Upcoming Trunk Show...


September 1 - 22, 2017

Tot Toppers New Girl

Tot Toppers New Girl

A 5-piece Knitted Layette for the Newest Little Lady.

Sized for Preemie to Toddler with a variety of options; the accessories include sizes for older little ladies too. Work long sleeves or short depending on your weather; make bunting or a tunic depending on how cozy you want to get. The colorwork included is whimsical and minimal. Any of it can be simplified by working duplicate stitch after you knit, replacing the stranded work with stripes or even leaving pieces solid, the better to match everything in her wardrobe.

I hope you’re ready to create a delightfully squishy ensemble for a very special little lady.  No matter whether you’ll get to hold her every day or see her in pictures from afar, she’s sure to feel the love in every stitch.  Pamper that new girl for as long as she will allow it. You’ll be knitting each piece over again as your New Girl grows.

For every Tot Topper pattern & supporting yarn purchased during the Trunk Show, you will receive a chance to win a raffle prize!

Welcome Blanket Project

Looking for a way to put your fiberarts hobby to use? Come participate in the national Welcome Blanket project and welcome newly arrived refugee families to the United States.

This group is open to crocheters and knitters of all levels. We will be knitting and crocheting 10″ x 10″ squares to create communal blankets to submit to the Welcome Blanket project. You can contribute a square or two to add to a blanket or complete an entire blanket on your own.

Bring your own supplies if you have them. Have a lot? Feel free to bring some to share or donate to the project. You can also purchase yarn for the project at YBD and receive 10% off. This group will be led by YBD’s crocheter Sarah LaVoie. Welcome Blanket pattern information and writing materials for you to work on the notes that go along with your blankets will be provided. Whether you’re a knitting or crocheting pro or just getting started, come join us for solidarity, good conversation, and fun!
