Local Yarn Store Day is a program designed by The National Needlearts Association to drive traffic to local yarn stores. Yarn producers and designers partners to show their support for brick and mortar stores by creating one-of-a-kind products and programs only for participating local shops. Specialty yarns that can not be found online, as well as patterns, help the local yarn store on this day.
Pingora Yarns will have several specialty yarns that can only be found at Pingora Yarns, such as Big Sky Yarn's "Red Canyon" and Round Mountain Fibers' "Meadow Lark". There will be kits, specially made notions, and lots of patterns for free with purchase of selected yarns!
In addition to retail items, there will be demonstrations all day long of unusal fiber arts. Such as wet felting, hairpin lace, tatting, weaving, and spinning just to name a few.
