And if you just don’t know what the heck a Yarn Tasting is… Have you ever wanted to try out a yarn before buying it? How will that yarn that looks like candy on the shelf actually feel in your hands? Is it really as soft as it feels? Do the colors actually look that pretty when it’s knit or crocheted? Come play with the YARN! Don’t take our word that it’s awesome! Truffle packs of the yarns are included with admission! Get tons of inspiration for your ongoing knitting and/or crocheting adventures!
