Camellia Fiber Co Restock!

We're beyond delighted to share that we have restocked two of our best selling yarns from Camellia Fiber Co!

CFCo Sylvan is an ultra-luxurious yarn that's perfect for knitting heirloom items like delicate shawls and lightweight cardigans. We used two skeins for our Parthenon ShawlWe've made several of these over the years - in various yarns - and we especially love it worked up in Sylvan. There's something just so magical about this alpaca/silk/cashmere blend flowing through your fingers. It's something!

The second yarn we've restocked is CFCO Suri Alpaca Silk Lace, a phenomenally soft and decadent yarn. This one is a dream all by itself or held with another yarn to create unique textures with a little extra warmth. Try pairing it with a skein of Sylvan in the exact same color to make the beautiful Thistle Scarf (top photo). Again, we've made several of these scarves...but our absolute favorite is the one where we held Suri Lace along with Sylvan (one skein of each) to create a little "halo" to our knitting.

LYS Day: Pop-Ups!

Local Yarn Store Day is coming up quick - Saturday, April 27.  As usual, LYS Day 2024 will be full of fun. We know we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for your love of yarn, fiber and community. Save the date for April 27th and keep an eye out for more details each week.

Jay from Gussie Bag Co will be all set up with his signature Gussie project totes. Any of you who attended the Middle TN Fiber Festival last month might have spotted his booth and gorgeous bags. Jay SOLD OUT on day one of the festival and sewed all through the night to have more on hand for day two. He's been busy as a bee replenishing his stock and we're super excited to be stocking his totes...the styles in the photograph are available NOW. See one you like? Click HERE to grab it for yourself! 

Lou and Jonathan from Old Rusted Chair will be in store and they're bringing candles, coasters, wool fabric and more! You can check out all their handmade goodies in store from 10am-2pm. This is your chance to meet Lou and chat about color combinations, your next cast on, or how cute their furry supervisors can be.

Unwanted Craft Supplies?

If your spring cleaning has unearthed a mountain of unwanted craft supplies, gather them all up and bring them to Haus on Saturday May 4th! The smArt collection van will be parked around the back of the building and will happily take any of those unwanted craft supplies!

New stuff, used stuff, doesn't matter, smArt will take it! Fabric, yarn, tubes of paint, scrapbooking supplies, sewing notions, paper, jewelry supplies, frames, floral and stained glass are items that they're looking for.

Let's put those unwanted craft supplies into hands that could use them and keep them outta the landfill!
