Local Yarn Store Day is a brick-and-mortar yarn shop appreciation day created by TNNA Yarn Group. The inaugural LYS Day will take place on April 21 and is designed to show support for small businesses while bringing together a unique community of knitters, crocheters, weavers and spinners to drive awareness and celebrate the craft.
Support your local yarn store by visiting it on April 21 and making a purchase! Many shops will have special events and sales going on that day.
As always, the knit-in is open to anyone who likes to knit and/or crochet for charity. Please help spread the word! Feel free to bring a food item to share with the group. We will have an oven and a microwave to heat up food. Water, coffee, and tea will be provided.

DFW Fiber Fest is the premier annual fiber event in the Dallas-Fort Worth community. Held each Spring, DFW Fiber Fest is a locally focused non-profit organization that offers both vendors and classes. We bring in a juried selection of local and regional fiber vendors (with a few who are from outside of our regional area to spice up the mix). Educationally, we offer a slate of classes from both nationally known and local teachers in the fiber arts – primarily in knitting, crochet, and spinning. (For more about DFW Fiber fest, see the “About” page.)
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Paula is finally ready to auction off the long awaited knitted and crochet items. Bring all those bucks that have been passed out at the Chix’s meetings. You may combine your bucks or pass them along. At this time, there are 12 items and maybe more by meeting time. There will also be an introduction of illusion knitting, also known as shadow knitting. Please bring two highly contrast yarns like black and white in order to see great results. DK or worsted with needle size 1 to 2 sizes smaller than called for.
Chriztine Kirk will present a program on double knitting. The homework instructions will be emailed to the chapter members since it was a pdf document with multiple pages. If non-chapter member would like a copy, please email Pam Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
