Wear On Earth

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!

Wear On Earth?

SONY DSCHave you ever been to Lynden, Washington?  Well, I hadn’t, and they have a yarn shop, so Libbie & I headed north to check it out.  I am trying to visit some of my states yarn shops that I have never been to before.SONY DSC

The name of the yarn shop is Wear On Earth.  Part of the store is a consignment clothing store complete with purses, aprons, shoes and jeans.  Don’t let that distract you at all — the store has plenty of space with tons of yarn.  The store slogan is ‘save on clothes ~ splurge on yarn’!SONY DSC

SONY DSCThe store is eclectic in a way, because you see high fashion neon’s, work horse wools, glitzy sparkling novelties, and couture Madeline Tosh.  Inventory was high and the owner was excited about the future.

 

Wear on Earth will be leaving front street for a new and bigger location.  Yep, Wear on Earth is moving to the Lynden Towne Plaza very soon, so follow them on Facebook so you can be the first to hear the big news!  Wear on Earth is also part of the LYS Tour, so definitely stop in and be surprised.SONY DSC

Lynden is a sweet and fun Dutch town!  After our trip through the yarn shop, we stopped into the Lynden Dutch Bakery.  We picked up some fresh baked rolls, a Seahawk cookie and some Oliebollen.  What’s an Oliebollen?  It’s a Dutch cake like donut hole ONLY BETTER!!!

SONY DSCSo come to Lynden for the day start with come coffee and Oliebollen, then cruise through the yarn shop and treat yourself to a new project, and then have some lunch and take in all the windmills.  Can’t wait to see the new digs Wear on Earth~
