This weekend Fiber Functions Yarns is having their Fall Open House on October 6 and 7th, 2012. Audrey Anderson is the wonderful lady who owns the shop, she has an open house the first weekend of October every year. She carries knitting and weaving supplies, has classes that you can register for, an awesome variety of yarns that she carries! I love to go to her shop as she carries alot of wool, artistian yarns and I am in love with the nettle yarn she carries as well. She is a wealth of information and would love to hear from you if you are having problems get some yarn or with something you are making. Fiber Functions Yarn is located at 682 263rd Avenue, Frederic 715-472-8276. Now don't let the location scare you away from goint to the shop, it is well worth the trip. Also Audrey does mail order and will open if you schedule a time to come out. The easiest way from our location is to go from Rice Lake on 48 west towards Luck. Any questions give Audrey a call.
