What’s New?

Summer 2016

Great Yarns and Yarns etc… will be closed Saturday, July 2nd through Monday, July 4th. We hope you enjoy a lovely holiday weekend!


Great Yarns’ Summer of Hats Extravaganza!!!

We love all of our wonderful customers at Great Yarns!  We want to challenge you, keep you knitting and/or crocheting, and make sure you feel the accomplishment and enjoyment that your stitching deserves.  That’s why we are hosting our Hat Extravaganza KAL and CAL this summer!

This program is very flexible and fun…..and designed to teach you new things with projects that are quick, portable, and might just make great holiday gifts!  Here’s how it works:

  • We will feature different knitted or crocheted hats each week
  • Projects are skill-builders. We’ll start with the simple and move to the more complicated, so you can learn as you go!
  • Already comfortable with a technique? Pick a different one to try!  You can join at any time, and make as many of a particular kind of hat as you want.  It’s up to you!
  • Skills will be gathered from a variety of styles and shapes:

Basic Beginner Hats




Fair Isle


Crochet Lace Sun Hats


Character Hats

Man Hats

  • Most patterns are free, either on Ravelry or written by our staff. Samples are in the store and we’ll give you links and help you select the appropriate yarn and needles.
  • Of course, all of us will be available to help you master your new skills. There is no fee to participate; simply drop in, and we’ll help you with questions and new stitches.

The KAL/CAL will run through August.  Purchase supplies from Great Yarns, bring in your completed hats, and we’ll enter you in drawings for terrific prizes that will be just what you need for your fall knitting and crocheting.

Want to learn, but you don’t wear hats?  Don’t let that stop you from joining the fun!  We’ll have a Donation Station where you can give your completed hats to charity.

We hope to see you soon!
