SOS with LYS Retreat!

After nearly two years of isolating and sheltering at home, we at Longmont Yarn Shoppe believe that it’s time for a little “me” time to relax, reconnect, and rejuvenate for a few days in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains. Just imagine—an intimate gathering of fiber lovers enjoying an enormous stone fireplace with a crackling fire, majestic scenery, and exquisite organic and locally focused meals that are conscientiously farmed and harvested.

See What Our Friends are Saying

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!"
