Retreat

Yarn Junction's Annual Spring Retreat!

We are so excited that you are joining us this weekend for our Spring Retreat on March 24th! We have a fun day of knitting, fun, socializing, and of course... food.   Here are the details you need to know:

As a participant of the retreat you get 15% off anything you buy from Yarn Junction Co both on Friday and Saturday.  We decided to do two days this time so you have more time to shop, and also if you choose something for the retreat that needs wound, we will be able to do that before you need it for class. 
 
Lunch will be served (included in your class fee) and coffee, tea and soft drinks will be available during the day. 
 
We will have normal shopping hours on Friday, and will open at 7:30am on Saturday.
