Sock blanks are undyed sock weight yarn pre-knitted into a rectangle. They are dyed and then unraveled to knit or crochet. Depending on how you dye them they produce endless different effects. Check out our in-store display with two of them used to create a beautiful brioche fade project. They come to us knit either as a single strand or doubled. Doubled strand pieces can be unraveled with each strand used to knit 2 at a time socks (which will match each other exactly), or used double to create a worsted weight yarn. These 4 oz superwash merino-nylon blanks are just $19.99 each and that includes getting them dyed, either by us or we’ll give you all the supplies to do it yourself!

Laura Petty is a pottery artist who doesn’t just capture a vision; she makes it her own and goes way above and beyond. Bobbi met her last summer at a festival. Impressed with her beautiful pieces, Bobbi asked her if she would be interested in producing yarn bowls for Heindselman’s. Laura was only vaguely familiar with what a yarn bowl even was but agreed to give ita try. She brought her first wave  of hand thrown bowls in to the store and they were beautiful, and sold out very quickly. Her next generation of yarn bowls are here now and are simply beyond gorgeous. 3 dimensional motifs on the outside and inside of the bowls take them so far beyond anything we were expecting that we were blown away. These too will sell quickly so come in and see her artful approach to a welcome, handy accessory.


Jane Rosenberger is the force behind the great Mimma Rose products we carry. From hem stitched baby blankets and burps ready for you to add a crochet edging, to oven mitts, picnic blankets and adorable aprons, Jane’s color sense and attention to detail never disappoint. For example: the great “bowl cozies” she makes. Designed to go into the microwave, you can put a bowl of soup or chili in them and then they stand between you and the hot bowl allowing to safely remove it from the microwave. But here is where her attention to detail comes in: most sewing thread is a cotton polyester blend and will melt in the microwave. Jane makes sure that the thread she sews them with are 100% cotton and also uses batting  that is safe for microwave use. Would you have thought of that? We wouldn’t have... until the thread melted. Jane restocks her products here on a regular basis so be sure you check out what’s new every time you come in!

Rock expert and wire wrapping artist extraordinaire, Elena has produced beautiful magnetic closure wire wrapped pendants/shawl pins for the store. Using the extremely powerful rare earth magnets, these beautiful pins close shawls and sweaters without having to penetrate the fabric, and also make beautiful pendants to adorn any blouse or top. A handy fabric sleeve over the 2nd magnet makes them easy to apply and remove, and there is a great selection of sizes and colors to choose from.

Longer days mean longer hours! Starting April 1st, we will be back to our summer schedule: hours are Mon-Tues 10-6. Wed-Sat 10-9.

4 HANDS SCARF: Perhaps you have heard of clasped weft weaving, the fun technique done on a rigid heddle loom. Two yarns are linked around each other to create a pattern as you weave. A variation on a theme, in this class we are going to use a clasped WARP to start a beautiful scarf. The weaving couldn’t be simpler, but it is the warp process that makes this project distinctive. Using 2 different self striping yarns, Bobbi will get you set up and you will warp a scarf that has one yarn at one end and a different yarn at the other end. Class members will help each other in the process that really does go better with 2 people working the warping of the loom, hence the name “4 Hands Scarf”. Class fee includes 2 skeins of the beautiful Uneek dk weight self striping yarns, and a kettle dyed Raven Frog Mini Merino skein to use to weave the project. Students will warp the scarf and be ready to weave by the end of class. Bring your own rigid heddle loom (the Cricket is perfect), or use one of ours. Store looms must remain at the store. Saturday, March 16th, Noon-2 PM. OR Thursday, March 21st, 6-8 PM. $85.00 includes all supplies and use of loom (if desired).
