Adrienne Vittadini 40% Sale Starts Saturday

We are putting all our Adrienne Vittadini yarns and pattern books on sale for 40% off starting this Saturday, March 28th. This line has always been one of Yarn Garden's favorites so we were disappointed when we heard the line was being retired. We wanted to give our customers a chance to experience the quality of these yarns at an amazing farewell price!

Lantern Moon's "Beat The Winter Blahs" Event

Here's the report from Jo:
"Boy oh boy, Sharon, Joel, Bruce, and the staff at Lantern Moon really know how to put on an event. Last night was fabulous! Their warehouse was enchanting with giant silk hanging lanterns, great lighting, and a huge nosh table in the center of the room. There was a screening of January's Spring TNNA Fashion Show in San Diego. The place was hopping with lots of dialogue, raffle drawings, and laughter; a great time was had by all! It was also a pleasure to meet the other shop owners and finally connect their name with a face. Great job Lantern Moon, sign me up for next year!"
