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!!

Some Tough Decisions!!

We have had to make a few really tough decisions these past few months. For a little over a year now we have been putting off the inevitable. Due to family commitments and needs we are going to have to close Yarn & Thread by Lisa.

Right now we do have a lady that is interested in buying Yarn & Thread by Lisa. But we have no way of knowing how much of the business she will keep the same. We are waiting for approval on her loan. If her loan is approved she will take control of the business immediately. I will remain here for awhile to show her how we do things. After that it will be all hers.

If her loan is not approved then we will be selling out all of our yarn inventory, shelving, computers….the works. I will be taking a small portion of the business home to work there. Right now I am building that site. You can find our new smaller business at www.cotton-corner.com

No, we will not be carrying any of the yarns anymore. We will only be carrying the Stamped Embroidery and Cross Stitch items and the DMC Embroidery Floss. The Crochet Cotton is still up in the air. I would like to continue carrying it but we will have to see what space will allow. I have to keep the inventory down to something that I can manage myself and still be there for my family.

I look forward to still serving our embroidery customers. And I will sorely miss the rest of you. It has been 18 wonderful years!!

As changes arise I will post them here. So if you want to stay in the loop make sure you check back.  


  1. I am so very sorry to hear this. You will be missed so very much. Your customer service was always A+++++ and I bragged about your service and company to all my yarnie friends. But your family must always come first. Thanks for these past ??? years of helping me out.

  2. Hi Jana,

    For some reason this silly new system will not let me just hit reply!!

    Thank you for your kind words!! They are appreciated!!

    Yes, family does come first!! But after all these years I sure am going to miss all my regular customers like you!!


  3. Oh my, I am so sorry to hear you are shutting down. Oh where oh where am I going to find my DMC Cebelia size 10 thread at a reasonable price. I am so going to miss your store, but family does come first.

    1. Hi Vikki,

      Yes, I know...it makes me sad about the Cebelia too. I am going to try to continue carrying it. But as I mentioned it will depend on available space. Just keep an eye on www.cotton-corner.com If I can find a way to keep the Cebelia it will show up on that site.

      Thank you,
