Many of of our friends in the fibre business, and we ourselves, help fill our goodie bags and provide terrific door prizes.

First among them is Estelle Yarns, a wholesale supplier of yarns to the industry. Do take a look at their site. You’ll find gorgeous examples of their yarns worked into very appealing projects. We so appreciate Estelle Yarns ongoing kindness and generosity to the YOSO retreat.

Each of these generous companies and individuals also helped make YOSO just a little bit better.
