Bigger space, More Yarn!

Posted in Yarn Shop activity tagged , , , , , at 2:16 pm by outdoorknitter

No I have not dropped off the face of the earth…We’ve just been busy moving to a new location!

The Local Needle yarn shop located in the lil ‘ol town of Macclenny Florida (just west of Jacksonville) has outgrown it’s previous location, and we are pleased to announce that we are in the process of moving to a bigger and better place.   



Bigger means More!

We have more Louet Gems (and we are introducing Riverstone) , Mango Moon, Alpaca With A Twist, Lorna’s Laces and Schaefer Yarns – all on their way here. 

We are located just off I-10 between Jacksonville and Lake City on U.S. 90 (Macclenny Ave.). AND…we are fortunate enough to have found a place adjacent to the local coffee shop.


Mark your calendars for our ribbon cutting and open house on September 15, 2007.  We will have hourly drawings, 15% in-store/storewide sale and more. 

So if you live anywhere in the vacinity, or you are travelling on I-10 in the near future, take a moment to take a drive in the country,  enjoy a small town atmosphere and come pay us visit!

New Colors of Heirloom Breeze and an Update for Seacoast Handpainted

Posted in Yarn Shop activity tagged , , at 6:25 am by outdoorknitter

The Local Needle received several new colors of Heirloom Breeze cotton. 


This cotton yarn is amazingly soft, just a touch of wool (30%) and a little bit of Lycra gives it a great bit of bounce.  

  • Finished projects will keep their shape
  • Perfect for those shapely tanks or shells
  • Soft enough for baby

On the shorelines….I had a note from Holly at Seacoast Handpainted Yarns that my order of sock yarns is done and drying.  We should receive it near the end of next week.  This yarn moves FAST, so keep an eye on the New Arrivals.
