.
