Introducing the highly anticipated addition to the Yarn Garage

The Yarn Garage and StevenBe welcomed Cameron David Andrs into our fiber family on 
Saturday, May 26th.  He was 8 pounds 13 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long.     
Here he is 3 days old and modeling his first Malabrigo sweater with owl buttons.  
Lori came to visit and he had to show off the hat she created for him.
Formerly known as the Brimmed Baby Beanie class, Lori is teaching Cameron's Cap on Monday, June 11th from 10:30-12:30 at Yarn Garage in Rosemount.  Click here for more information.
We thank everyone for their love and support!  Visit often as you never know when Cameron will make an appearance at either shop.  He may just be the new face of StevenBe Baby.

Shepherd's Harvest!

It is that time of year again when Steven ventures to Lake Elmo for Shepherd's Harvest!  Mother's Day weekend is perfectly spent roaming through the barns taking in all the amazing fiber and other delights!  My favorite part is watching someone spin directly from an angora rabbit.  Those rabbits are the cutest!!

Look at those ears!!  Be warned!  I know a couple customers who walked away with Angora Rabbits as they could not resist their charms.

Steven and Jeremy are loading up the U-Haul on Friday night and unveiling all the StevenBe lovelies on Saturday and Sunday.  They are in the normal spot so make sure they are on your list of MUST SEE booths.  Check out Jeremy's spoiler alert on Ravlery.  Here is a tidbit - we just got the new Signature Needles size 10!!!  The boys will have them at the booth, so go see the new size 10 needles for yourself.

Due to overwhelming demand, Lori is once again hosting her Two-at-a-Time Toe Up Sock class at the Rosemount location on Wednesday, May 16th, 30th, June 6th, & 20th 10:30am-12:30pm.

Steven's FAMOUS Eyelet Ponchini is now being taught in Rosemount!  You may have seen it featured by Be Sweet in their April 2012 newsletter.

It will also be featured in the Fall 2012 edition of Knit Simple magazine!  This class is your chance to make an amazingly versatile garment!  Wear it as a poncho, a cowl, or a scarf!

This is the perfect project if you haven't made a garment before.  There isn't any shaping, but you will still learn about fitting and finishing.  The combination of Be Sweet Bamboo and Extra Fine Boucle make this garment perfect for all seasons.  Click here for more information on the class! or
