Lakeside Yarn News

12th Annual Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop!

Get ready! We are gearing up for the best Shop Hop yet! 15 yarn stores in the Twin Cities are working together to bring you a spectacular knitting and crocheting event April 5-8, 2018, all while raising money for local food shelves! Check out the MN Yarn Shop Hop website for details on how to prepare for your hop weekend.

Each shop will have a special pattern and yarn dyed exclusively for the hop! "Inspired by Heros" is the theme this year, and we can't WAIT for you to see our pattern, designed by our very own Cynthia Cushing and inspired by a young woman named Tillie. Stop by our shop during the hop to hear more about why we chose Tillie as our hero.

Join the Lakeside Loyalty Club!

We are happy to introduce our new Loyalty Club where loyal customers will be rewarded for their purchases at our shop! When you spend $400 on yarn at Lakeside Yarn, you will be rewarded with a certificate that will get you:

How to Participate
Print out the Lakeside Loyalty Card, fill out your information, and then bring it in to the shop when you make your next yarn purchase. We will keep the card at the shop for safekeeping, so you don't have to worry about losing it! Anytime you make a yarn purchase, just tell us your name, and we'll keep record of your progress toward the reward. Easy peasy.

The Fine Print
Only full price yarn purchases, net of returns, qualify for loyalty card credit.
Purchases of classes, gift certificates, books, patterns, needles and other notions are not eligible for credit.
Reward certificate must be presented at time of redemption. The $40 credit must be redeemed in full in a single transaction. The $80 purchase may include any full price merchandise, including yarn, classes, books, patterns, needles and other notions.
Reward certificate will be applied to yarn purchases first.
Purchases must be recorded at the shop AT THE POINT OF SALE ONLY. It is the responsibility of the customer to request loyalty card credit.
Reward certificates expire one year from the date of issuance.
The program may be modified or terminated by Lakeside Yarn in its discretion, with or without notice and without further obligation

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped with our Shibui MIX Party on November 17th! Keep an eye out at the shop for new Shibui models, as we can't keep our hands off this yarn! And please bring in your finished Shibui projects for a show-and-tell! We'd love to see them!

Knitters' Night Out: Every Thursday Night

Join us every Thursday evening from 5-8pm for Open Knit Night and meet and greet new and old knitting/crochet friends. We will continue to offer "light help" during Open Knit and will set up tables and supplies for any food or beverages you wish to bring to share.

My Own Private Yarn Shop

You and your knitting group can reserve the shop during non-business hours, for your own private knitting time and a little inspiration. There is no fee, and no purchase requirement, but sometimes it just helps to be surrounded by good things as well as good people. Call us at 952-401-7501 if you want to give it a try.
