Yarns by Design now has a facebook page. "Like us" and be the first to know when something new comes in! I'll also post announcements about events we're hosting or vending at, so you can plan your fiber show travels. And when the weather gets messy, I try to post any changes to shop hours on Facebook.

Rites of Spring: Fiber Frolic and Midwest Masters - April 17 - 18
One of the traditions of spring is a weekend of knitting, shopping, and learning at our Midwest Masters weekend. This year, we're combining it with a Fiber Frolic: a shop hop around Lake Winnebago. Visit fiber shops and farms, stop for refreshment at local cafes, and enjoy the spring weather! The Holiday Inn Neenah Riverwalk is still our headquarters for the weekend. For the Midwest Masters part of the weekend, Mary Germain will be teaching classes at the Holiday Inn. Class schedule and descriptions are posted now.
The Fiber Frolic includes 10 shops and 4 cafes around Lake Winnebago. There are fiber farms, as well as knitting/quilting/fiber shops. Some places have gift items, usally with a fiber connection, so your non-knitting friends will be able to find something to enjoy, too! The shops are open 10am to 5pm on April 17 and 18. More details are available in the shop, on the website, on Facebook and on Ravelry. The Holiday Inns in both Fond du Lac and Neenah are offering special room rates for the weekend, so you won't be rushed to get to all the shops.
Check Out What's New
New from Shibui is Maai - a DK wieght alpaca/merino blend in a chainette construction. It is incredibly soft and springy.
Extra! is a new alpaca/merino blend from Blue Sky Alpaca. It's wonderful to knit with and comfy to wear. Great for accessories - it only takes one skein to make a hat, fingerless mitts, or cowl. There's a beautiful wrap on display that takes two skeins. Perfect for fall knitting projects and holiday gifts.
