You Can Do Anything



The wind chimes in the photo have a special meaning. They came from the home of my mother-in-law who died of cancer. Before she died she loved humming birds and watched them in her back yard all the time.

Now look closely at the picture. Can you see the humming bird and the nest it build?

Now the question I have for you is if this little bird can build a nest on top of a horse in a wind chime and set on her egg day in and day out spinning in the wind, WHAT can you do if you put your mind to it. I think anything you want.

The good news is that you don't have to be a kid to make it. Try making it in Abracadabra by HiKoo. The color changing effect of this yarn makes for a wonderful surprise for any kiddo.

to trust those bridges and cross over them so we can attempt to reach each other.”

Tempe Yarn Open On Monday (Jan 19th)




Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience.

Tempe Yarn Celebrates His Message with “A DAY ON” This Monday, January 19th.


On Monday, January 19th (11 am to 2 pm), Sam, the son of the founder of Colinette Yarns, will be at Tempe Yarn to help roll out their Arizona Dream Kit trunk show. 



But Sam is more than a pretty face with a Welsh accent,  he has been involved in every aspect of the Colinette Yarn business.  Come listen to him share his industry  experiences but don't be surprised if he tells some Welsh folk tales.

This Class Starts on Thursday(1/15) at Tempe Yarn

SWEATER DESIGN 101

Have you ever wanted to make a Cardigan Sweater that fits you like it was made for you? Now you can gain those skills and master sweaters once and for all.  Angela Smart, a true master knitter, will be starting a Cardigan Design Class 101  on January 15 from 4 to 6 pm.  This class meets once per week for ten weeks through March 19th

P.S. (special comment from Terry)  This is a class that frees you to be an independent knitter.  While the focus is making a sweater that fits you...specific to your body type and measurements, it is much more.  In this class you will want to bring a notebook and capture all the tips, tricks and knowledge that Angela so freely shares.  You get so much more than a sweater that fits you like no other garment.  At the end of the 10 weeks, you will have mastered skills that translate to all of your knitting.  

It starts on Thursday (1/15 at 4 pm) so don't think to long.  Do something nice for yourself, you will not regret it.  

Share the Love 2.0

Arizona Yarn and Tempe Yarn are excited to introduce this very special program that will bring together fiber enthusiasts from both yarn stores.

Through Share the Love we hope you will give and receive products you love and develop some new friends to cherish along the way.

All members will receive a member number (shhh it’s a secret!) that you will put on all of the “gifts” you give. You will have a week to drop off your gifts and then a week to pick up your presents from your new mystery friend.

Each time you will have a new mystery friend assigned to you and will receive some information about them to guide you in the gift giving. So during this event you will have exchanged 2 gifts with 2 new friends.

Don’t worry about the “gift wrap” or the winding; we will package it up for you. At the end of this event we will be hosting a “meet and greet” party for all members so that you can meet your new friends in person.

Stop by one of the shops and get the details. 

The sign up for "Share the Love" is open till January 31st.






"It’s not just a yarn shop
         …it’s a community!"
