One of our major suppliers will be discontinuing distribution of hand knitting yarns. Now this does not mean that the yarns that they handled are no longer being manufactured. It does mean that these manufacturers are going to be looking for other wholesalers in North America to handle their products.
Among the yarns affected by these changes are Rowan, Schachenmyer, Regia, Lopi,and James C Brett, the manufacturer of the ever popular Marble, and Marble Chunky lines. Now at the moment we do not know whether all of these lines will end up in the hands of one importer, or whether there will be separate importers in the United States and Canada. We do have some stock still remaining among these lines and we will quickly notify you of any shortages regarding your orders.
Rest assured that whatever happens we are very eager to keep these brands in our stores, so please be patient if there are temporary shortages of any of your favourite yarns while the new supply lines are being established.

An online source for all your yarn, knitting supplies, knitting patterns, and needlework supplies.
Bringing you quality yarns, featuring Alafoss Lopi, Berroco Yarns and Cascade Yarns.

Come join us as we make a number of touch or fidget quilts to be donated to the local convalescent homes. This is a one week drop-in event. Materials and inspiration will be provided.
