It is time for the annual Best Little Yarn Crawl in Texas – and this year we are even celebrating the 15th anniversary of this fun event!

We are delighted to highlight Ancient Arts Yarns as our focused brand for the Crawl.   We have a variety of bases including Lascaux DK, Socknado, Nettle Soft and more!

On Saturday, 10/9 we will also have a trunk show with Lone Wolf Fiber – and she always has an amazing array of locally raised and dyed fibers that encourage a beautiful project.

Over the ten days of Yarn Crawl, the shop will be open our regular hours – Monday through Saturday 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday 12 – 5 pm, and the shop will be open on the Monday and Tuesday (10/11 and 10/12) of the event.

The Tinsmith’s Wife loves fiber, cats, and coffee….

We encourage you to bring your current project and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat or two), and there is always laughter and inspiration. There are also great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time, just outside our doors.

In a nutshell – we have a lot of great stuff! The journey is walking through the rooms of our amazing historic building and coming across another gem of luscious inspiration.

Enjoy and explore – and if you are interested in learning one of our crafts, we would love to help you learn as well!   Just call the shop to coordinate a time to come in.
