Yarn Garage and StevenBe visit

Zoe writes about her trip to the Yarn Garage and StevenBe. The first shops in Minneapolis to carry Interlacements Yarns:

I recently spent the weekend with The Glitter Knitter, Steven Berg, of StevenBe in Minneapolis and Yarn Garage of Rosemount MN. I spent Saturday at the Yarn Garage and Sunday with the StevenBe Luncheon crowd.

I walked into the Yarn Garage and was immediately taken aback by the yarn stacked all the way to the pressed tin ceiling.

Ladders were needed everywhere!

Where or where does one start? I decided to get a feel for the layout and see if I could find any of our yarns amid these extravagant displays.

Both stores supplied an initial blast of awe and wonderment as you first walk in. followed by hidden treasures to be discovered as you spend more time observing the details.

StevenBe exhibits a large chandelier as an upward accent to all the beauty and creativity living at your eye's level.

WOW! This looks even more impressive in person!

Using the space of a former fire station in South Minneapolis, StevenBe is more open than the cozy Yarn Garage, but there were even more treasures to be discovered as I took some time to shop.

I will be returning in the last week of July for another trunk show and to teach some classes for our Beaded Scarf Kit. I had a great time with Steven at both shops and can’t wait to return.

Hitting the road!

First up is the TNNA Summer Needlearts Market, a trade show for designers and retailers. If you fall into one of those categories, come check out what you can order at Booth #1629! All colorways will be showcased in her most popular yarns PLUS some new crochet patterns will be displayed. The trade show runs June 11-13 at the Columbus Convention Center.

After a couple days of rest, she'll be back at the Convention Center for the Knitters Connection, a show open to all June 16-18. She will be teaching the beaded scarf pattern on Friday.

Hope to see you in Columbus!
