Yarn Soup is a locally owned and operated yarn shop serving up a feast of fibers in Dubuque, Iowa. Sara opened the shop in 2011 to create a space where knitters and crocheters can gather to learn from and inspire one another, while enjoying a visual feast of lush, colorful fibers in a cozy, welcoming atmosphere (kind of like how a warm, inviting bowl of soup makes you feel…thus the name, Yarn Soup. Clever, huh?).
Sara’s personal journey into the creative world of fiber arts started at the age of 10 when she asked her mother to teach her how to knit. Throughout the years, she periodically experimented with knitting and funky fibers until one day, something just clicked, transforming her on-again-off-again hobby into the stress-reducing, creative outlet Sara had been craving in her life. She left a career in publishing and communications to start a business where she could share her passion for yarn and knitting, while nurturing the camaraderie so inherent in needle crafts.
At Yarn Soup, we always look forward to meeting fellow fiber arts enthusiasts of all skill levels and walks of life. We strive to provide outstanding customer service and a tantalizing array of yarns and fibers. Please join us at Yarn Soup for a journey of never-ending creative possibilities!
