We love to see new LYSs open and today we’d like to welcome Yarntastic! Fiber Arts, a new shop in Portland, Oregon. Owned by Lesley Bracken, a master knitter who has studied everything from color theory to hand dyeing to advanced knitting techniques, Yarntastic is spacious, yet welcoming, with a knitting nook that invites customers to hang out for a while. Lesley plans to carry a broad range of yarns- established brands like Cascade, Rowan, Mirasol, Frog Tree, and Dream in Color as well as indie yarns like Nerd Girl and Cat Mountain. Classes will be offered in the future, and a schedule is in the works. The shop is located in historic Sellwood/Moreland, already a great destination neighborhood. See the Yarntastic! Fiber Arts website for more info. We wish Lesley and Yarntastic! the best of luck!
