Hey Yarnaholics! Yarntastic Fiber Arts Just Opened Sellwood-Moreland Area Yesterday

Yesterday afternoon Daddy Cat and I decided to go for a long walk to get some exercise.  We walked down to the Sellwood-Moreland business area and visited a couple of the shops we like.  Then I happened to remember that I saw a sign last week on one of the buildings announcing that a new yarn shop was supposed to open there soon.  So we walked over to that storefront to see if there was an opening date listed, and low and behold it was already open!!!!! 

See how cute it is!  It's 6802 SE Milwaukie Avenue, Sellwood, Portland, Oregon

Yarntastic Is Right Next To Stickers Asian Cafe

Daddy Cat and I went inside Yarntastic and talked to the owners, a very nice couple by the names of Dave and Lesley Bracken.  They said they had just opened the store at noon that day and were still awaiting shipments of inventory and getting things set up.  But, they decided to open early and invite the neighborhood in so they could meet each other and so the neighborhood could see the new store. 

It's very nice, cool, and quiet inside, with a lot of different types of yarns.  The yarns there are a step up from the kinds that you'd buy at the craft store, but still affordable, and they will have a lot more to choose from once they've gotten all their stock in.  They also have a good supply of knitting needles and crochet hooks.  I'm sure they will have patterns and books there eventually too. 

You should make a special trip just to see the Bracken's new store and talk to them.  You will be glad you did.  The store is located at 6802 SE Milwaukie Avenue, just off of Bybee Boulevard, a couple doors south of the Moreland Theater and right next to Stickers Asian Cafe.  It's in the same spot that Haggis McBaggis used to occupy. 

The store hours are:
Tuesday - Friday     11am-7pm
Saturday                10am-8pm
Sunday                   Noon-4pm
Closed On Monday
Phone: 971 302-7137

When you go to see them, just tell them that Kay (Momma Cat) sent you, or that you heard about them at
