I ♥ LYS Day and Other Annoucements

Join Fiberworks for the inaugural Local Yarn Store Day on Saturday, April 21st!  Come and see everything a brick-and-mortar store has to offer while entering to win a major door prize and browsing our yarns, needles and equipment.  We will be celebrating our local designers and the amazing creativity found in the Dayton area, offering a sale on cotton yarns to jump-start your warm weather knitting and crochet, including the fabulous ombré Transitions yarn, and we will be freshly stocked with a brand-new shipment of Zauberball yarns which are perfect for springtime shawls and wraps.  We will also have Learn to Knit kits from Dream in Color, cowl kits from Mountain Colors, a new, exclusive, limited-edition LYS Day colorway from Koigu, and Koigu’s mini-skeinettes which have just a sampling of their colors in 10-yard bites.

We will also be at the Dayton Knitting Guild Yarn Market at the Bergamo Center in Beavercreek on Friday, April 27th from 3-7 and Saturday, April 28th from 10-6.  The yarn market is open to the public.

We will also be participating in the 6th Annual I-75 Yarn Crawl from August 7th-12. Passports will go on sale online starting on Monday, April 30th at 10 am. The first 200 people to buy passports online will get the official I-75 Yarn Crawl tote bag at half price. This year, the cost of the passport is now $6. For the first five Yarn Crawls, Fiberworks had been the most visited store on the crawl other than the crawl organizer. Let’s make that 6 for 6!

As always, we are looking forward to seeing you!
