There’s an actual YARN TRUCK?!? Yes! And it’s awesome!
We call it “Follow the Fiber” and it is bringing the LYS to you!
We want to bring fine fibers and the love of fiber arts to towns without their own LYS. Our “Follow the Fiber” Yarn Truck goes to festivals, farmer markets, special events, and private engagements. We love to partner with other small businesses like coffee houses, cafes, breweries and BnBs. If you own such a place give us a shout. Check back often as the list of locations will be updated regularly. Stay in touch by liking our Facebook Page.
