Welcome to Yarn & Thread by Lisa's Blog

I wanted a place were I could let you know the latest updates. And were we could share ideas or opinions on yarns. I figured a blog was better than a lot of emails.

Feel free to post your opinions on yarns we carry or ask questions. I look forward to hearing from you!!

Custom Yarn Orders

I’ve had several of you contact me with concerns about being able to get your favorite Bernat or Patons Yarns. Don’t worry, just because we are not carrying all of the Bernat and Patons yarns anymore does not mean I can not get them for you. I am still more than willing to special order yarns for you. All you have to do is let me know what you need. You can call or email me. I’ll gladly take your order over the phone or I can send you a PayPal invoice by email.

I do have to ask that you order by the bag though. Since they are yarns that we are not carrying I do not want any leftovers. I can give you a price and bag quantity when you contact me. If for some reason the yarn is not available I’ll let you know as soon as I know so we can go to plan B. There is usually about a week delay for special order items to ship since I have to order the items in. I order every week though so special orders are not a problem at all.

I wish we could still carry all of the Bernat and Patons yarns. But quite frankly we are out of space!! Our warehouse is packed. So we had to make some very hard decisions. Of course only the best sellers get to stay. And we are trying to focus more on the American made products. That does not mean that the other yarns are not lovely yarns. It just means that they do not sell as well for whatever reason. And we have to be realistic here. It just does not make good business sense to tie up a lot of money on inventory that is not selling well.

As soon as I get a minute I want to put a page up at the website to list the yarns with bag counts and prices that I can special order for you. That might help for reference sake. Until I get the page up though don’t hesitate to contact me if you can not find a yarn you are looking for.

And of course if we are continually getting request for a yarn we will consider carrying it on a regular basis.

Thank you all for your continued patronage!!


  1. I must agree that Lisa WILL order anything for you and will even make sure your entire order of yarn has the same lot numbers and are the correct color! I have been busy with woodwork but Lisa, I will be ordering from you soon!

  2. Hi Linda, Thank You for your kind words!!

    We do try. Dye lots can be a bit of a stickler sometimes. But we do the best we can.

    Woodwork, how fun!! I'm better with knitting needles or a crochet hook though.
