LYS Day was created for two reasons: to recognize brick and mortar yarn stores for the work they do, and to honor the people who support them.
Local yarn stores are the backbone of the fiber community. They don't just sell yarn, they provide community and promote the craft. They teach people how to knit and crochet and help fix mistakes. They help people pick out the right yarn for the right project. They bring new people into the love of fiber arts and remind those who haven't picked up a needle or hook in a while why they should pick it up again. They provide a place for old friends to meet up and the opportunity for new friendships to form. They give back to the local community, and so much more!
So we are having a party and we would like you to join us! 🌈

*The Craftivist will be celebrating LYS Day 2023 a little differently this year because it coincides with the Inman Park Festival. A parade is lining up in front of the shop on Saturday, 4/29 and the street will be closed. Do not come to shop on Saturday. Dress up as a gnome and join the Inman Park Parade instead!
