Yarn Tasting and New Products


Another Yarn Tasting
Since we have new yarns, we are having a Yarn Tasting Event on Saturday, April 11, 2015, from 1:30 pm to 4 pm.
The cost is $10 per person and you will get to leave with one of the balls of yarn in the tasting.
Each ball of yarn is a new product and is priced from $11 to $25 a ball.
Please pre-register at the shop or on the event page to hold your spot.
Registration is limited, so register with payment so you will not miss out on this event.


We now have items in a Cafepress store for you to buy.
Everything from cups to pajamas to shirts and much more.
Please buy directly from cafepress.com/ytdfcafe.
We may have items in the shop soon as well as things with other pictures and new types of items.
Check back often to see what is new.
