Summer Shop Hours

As of May 1st, Yarn Nook's summer hours will be:

  • Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday ~ 10am - 4pm
  • Wednesday ~ 10am - 8pm (Sit & Stitch 6pm - 8pm)

Our Wednesday night Sit & Stitch will see a few changes for the summer as well ~ no food, no raffle, no charge. We are simplifying things a bit during the summer, so we ask that you bring your knitting or crocheting, your sense of humor, and your own drinks of choice on Wednesday nights beginning in May. We are looking forward to a fun summer!

2nd Annual Customer Appreciation Crawfish Boil

Yarn Nook will host its Second Annual Customer Appreciation Crawfish Boil on Sunday, May 2nd at Kim's House (2pm until). Please come by the shop as soon as possible to pick up the map to Kim's house and to RSVP so we can prepare for the day. Last year was lots of fun ~ great food, great friends and lots of knitting and crocheting too. Kim, Kitty and Suzette would love to see you all there! (Things to bring: your lawn chairs and drinks.)
