Local Yarn Store Day is finally here! After being postponed from its original April date, the one-day event will be held this Saturday, September 12th. On this day, celebrate your local yarn shop, thanking them for the inspiration, education, friendship, and, most importantly, the yarn that they have provided during your making journey. To encourage you to shop-til-you-drop, several designers and yarn brands are offering free patterns. We picked four that you won’t want to miss. Plan your Saturday thoughtfully, paying close attention to alternative store hours, mask policies, and/or curbside pick up opportunities.
