The Yarn Maven, established in March 2017, is a bright and friendly yarn shop in historic downtown Smyrna, Delaware. They carry a variety of yarn to suit your needs, from wool and alpaca to organic cottons, linens, blends and even acrylics, in an assortment of solids, hand-dyes and prints. They also offer a large supply of needles and hooks, and have classes for beginning and experienced knitters. They carry an assortment of print patterns and they are an official Ravelry pattern sales* shop. Handmade consignments by local crafts people are also available for purchase.
There is a large table/seating area where knitters are welcome to sit and work on their projects any time the shop is open. Their official Knit Night (crochet welcome) is on Wednesdays from 4pm-8pm and Knit Saturday is every Saturday from 10am-3pm. The fun is free and open to the community.
