Well, hello again! We here at America’s Knitting like to celebrate the brick and mortar business of the local yarn shop! As most of you may already know, America’s Knitting is celebrating 10 years this year. Ten years of helping knitters find local yarn shops wherever they may be in the United States. Are they traveling for business, pleasure, family obligation or possibly relocating? We pride ourselves on having not only a complete listing of shops, but an accurate listing of shops. We routinely check in on shops just to make sure they are still owned by the same people and in the same place. We also have peeps out there informing us of updates all the time.
America’s Knitting also has a Facebook page, we are on Instagram, and yes, we even have a Ravelry group. Our Ravelry group is moderated by Diana Cripe. Diana recently took a trip to Lynden, Washington. YES, there is a yarn shop in Lynden, Washington; it’s called Wear On Earth! Here is what Diana had to say about the business, and here are her photos…
Wear On Earth has the cutest little classroom setting for classes, and does a lot of great things, like a group that knits scarves for veterans. The business has a website that has a lot of information about this. It is a great place because it is also a clothing consignment shop and the motto of the shop is: Save on Clothes, Splurge on Yarn!
The owners name is Elva Fisel and she was very nice and informative. She even yarn bombed the pillar in the front of the store, outside.
Thank you Diana for thinking of America’s Knitting while you were in Lynden, Washington!
If you have a yarn shop in your town, we’d love to know more about it, and see some pictures of the store. Please feel free to take a few snaps, write a few lines and email them over to me. I will post a short story right here. Stay tuned for our new website coming in 2018!
