Our Staff's Holiday Picks

Posted by Beth B on 1st Dec 2022

At Around the Table Yarns, Pam and I are so fortunate to work with excellent helpers. Even better they love our shop as much as we do.  We all become familiar with what we carry in the shop in different ways and have a great variety of different paths that brought us together in the first place. We thought for our first ever blog post we would feature the things we'd choose (have chosen!) in case you need any holiday gift ideas.
