Shop News

Black Friday is Coming!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and y'all know what that means, right? Shopping mayhem is on the horizon! Yarnivore will have great gift ideas for fiber crafters and those that love them, including kits for young and old alike. We'll also have cute (too cute!) stocking stuffers and learn-to-knit-or-crochet kits to make everyone's shopping easier. Watch our social media (@YarnivoreSA on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and website for more inspiration. Don't forget that we offer gift certificates for those who can't make up their mind (so much yarn, so little time!).

Trying to avoid the crush at typical stores? Need relief from your crazy-but-good family? Yarnivore will have snacks and good company if you want to hang out with other fiber crafters. Normal hours on Black Friday (11/29), Small Business Saturday (11/30) and Sunday (12/1).

The Tip Jar

Need to measure something and have no ruler? If you have a US dollar bill, you can use that! A dollar bill is about 6 inches long, so two of them make a foot, or you can fold it in half for 3 inches, in thirds for 2 inches, and then fold again for an inch! It's not exact, but it's close enough for a lot of measuring needs.
