Yarn Asylum has recently established a dealership agreement with Ashford Wheels and Looms.
What that means for you is that we will be able to provide you with all the fine Ashford products – including their wonderful selection of spinning wheels and looms!  The catalog can be found here.  This is in addition to the Schacht line we currently have.
If you have been considering a new spinning wheel or loom – please come see us!
We presently have a Weaver’s Group that meets every other Sunday afternoon at Yarn Asylum.  We are expanding this group to include Spinners also!  All are invited – whether you already weave & spin or are just interested in more information!
Join our special Facebook group and stay up to date on what is happening.

Thursday night Group Therapy returns on September 15th!

Our table is always open during regular business hours for you to stop in to knit, crochet and socialize!

Group Therapy! Every Thursday from 6pm – 8pm

Come sit around our big table and join other fiber fanatics as you work on your current project or get inspired to start another. The talk is lively and the enthusiasm is motivating.  Drop in and meet new friends.  Bring in your problem projects and get advice from other knitters and crocheters.  Show off your finished designs and let us all envy your accomplishments!   Learn some new techniques as we share and enjoy the social aspect of our hobby!
The table at Yarn Asylum is always open for you to come in and enjoy some time to knit or crochet. Spend your lunch time getting in a few rows on that scarf or stop by on your way home from work to unwind for a bit.   Free WiFi is also available if you are experiencing a momentary Ravelry withdrawal.
