APRIL 2023
Spring has sprung and while there are still tulips, forsythia and some daffodils in bloom, nothing is prettier than some spring colors of yarn at Silver Threads & Golden Needles. 

Pictured are just some of the colors of Emma's Practically Perfect Sock Yarn. Want to see more? Go to silverthreadsyarn.com to see all the colors we carry in this scrumptious yarn.

The Easter Bunnies have been busy decorating the shop for spring.

Here are a few pictures of their hidden treasures just ready for you to find.
