String Theory Yarn Shop

String Theory Yarn Shop is a welcoming space for all yarn enthusiasts to connect with each other and share their love of their favourite yarn crafts. Inclusiveness of all people regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, political view, socio-economic status, body types, or abilities is of utmost importance to me. If you love yarn and fibre arts, you are welcome! The shop has a large "sit and stitch" and learning area at the front and all the glorious yarns in the back. Community involvement and connection is at the core of the store values. Several community projects and fundraisers have been completed over the last 3 years in business. Some past projects are: Rainbow Love Shawl fundraiser for Guelph Pride; Skeins for Ukraine and silent auction for Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Relief Fun; Mini Hat Ornaments sale for Food Bank; and knit/crocheted "nests" for orphaned wildlife for Guelph Humane Society.
