The Yarn Maven

The Yarn Maven is Temporarily Closed Due to a Very Unexpected Event


On Tuesday, July 16, a car hit the building we rent for the shop. No one was injured and we are very, very thankful.

The town immediately sent out a building inspector, and an engineer came to make an initial inspection. It’s much worse than it looks (something to do with the foundation), so the building has been condemned and we cannot go inside until it’s stabilized.


You can read the news story and see photos of the damage here.

We are very sorry; we cannot get anything inside the shop, and we are working on moving our phone service. You can reach us via email or on Facebook, and we will answer as soon as we can.



We are happy to announce we will reopen at 62 W Commerce St in Smyrna in September!


Renovations have begun on our new building and we are looking forward to seeing everyone in what will become our permanent location.
