Spring is here!  It is my favorite season.  A time for new growth, renewal and changes.  And that is what we are seeing at Yarn Asylum too!

Our new website will be up and operational very shortly.  I am very excited about this news.  It is long overdue and I think it will be a huge resource for everyone.  We will have a section to highlight new products, a gallery of pictures, class schedules and much, much more.

I am also working on a permanent and active blog for Yarn Asylum.  Between the blog and the website, the direction of our newsletter will change.  More about that later.

The cubes, pegs and shelves are packed with new yarns for Spring and Summer projects.  Come by soon and see what is new!  Check out the details for our Easter Sale too!

I hope everyone has a blessed Easter!

Until next time...
