April 17th 11:00 - 2:00 Louisa Harding to visit The Yarn and Fiber Company

What a treat! On April 17th, from 11:00 to 2:00 Louisa Harding will be stopping by The Yarn and Fiber Company for a meet and greet. How wonderful! Bring your books for signing and any questions you may have for this wonderful designer. We have stocked up on her yarns and books and we will be serving a light lunch and refreshments! We are very, very excited! See you here!

And while you are shopping, please take a moment to browse the new Clearance category we created. As you may know about us, we are constantly bringing in more yarns and the shop is about to burst so we need to make more space. But then again, how much fun would a yarn explosion be!
