Sandi is an excellent teacher who spends time making sure each student understands all concepts and has time to ask questions. Do not cast on before going to the first class! You will learn information that first night you will want to incorporate. Sandi is also willing to answer questions via text or email and is so helpful if you drop by the Shoppe with any issue/question you may have. This class has truly been an exceptional value when I see what I've accomplished and learned. You will come away with new confidence and knowing that you can now enjoy making sweaters on your own for yourself and others and have the knowledge to customize the fit!"
Yarn and supplies for fiber lovers in Longmont, Colorado
We are ready for another adventure with Rowan Tree Travel! Iceland Fall 2024!Travel with LYS and Rowan Tree Travel to the Land of Frost & Fire!
Ready for an adventure? Next fall, Longmont Yarn Shoppe and Rowan Tree Travel & Fibercraft are taking you on an 11 day/10 night, fiber-infused trip to the land of frost and fire: Iceland!
Our group of creative travelers will explore the country’s wool and textile traditions, distinctive foods, contemporary culture and dramatic landscape.
We’ll start in the capital city, Reykjavik, then fly over Iceland’s mountainous interior to the far north coast. From there, we’ll drive down Iceland’s west coast to its verdant southlands. Along the way, we’ll stay in comfy, contemporary inns and hotels.
We’ll visit glaciers, fiber folks and fjords, learn about turf homes and the history of Iceland’s settlement, soak in geothermal pools here and there and enjoy some fine, farm-to-table meals. Here's a special bonus for the trip: Our group will be in Iceland during the South Iceland Wool Week festival. We couldn’t have timed this tour better!
During this transitional season from endless summer days to dark winter evenings might we see northern lights? Might we come to love skyr, rye bread and kjötsupa? Will we be able to fit an Icelandic lamb in the mini-coach to bring with us? Come along and find out!
Registration for Iceland in Fall, 2024 will open on Thursday December 14th on the Rowan Travel website. For a full itinerary of this trip including pricing click HERE. Sign up for an information Zoom Session December 20th at 7:30 eastern, 6:30 central, 5:30 mountain & 4:30 pacific here.

See What Our Friends are Saying
When I saw the Custom Class being offered at LYS, I thought, 'this is my chance to not only make a sweater, but make a sweater that might actually fit.' Being a self-taught knitter, Sandi taught me tips, gave great advice, and guess what gang... I have a sweater that fits, and I can proudly wear... And I love knitting! I recommend this class to anyone, but especially someone who is unsure of their ability to create a sweater. Sandi has lots of patience and gives one the encouragement to overcome the doubt that you, too, can make something from start to finish.”
Kris is a knowledgeable, patient and fun teacher. We are all very pleased with our clogs, and will certainly be scheduling another class—I think socks are next!"
