Memorial Day Events at A Good Yarn

Each year, we celebrate Memorial day with a fundraiser benefiting the Fisher House in Lakeland, FL. This organization builds comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital. They are located near military and VA medical centers around the world, serving 1,100 families daily and saving an estimated $451 million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation since it began.

Murray will be firing up the grill for our annual cookout on Saturday, May 25 from 11am-3pm. Come enjoy hot dogs with all the fixings, plus chips, drinks and cookies, all provided free of charge with your donation - any amount helps!

While you’re here, join us for a few more fibery events:

Learn the Moebius Cast-on during our class on Saturday, May 25 between 10am-Noon! This technique is fabulous for creating ulta-wearable infinity scarves, hats and more. Call us at 941-487-7914 to reserve your spot.

Fiberists

We’ll also have The Fiberists yarn trunk show in the shop, featuring a delightful selection of yarns celebrating science and nature. As the owners and dyers of The Fiberists, Reggie and Spencer (pictured above in enamel pin form!!) have translated their mutual love of science and the natural world into yarn. We know you’ll fall in love with their gorgeous colors and scrumptious yarn bases such as Hopper Fingering, a Superwash Merino/Yak/Silk blend, and Newton Worsted, a Merino/Cultivated silk blend!
