What's Happening at Your LYS

Welcome to LYS, your cozy and friendly Yarn Shoppe located in the heart of downtown Longmont!  There is a lot happening around here!!

In September and we are going strong!
We are making the most of our Main Street store front and large classroom space in the back of LYS since being able to expand to the front of the building in September of 2018.  Check out our listings of classes.  We have something for every fiber aficionado and offerings from beginner to beyond beginner!  

LYS is headed to Uruguay and Buenos Aires!  Join us for the trip of a lifetime in January 2020 as we head south to visit the home of Malabrigo Yarns & Manos, tour both Buenos Aires and Montevideo, and hang out with Knitting Rockstars Joji Locatelli and Bristol Ivy.  Click here for all the details! 

ARNE & CARLOS visited Longmont Yarn Shoppe in October 2019, which got us totally into the Hygge Lifestyle Mode again.  Hanging out, sharing stories, eating good food, learning and laughing.  It was a blast.  So much so that we have decided to repeat our 31 Days of Hygge that we celebrated last year with another 31 Days of Hygge this December.  Registration for 31 Days of Hygge with LYS is happening now!  And, we've added another wonderful option, the Box of Hope!  Choose one, choose both!  You decide!  Don't wait til the last minute- last year we sold out!!  Registration closes November 6 or until we sell out!

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!"

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!"
