Can you believe that next month is the third anniversary of A Good Yarn? They say that time flies when you’re having fun, and we can’t believe it’s already been three years since we opened our front door. We know that this shop couldn’t be successful without great customers, so our thanks go out to you for making everything we do possible.
We’re excited to announce that as part of our third anniversary celebration, renowned knit and crochet designer Melissa Leapman will be returning to teach three workshops with us next month! Melissa joined us for our second anniversary party last year, and we’re thrilled that she’s back. A preeminent designer, Melissa has published several books and had her work featured in every major needlecrafts publication in the country. Her classes are always a blast, so sign up quickly before they’re sold out! Here’s what she has lined up for A Good Yarn in November:
