Enjoying a Crafty Party at A Good Yarn


Debra’s hosting a Christmas party at her store, A Good Yarn, in Prescott, AZ. We’re all enjoying knitting and crocheting together.

Here’s a photo of what I’m working on at the moment and you can see more photos of the shop and group below.

Debra has a new partner this year who carries weaving fibers and supplies. Carma runs the weaving portion. Her prices are awesome and the quality is fantastic. I’ve purchased some wonderful fibers from her by the ounce.

I just have to say that between my two trips to Prescott, AZ, my visits to A Good Yarn are among my favorites amongst the yarn stores that I have visited in my travels. Not only is everyone friendly, and I mean customers, staff and all, but she has an incredibly nice selection in my opinion of less than common fibers. And high quality fibers. And more fibers per foot of store space that I want to work with than most places I’ve walked into. And I love that she carries uncommon buttons too!

I have also overheard her on the phone with customers for private orders and such and just have to say, her and her partners’ customer service is just awesome. She’s really helpful, professional in all her dealings, obviously goes the extra mile and yet, her “knit pit” has the feel of visiting the comfort of someone’s home. There’s no fireplace, but I easily imagined one nearby while sitting on her couch and working along with everyone else. Cozy indeed!

If you’re in the area, definitely stop in and see Debra at A Good Yarn. Tell her you read about her on my blog and extend a healthy howdy from me.

  1. Julia, you are so kind! We did so enjoy your visit. Try to make it before next December. We’ve got lots of ideas cooking….. Deb

  2. What nice words, Julia. It was great meeting you again, this time with your hand turned and carved crochet hooks – beautiful! You’re a talented woman and we’re fortunate to have had you visit and sit for a while.

    Deb forwarded your blog link to me here at home – the snow we had two days ago is still around and has left Prescott in a winter wonderland so no wheelchairing for me outside until the sidewalk paths get wider than s shovel’s width.

    Happy New Year!

    • Hi Jeannie!

      Thanks for dropping by my blog. I’m so glad you posted – I could not remember your name and it wasn’t on the card I grabbed! I did hear y’all are up to your eyeballs in snow. Well, maybe not quite that much, but still. ;)

      Thank you for your kind compliments on my hooks. They are hand carved, but not turned I’m afraid. I don’t have the necessary equipment (or space) for turned hooks. Maybe someday!

      Take care and stay safe! And best wishes for an amazing New Year!

      Blessings,
      Julia
