Yarn, Yarn, Yarn...

For those that are addicted to the Tanis Fiber Arts yarns...

The lovely and talented Tanis has made the decision to scale back her production schedule with the impeding and super exciting arrival of their second child. What that means for us is that we will not be receiving anymore shipments from TFA ... and so what we have in stock is all that there will be in our purl of a shop. (at least for a fairly long while). Don't panic though... The TFA team is not going away... they are just focusing their energy on their online presence... you will still be able to get their loveliness via the website and Etsy updates!

We have loved the beautiful palattes of TFA yarns for the past 7 years and while we are sad they will no longer be on our shelves, we do love all the wonderful projects we and you have made!

We wish Tanis and family ALL the very BEST of everything!


We, of course, have some exciting new plans that will be unraveling over the next couple of months! (more on those additions in the April newsletter!)



Regular Hours Interruptions...

  • Sunday, April 5, 2015 - Easter Sunday - Closed

Happy Stitching!
