As most of you know, for the past three years my husband Alex has been fighting ALS. I have been struggling to keep the store open, by learning the administration side of the business which was always Alex’s responsibility, while at the same time, being his caretaker.


Some days I have been overwhelmed and others have been rewarding and joyful. Because Yarns and Arts has always been my ˘happy˘ place, where we have developed so many wonderful friendships over the years, I have tried very hard to keep the store open.


However, Alex needs me more than ever and I want to be there for him. Sadly, I can’t manage everything anymore and it is with a heavy heart that I have come to realize I can’t work in the store on a daily basis. For that reason, we’re changing the concept of the business. Yarns and Arts will no longer be a retail store but will become a Knitting Studio instead.


We will continue to have knitting groups on specific days, some yarn will be available for sale and we will be offering knitting, crochet and looming classes on a reservation basis.


We are currently working out the details and will advise you when we have more information. In the meantime, you can visit our website ˘˘ to see the schedule and to register for groups and classes.


Starting tomorrow, we’re having a SALE offering 25% off yarns and notions. The sale will happen from Tuesday, October 1st until Thursday, October 10th, 2019.  We hope you will come to take advantage of these savings.


Alex and I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for being our loyal customers and friends for the past 9 years that we have been in business.  If you have any questions, you can call me at 954.326-1422 or e-mail:
