New Store Opening: Make One Yarn Company

Hi, everyone! I am popping by the blog today to tell you all about a fantastic new yarn store that has just opened in the Southern California area. Make One Yarn Company in La Verne, CA opened up its doors recently on March 1. I found out about the event from Make One's Instagram account, which I follow. I am so glad that I decided to make the long drive out to La Verne for the opening (it's about a 40 minute drive in good traffic), because the store is super cute and I definitely plan on going back.

Make One is nestled in a great location in a small shopping area (right next to Tuesday Morning). I missed the shop the first time through the parking lot but I was told later that the shop is planning on having a much larger sign made soon. I arrived a little before 1pm, less than an hour after the shop opened and it was already filled with knitters and other fiber enthusiasts excited to check out and support a new local shop.

I was greeted with a wonderful display of Republic of Wool yarn. I've actually ordered this yarn online before but it was really cool to see a lot more of it in person. The stuff was flying off of the table at record speed.

The store has an airy layout with a small, but well curated selection of yarn. I think they're still getting in a lot of stock and the shelves are not full yet. But some of fantastic yarns I saw were Madelinetosh, Fibre Co, Berrocco, Ewe Ewe Yarns and they will be getting Neighborhood Fiber Co in as well.

The shop also had a great selection of notions, including Knitter's Pride needles and project bags handmade by one of the owner's mother. I grabbed gorgeous floral bag that reminds me of summer and watermelons.

There was a lot of bustle at the store and a great looking snack table that I, unfortunately didn't really get to take part of. But it looks like a great place for future classes and knit nights and I just wish I lived a bit closer.

I am always excited when a new yarn store opens in the area and Make One is off to a great start! I definitely plan on coming back soon. If you are in the SoCal area and are in need of some fiber-y retail therapy, Make One is a great place to go. Find out more about the shop on their Facebook page.

Happy knitting!
