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. We have met our minimum threshold (yay!) and have just a few dozen tickets left. Tickets are $14 each and we’ll have a pre-movie gathering at the shop before we all meet at the theatre for a fun night of stitching!

While the Top-Down Shawl Workshop, meet-and-green and trunk show, both on September 17th, and his Two Color Brioche Workshop on September 18th are all sold out, you can always call the shop to be placed on the waitlist.
