Gift cards are different for Makers.

Gift cards are different for Makers. Yarn Folk

Knitters and crocheters know: gift cards are NOT impersonal gifts.

Gift cards for makers aren't just a cash transaction. They are permission to dream. They are all of the excitement that comes with planning a new project. They are the chance to splurge a little more than you might otherwise. They are cashmere, or a sweater with a lots of different colors, or a contribution toward a needle or hook set that is much cooler than most people realize. It's an afternoon of comparing colors to find the one that's been floating through your dreams. It's not a payment method--it's an experience.

Need to drop a hint, or treat a stitching friend? Here's a link to our online gift cards (which can also be used in the shop--there's just an extra step on my end). They are available in a range of values, and you can specify a delivery date for the email notification! 

    Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.

    In-store shopping: masks are optional (but welcome and appreciated).

    Lumos Lights are finally here!!!

    I'd intended to have them in stock for Girls Night Out last week, but they were unaccounted for from 11/26 until 12/4, then they hung out in Phoenix for a few days (I get it, it's warm there), and then they bounced from Federal Way to Spokane to Yakima to Ellensburg. By the end of this epic journey, I could only laugh! But they are here now, and I think you'll love these features:

    • hands-free behind the neck design
    • adjustable brightness
    • left and right sides operate independently
    • three color temperatures
    • rechargeable with included USB cable

    The Lumos Lights are perfect for when you need to illuminate your work but don't want to disturb others--while watching Netflix, in the car, or in bed. 


    If you have friends or family you'd like to coax into the fiber world, our stock of Just Add Yarn Learn to Knit or Crochet Kits just got updated. There are two knitting versions and two crochet versions--all include an instructional booklet, patterns for easy scarf and handwarmers, the needle or hook size called for in the pattern, and some removable markers and a plastic yarn needle. To complete the kit, add one, two, or three skeins of worsted weight yarn--there are suggestions in the kit description. We've priced the kits according to the included components--yarn is additional--to give you maximum flexibility when it comes to choice of fiber and color.

    Mark your calendars for a soothing January KAL featuring the glorious Gartergan, designed by Tori Yu.  With finished sizes from 40" to 72", a design that relies almost entirely on the knit stitch, simple details that elevate the design (a hi-low hem, i-cord edging, faux seams), and a 5 stitch per inch gauge that gives you LOTS of yarn choices, I hope you'll love this as a "Self-care January" project! More details to come; I'm planning to use Lore from The Fibre Co. yarnfolk dividing line (2).png stitch 


    Nothing like finding the perfect project for a yarn you've been anxiously waiting to knit with to spur on progress on your current project, huh? I'm a bit worried about Sleeve Island (do I NEED a new set of markers to get me through this??), since the sleeves are picked up from the armholes and knit down, so there's no practical way to knit them first. However, I'm pretty determined to get my Pressed Flowers Cardigan OFF the needles and ON my shoulders before January. Eighteen days: ready, set, GO!
