Shop Spotlight: Heidi's Yarn Haven
Heidi's Yarn Haven is a vibrant yarn shop in Ukiah, CA. Ukiah is located in southern Mendocino county and sits on the Hwy 101 corridor where wine country meets the redwoods. The shop is located in historic downtown and is surrounded by other locally owned small boutique style shops and restaurants.
Clara is an incredibly talented and creative fiber artist. Sharon, a retired school teacher, learned to knit at the shop and has progressed brilliantly. It has been no surprise that she has become one of the shop's beginning knitting instructors. Jenny also learned to knit here at the shop. She is an enthusiastic knitter and now leads a monthly knit night and also helps out in the shop during the days. “Purl” is Heidi's rescue dog who joined the shop last year. She has taken on the role of our official shop greeter and is loved by all.
Being located on the Hwy 101 corridor brings customers from both near and far. They are a loyal and creative bunch. They are kind and welcoming to each other and help to nurture creativity in one another. The majority are knitters, but lately there has been an upswing in crocheters as well.
"My shop is first and foremost a shop that is welcoming to all. Shop inventory focuses on all different kinds of quality yarn and notions to satisfy the needs of customers from all income bases. We have something lovely for everyone.
"Crystal Palace Bamboo is highly polished and swivel on the needle and service is outstanding. They have been a staple in my shop for 20 years."
