It’s the first inaugural Local Yarn Shop Day on Saturday, April 21, 2018! All over the world, knitting, crochet, and other fiber-y communities are sharing the love for their favourite yarn shops! We hope you’ll join us at Stitchy Business on Friday night, and then swing by for the festivities on Saturday!


It’s time to freshen up the shop! Our front railing yarn bombing is starting to look a little worse for wear after months of winter. If you’d like to pitch in, we’re collecting knitted, crocheted, or woven rectangles! Our railing is approximately 8 inches around, so we are looking for rectangles that are are either 8 inches wide or long – the other measurement is up to you! Rectangles should be dropped off at the shop by Thursday, April 19.

Making No. 5 // Color will be available starting first thing Friday, April 20! Join us that night for Stitchy Business 6-9 PM.
