We had visitors! And one of them was Sally Melville!

If there's anything we love at Yarnmarket, it's our customers. And we really love it when we get to see them. (Being mostly online, we don't get to see them as often as we'd like.)

On Monday, Sharon received a call from a lady who was was in Columbus, Ohio to attend a week long knitting retreat hosted by She wanted to visit our showroom, and was bringing along with her ten lovely ladies who hail from all across the country including Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Ohio, and Georgia.

Boy, were we ever excited to have visitors! The ladies spent a couple of hours browsing and shopping our warehouse. They had a great time pulling down bins and exploring the vast selection. They couldn't believe just how much yarn there was to choose from. It's really quite a sight! Thousands of bins stacked sky-high in seven different warehouses.

The ladies had fun exploring all our inventory. Some of the products they purchased included Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino, Classic Elite Wool Bamboo, RYC Cashcotton DK, Knit One, Crochet Too Tartelette, Twisted Sisters Mirage, Berroco Suede, Katia Ingenua, Crystal Palace bamboo circular knitting needles, and a number of knitting books. These are really talented, dedicated knitters so it was interesting to us to see what their interests are.

Here's the really neat part: they brought with them a special surprise guest, Sally Melville. Yes, THAT Sally Melville. Boy, was it ever an honor to have her come to see us.

Sally traveled all the way from Waterloo, Ontario which isn't too far from my hometown, Newmarket. (Yes, I was a NewMartian before I became a YarnMartian.)

If you're ever in the area and you want to visit our World Headquarters, be sure to give us a call (888-996-9276). And, well...if you can't visit us, how about sending your photo? Then when we get your emails and phone calls we can pretend you're here.
