When I first opened Yarn Soup in October of 2011 (yes, nearly 11 years ago!), I did not know exactly what lay ahead. My primary hope was to share the love of yarn and needle arts and somehow help to improve people’s lives in the process. So much has changed since then! But these goals remain.

You have been a faithful part of this journey, sharing your own creative endeavors with me and the Yarn Soup community. That’s why LYS Day is really about the everyday fiber artists like you who keep these shops relevant and vibrant by your purchases, preferences and participation. You are the reason the LYS exists!

I hope you will stop by Saturday, April 30, and let me thank you in person for supporting our little LYS! Here is a preview of what you can look forward to:

  • Extended hours for LYS Day only! Open from 10–5;
  • Exclusive patterns FREE with the purchase of yarns from some of our favorite brands: Berroco, Blue Sky and Cascade;
  • Chances to win door prizes, including the Grand Prize: An after-hours group gathering and homemade soup meal at Yarn Soup for up to 8 people on your choice of day and time!
  • Plus, additional surprises and announcements you won’t want to miss!

There will be snacks and seating for you to relax throughout the day with your projects in hand—can’t wait to see you there!

A checklist to prepare for LYS Day:

  • Add LYS Day, Saturday, April 30, to my calendar.
  • Contact at least one yarnie friend to join me at Yarn Soup.
  • Explore Ravelry for project ideas (don’t forget to view the yarnsoupdbq Projects and Favorites!).
  • Peruse the Yarn Soup website for yarn and product ideas.
  • Pack a shopping list, outstanding gift certificates (they never expire!) and my current project.
