Lakeside Yarn News

13th Annual Minnesota Yarn Shop Hop!

Get ready! We are gearing up for the best Shop Hop yet! 14 yarn stores in the Twin Cities are working together to bring you a spectacular knitting and crocheting event April 4-7, 2019, 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 Games" 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 the game TETRIS.

Inventory Reduction Sale

In order to make room for the new products and activities, we will be reducing our inventory by roughly half! These yarns will be on sale beginning January 2 through March 31 and will be marked anywhere from 30-50% off. The specifics are too numerous to mention here; the best way to see what we have is to visit us at the shop. We think you will like what you see!

Lakeside Loyalty Club

UPDATE: December 31, 2018

We will be winding down our Loyalty Club program, since the product and activity mix at the shop will be expanding beyond yarn. Don’t worry, the wind down will occur gradually, according to the following schedule:

We are happy to introduce our 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

Knitters' Night Out: Every Thursday Night

Our Thursday Open Knit will be on pause for the time being to allow for future planning.

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.
