Name Handpainted Yarn Contest

We have 3 different color selections of handpainted yarn in right now that need names… we want your help! Please use the comment section on our Facebook post here ( to provide 3 different names for the 3 different yarns pictured in the image. Replies anywhere aside from our Facebook page will not be entered into the drawing. Three winners will be selected. One of the names each winner provides will be used to name one of the hanks of yarn and each winner will receive a $5.00 gift certificate for our yarn store. As always, thank you for your support and have a wonderful Friday!

DBNY Auction Starts Monday 10/26!

We’re looking at a room full of gorgeous fibers and other notions. Currently, we have right around 100 lots available for preview… and expect to have closer to 200 ready by the time bidding open on Monday, October 26th, 2015 at 12:00pm (Noon) EDT.

Check out the preview here!
