The big move took place over the summer, and we opened with a Bang on Tremont and 16th St Mall!  We absolutely love our new location and meeting new customers and seeing our customers from Larimer and even Tamarac, returning to our new Red storefront!

The Yarn Shoppe Studio is a stitching room of local fiber artisans and designers.  We hand crochet, knit, spin, dye/paint and simply "create" from our hearts what we LOVE to do.  YARN!  Come and drool over the local wools, alpaca, sock yarns and select manufactured yarns. 

Artisans:  Each artisan has beautiful crocheted, knitted and felted designs for purchase:  Clothing accessories, jewelry (crocheted), cowls, scarves, hats, socks, mittens, and more! 

If you are interested in exhibiting and selling your designs in our Shoppe, read:
http://www.yarnshoppestudio.com/ServicesClasses.html for more information, then call Cassie at the Yarn Shoppe 720.473.2598 to schedule an appointment.

Yarns:  We are NOT a traditional yarn store.  We areall about featuring local yarns by amazing fiber artisans.  We also carry a select amount of manufactured yarns.  Read:

Repair:  We hand repair your damaged heirlooms and clothing, simply bring them in to Cassie and she will give you an estimate for repair. 

Classes:  We teach Crochet, Knitting, Pattern Reading and Felting classes.  Read:

Guild:  The Denver Crochet Guild meets on the first Saturday of each month 11:00am to 12:30pm at the Yarn Shoppe.  We encourage you to attend and join in the fun!  Park at a meter out front and remember to bring a crochet project with you.  Call us:  720.473.2598 with questions.

Vintage:  For those of us who love yarn AND genuine vintage handbags, clothing and accessires, do we have something for you!  A lot of customers are surprised to see our amazing selection of Genuine Vintage and Designer Handbags, clothing and accessories.  Our vintage inventory is GENUINE and in outstanding to excellent condition.  Visit:  www.VintageHandbagsDenver.com.

2nd Annual Yarn Crawl - Yarn Along The Rockies!

The 2nd Annual Yarn Crawl was awesome!  A BIG thank you to each of the 23 yarn shop owners for another fab year! www.YarnAlongTheRockies.com

It was tricky for us this year as we had just relocated from 17th and Larimer 4 weeks before the Yarn Crawl!  I thought the Yarn Crawlers would have trouble finding us, but they did not!  They came from near and far!  From all over the United States.  We met some wonderful people who are passionate about knitting and crocheting!
 

 
Who knew that those tote bags with the buttons would be such a BIG hit! 
 
It was great seeing everyone again this year.  Met some new yarn crawlers too!
 
 
Bags By CAB - Yarn Shoppe's Prize Basket $400
Crawlers were elated! Some almost cried when they saw it!
 
Charlie is from North Carolina, and came to the Yarn Shoppe to sign up his teen aged daughter who is an amazing fiber artisan! 
He did good!
 
 
Ingrid is a spinner and hand dyer.  She wowed the Crawlers with her Yarns
and they LOVED her!  Stop in and purchase Ingrid's yarn in the Yarn Shoppe.
 
Ingrid's Yarns.  Beautiful.
 
Those Yarn Crawl Passports just kept coming in!
Completed all 23 shops!
 
More completed Passports!
How very exciting!
 
I offered my own personal pattern design for my Yarn Crawl Hat in yarn crawl colors. 
It was a BIG  hit!
If you want the hat, email me:  yarnshoppestudio@aol.com the pattern is $2.00 and
will be emailed directly to you.
 
If you would like the FREE pattern for the knitted square for the Yarn Crawl.  Email me.
The square is in my Shoppe hanging on the wall as you see it here.  Stop by anytime. :)
 
Tracy and the Girls had a Blast!
 
Thank you Ladies!
 
_____________________________
 
Me; I just tried getting in as many crochet stitches as I could between Crawlers!
 
It's a difficult job, but somebody has to do it!
 
When I am not crocheting in my Yarn Shoppe what am I doing?  So glad you asked!  I am the President of the Denver Crochet Guild.  Our monthly Guild meetings are on the first Saturday of each month from 11:00am - 12:30pm.  Just pull up to one of the many vacant meters in front of my YS that Saturday morning and plug it for 1.5 hours $1.50, also the parking garage right next to my front door offers discounted parking after 4:00pm on week days and all day Saturday.  So come in and join the party!

I also have a marketing division in my Shoppe that is responsible for all of my media, and I teach women business owners how to start and/or grow their dream into a business.  Read: 
http://www.bagsbycab.com/CONTACT_US.html Contact me today via email or simply call me to set up your one hour marketing consult, and experience how 60 minutes will change the rest of your life!  
  You may also watch my crochet instruction videos on eHow.com  http://www.ehow.com/video_12020632_basic-instructions-crochet.html
 
OUR WINDOWS!
I am also married to the most amazing man who has literally transformed each window display into retail display magic!  DeForest is responsible for all of the beautiful window displays you see in my YS each week.  People come from near and far (literally) from out of state to see his windows,  and to buy his vintage handbags! www.VintageHandbagsDenver.com.    Genuine designer and vintage handbags that have been previously loved!  They are not consignment as he searches all over and shops for the merchandise including when we travel.  DeForest has been buying all of my handbags, shoes and accessories for 30 years!  Just so happens that women love yarn AND purses!
 
We are a RED storefront now on Tremont and 16th St Mall
 
People are really surprised when I tell them that I am a 30 year litigation paralegal.  I love the law and getting cases ready for trail.  I think having the skills for litigation and logistics, really helped me open a retail store.  I also think it helps with my Videos on www.eHow.com and my annual Spring Yarn Knit Out and Crochet Community Events! 
 
 FAMILY
At the end of the day, Family is all that matters.  I am so blessed to have such a fantastic family, husband, kids and my Mom who is 72 years young!  ALL of my family is so very supportive of me and my business.  We are a family owned and operated business and we all have our specialty in what we do to bring the business together as a whole.  I love my family, and we want to see your face in our new place!
