Red Scarf Project – Thank You!

Monday, November 9th, 2015 Posted in Current Issue, Events, Fiber Arts Education, General News | No Comments »


Thank you to all who participated in the Red Scarf Project!  We have collected over 50 knit, crocheted and woven scarves to be sent to the Frannie Peabody Center here in Maine and distributed for their World AIDS Day awareness event on December 1st.  Many of the scarves came from our local community but we were thrilled to received scarves sent in from across the US and beyond.  The Frannie Peabody Center hopes to collect 500 scarves and we’re proud to be part of their efforts.

A special thank you to Saco River Dye House for supplying “Frannie Red” yarn for this project.  Learn more about the Frannie Peabody Center and World AIDS Day at

Rain at Halcyon Yarn. No, really really rain!

We had quite a deluge here in Bath, Maine, on Wed. These photos were taken from the safety of the receiving area for Halcyon Yarn. Luckily, no damage or injury that we know of to report. Judging from traffic here, I guess Mainers are not to be deterred… Though minutes after this the intersection was closed for several hours, until the storm drains could catch up and do their job.

By the way, this turned out to be one of the most shared items we’ve ever posted to our Facebook page. Feel free to head on over and give us a “Like” on Facebook  if you like :-)
