Yes, its true Loopy Yarns is moving! Don’t worry, we’re not moving far … only a block away to 47 West Polk Street in the South Loop’s Historic Dearborn Station. We are very excited about this great space. We’ll post a picture so you can see exactly where we’ll be but it’s between Bar Louie and the UPS Store (where Sudler/Sotheby’s Realty used to be). It also has a parking lot!!!!

To prepare for the move, we are offering 40% off on tons of yarn, roving, patterns and books. Come quick for the best selections!

We will be closed for the move August 27 through September 1 (Labor Day).

It’s so summery now that we’ve decided to start our Summer Hours this week. Our hours will pretty much be the same, but we’ll be closed Wednesdays.

Also, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended our Spring Yarn Tasting last week. We love a good party like we love a good yarn, so it’s fab when the two come together! Don’t forget to use your tasting coupon the next time you come in– they’re good for another couple weeks.


Wanna taste some yarn? April 24, 2008

Have you RSVP’ed for the Spring tasting yet? We hope that you have, because all our slots for the Friday tasting are full! Oh no! You might remember previous tastings, when there was a real crush in the store. Hardly enough room to move your elbows to knit, people sitting on the floor, just too much. So, we’re trying to cut back a bit. It’s not that we don’t love you. We do. We’re trying to make the tastings better for everyone.

If you are attending the tasting on Friday, please bring a chair.  It just dawned on us that we have a limited number of chairs and the floor is concrete. Cuz we’re not Chair Depot. So if you’ve got a chair for yourself, or an extra one, please be a pal and bring it along. Thanks!

We have flat feet! Not the kind that require retro orthopedic shoes, but the new concept in sock knitting from Conjoined Creations. They started as a way to use up excess yarn in their dyeing process, so no two flat feet are alike. Still, we think that you’ll find colors that call your name. Oh, we almost forgot the best part: no ball to roll around on the floor!
