4. What kinds of things do you carry?
The Yarn Spot has a wide selection of yarns, from the most basic cottons and wools to hand-dyed yarns in silk and bamboo and beyond. In addition, we have the needles, tools, and notions you need for your knitting, crochet, spinning or weaving project. We are a Dragonfly Fibers flagship store, carry Susquahanna yarns, Frabjous Fibers, Mrs. Crosby and more. We are always on the look out for great new yarns--this year we are hosting Backyard Fiberworks, Kismet, and Seven Sisters Pop-Up Shops.
5. How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open a LYS?
We have been open since November of 2009. We opened the store because of our love of yarn, fiber and craft and it seemed like the right time to embark on our next great adventure!
6. What's your favorite thing about having a LYS?
Meeting wonderful people who enjoy fiber as much as we do, working with yarn ALL DAY LONG and having flexibility in my schedule. Must attend school shows and events!
