A crowd of community members gathered Friday at Warm Hearts Yarn for a ribbon cutting ceremony at its new lacation, 35 Rover Blvd., in White Rock.
In addition to knitting and crocheting, Warm Hearts Yarn carries supplies for other crafts, such as beading and stocks gift items, cards, unique handmade jewelry and clothes.
Handcrafts, especially knitting and crocheting, have seen a huge rise in popularity in recent years, bringing many new crafters into the fold.
Education is an important goal at Warm Hearts Yarn. Co-owner Katie Brousseau is a former fourth grade teacher and she and co-owner Heidi Narum will offer a variety of classes at the new store.
One of the most important aspects of Warm Hearts Yarn is community. Everyone is welcome to share, learn, teach and most importantly, interact with fellow crafters.
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Visit online at http://www.warmheartsyarn.com.
