Support Your Local Yarn & Craft Stores

Due the COVID-19 pandemic, our beloved yarn, fabric and craft stores are being forced to shut their doors, threatening the survival of these small businesses. You can help, though. Through a simple, online purchase your dollars can provide a piece the revenue your local shop needs to stay afloat long enough to open their doors once we’re passed this crisis.

This post is a living list of shops that offer online shopping. Please give them a look and support what you can. 

Be well, Community!

    Would it be possible for you to include some wonderful LYSs in your list? Please consider Fuzzy Goat in Thomasville, Georgia, which is my local LYS; Knitting Off Broadway, Ft. Wayne, Indiana; and Simply Socks, Ft. Wayne, Indiana. I visit the last two whenever I’ve been in Ft. Wayne, where my husband’s from. All have thriving online presences, and all the owners are terrific and happy to help customers in any way they can. Thank you!
