TYF Will be Open January 1st
from 10 am - 8:30 pm

Are you looking for an un+ewe+sual way to celebrate New Year's Day?

TYF will be open our normal business hours—10:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.—on January 1st, and we
look forward to spending this special day with our ewe+nique fiber friends.

It will be a wonderful way to start 2008 with stress–free and guilt–free fun. Along with your resolutions (knit more? crochet more? spin more? felt more? hmm…), you may want to create a “wish list” for the upcoming year—projects, techniques, classes, groups, yarns, fibers, etc. that you hope to enjoy in the year to come.

Stop by and spend some time with us (game scores will be posted throughout the day for the football fans).
