Local Yarn Store Day

April 23, 2019

Local Yarn Store Day

What is LYS Day?

Brick and Mortar Local Yarn Stores (LYS) are a vital aspect of the fiber world for many reasons. LYS Day is an opportunity for the community to appreciate the effort that goes into curating a yarn store as well as an opportunity for us (a LYS) to express our gratitude for your continued support over the past eleven years and hopefully many more into the future.

Why are local yarn stores so important?

Finding yarn is a very tactile experience as both sense of touch and sense of sight are heavily utilized in determining whether the fiber composition and color is what you are looking for or love. Experienced staff can assist in finding fiber compositions, discussing color choices, contemplating drape, fixing mistakes, and more. Brick and mortar stores offer class opportunities so you can learn new skills and techniques from experts within your own community. Speaking of community, local yarn stores are full of community whether you attend knit night or casually knit around the back table on an afternoon off. At Blazing Needles, we try to provide an elevated experience which is inclusive, fosters creativity, and inspires you to challenge yourself. 

What's going on at Blazing Needles?

We have been so grateful to help curate the amazing community of makers that you belong to. We adore seeing your projects, enthusiasm, creativity, and kindness. As a way to thank you for your support, we have LOADS of special offers going on this weekend, April 27th, 2019, in-store only. Stop by for an iced tea, knit by the table, and enjoy being surrounded by gorgeous yarn and great people.
