Tempe Yarn will be closed on Sunday, May 11th for Mothers Day.

Still need a gift for Mom? Come check out Kathy Canuel's Mother's Day Trunk Show on Saturday, May 3rd from Noon to 4pm. We also have lots of yummy yarns and fibers that Moms love. Cant decide between all the stuff Tempe Yarn has to offer, you cant go wrong with a Tempe Yarn/Arizona Yarn Gift Card. You don't even have to come in to TYF to get her a gift card, you can purchase it over the phone and we can hold it here for her or mail it to you.

Tempe Yarn would like to wish all the Moms out there a very Happy Mothers Day!

Whats for dinner tonight????

We all know that Papa John's makes great Pizza.  They also look for opportunities to give back to the community.  So it only seemed natural for Papa John's and Knitted Knockers Charities  to work together to help women who are recovering from breast cancer.  

So next time you want pizza, anywhere in the state of Arizona, order it on line and use promo code KNOCKERS40.  Not only will you get a 40% discount off the regular menu price, but Papa John's will donate 10% to Knitted Knockers Charities. This discount ONLY APPLIES to orders placed ON-LINE.  

By ordering pizza from Papa John's your stomach will thank you and you'll be helping women across the USA.   

Tell your friends about this deal and help Knitted Knockers Charities.

Knitting is Indeed Good For YOU!!!

We have three new reason as to why you should be knitting, crocheting, spinning and weaving..

Recent studies are showing that:
  • Crafting can help those who suffer from anxiety, depression or chronic pain, experts say
  • It may also ease stress, increase happiness by releasing neurotransmitter called dopamine
  • Leisure activities such as reading and crafting may protect brain from aging, study finds
 Who knew that being a fiber artist could be so good for you!
