News From The Yarn Garden!

Head Gardener's Log; June 16th, 2020

IN STORE SHOPPING + Curbside Hours

We are now OPEN for in-store shopping on Wednesdays and Saturdays! There can be only be three shoppers in the Garden at a time due to current capacity limitations. When you arrive, please call or step inside and wait for us to check capacity. If we are at capacity, please wait outside (still observing social distancing) for someone to leave or for one of us to wave you in.

New Hours!

If you would feel more comfortable with a private shopping appointment, please send YG a message on Facebook, email me at or call the shop during the hours listed above and I will be happy to schedule an appointment.

To help keep us healthy and the Garden our happy place, please read the following guidelines:

*Wear a mask. If this makes you uncomfortable, we are happy to provide you with curbside service and/or window shopping.

*Please use hand sanitizer upon entering. It is located right inside both doors, at the counter, and in the bathroom. Better yet, wash your hands.

*Observe social distancing and keep 6 feet between yourself and others in the Garden.

Seed Club: Bloom
A bloom can be the physical flower that we enjoy as a feast for our senses. It can also refer to the action of blooming, and the processes that happen to produce the blossoms that adorn our gardens and the paths we take. And what becomes of a bloom after she shares her beauty with us? What was her purpose in the life cycle of the plant she adorned? This is the theme we will explore together, during the next 12 months of Seed Club.
What IS Seed Club?
I am delighted to be your guide for another creative tour exploring the inspiration found in nature. Our journey together for Seed Club takes the form of an exclusive monthly yarn subscription box called a Seed Packet. Each Seed Packet contains a uniquely dyed skein of yarn, pattern instructions, and a little something extra. The next 12 months (from August 2020 to July 2021) will all be inspired by the concept of "bloom". Many of the dyers will be familiar to you, like AJHC Wools, Adelaide Fiber Company, and Stitch Together, but others will be a brand new discovery around the bend.

How do I sign up?

All your questions should be answered by the FAQs at the bottom... if not, please call us at (517)541-9323 or email the Head Gardener at We're so excited to have you join us in this journey!

*Sign up by June 30th to receive the first Seed Packet in August!*

One of my favorite silver linings to our recent shut down has been the opportunity to spend more time with Jason and our girls. In fact, all four of us worked together and put together this beautiful display of yarn from Noro (Ito on the left, Akari on the right). It is not only inspiring in person, but the yarn is available to inspire you on our website as well! Click on the names of the yarn to view them at

Thank you so much for your patience, support, and grace during this transition period. Operating our business in a completely new way has had its challenges and we appreciate your willingness to change with us!

Happy Stitching!
