Our annual Miss Babs Pop Up shop has been modified a bit this year! We are taking it to the streets and will have even more yarn than ever! Shop Thursday through Sunday outside in our tents, while staying socially distanced from other shoppers.

*This event will not be online or virtual, however we will be opening up the yarns for phone orders on Monday after the event and will showcase what we keep at the shop after the show ends.

Prepare by browsing her samples ahead of time

Miss Babs will be sending her best and newest designs to our shop in advance of the trunk show! You can pick the projects that you want to shop for during the event and take down the yarn requirements.

Exclusive show color and new seasonal colors

Miss Babs will be bringing a new and exclusive show color to this pop up! You will also be the first to see her seasonal colors in person!
