All Tied Up” Yarn Shop Coming to State Street
Calling all knitters, All Tied Up Yarns is opening at 14 State Street next to Nash’s Framing & Art Supply. Shop creator and owner, Andrea Cosachov, has been knitting since she was 16 years old, and considering opening a yarn shop for some time. Connie Reilley, Executive Director of the Downtown Auburn BID, encouraged Cosachov’s idea and helped her secure her downtown location.
The new retail effort is a family affair. One of Andrea’s young daughters created the charming illustration of a cat all tied up in yarn, which became the shop’s logo. Next, Andrea put a great deal of thought and research into the products and classes she will offer.
The shop will be very comfy and inviting, and will stock many American sheared, spun and dyed yarns like Schaeffer Yarns from Interlaken, NY, as well as internationally-known brand yarns. Needles, books, notions and patterns, including the Interweave line, will also be stocked.
Andrea has exciting ideas for the classes she will offer, ranging from the basics of knitting to group classes for all ages and levels of experience. Learning how to make Christmas stockings, do sock knitting and lace knitting, plus offering a special project each month, will ensure a variety for local knitters to choose from. Another possibility is a knitting book club will be organized.
All Tied Up Yarns promises to be a wonderful draw to State Street, and a social gathering place for like-minded people, which is a valuable resource to the community. Please visit Andrea’s website www.alltiedupyarns.com for updated information about the opening.
