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 :-)

Red Scarf Project

Want to knit or crochet for a good cause? Please join Halcyon Yarn in supporting the Red Scarf Project and the Frannie Peabody Center in Portland.

The project goal is to have over 500 red scarves ready to go by November 15th in preparation for a World AIDS Day awareness event. The scarves will be distributed around different locations in Maine in an effort to educate the public on the significance of HIV/AIDS and the need for community involvement in promoting understanding, and bringing an end to stigma.

We have Yarn!! Our generous friends at Saco River Dye House have donated “Frannie Red” yarn specifically for this project. You can pick up the beautiful 100% wool yarn right here at Halcyon Yarn – just ask at the counter.

Guidelines: Please knit or crochet a scarf measuring 6” x 60”

  • Please drop off completed scarves at the following locations:
  • Portland: Frannie Peabody Center prevention office – 1 Spring St., Portland

FiberMe 2015 – thanks to all!

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015 Posted in Events, Fiber Arts Education, General News | No Comments »


What a wonderful week we shared at FiberME 2015! Every year in early August we celebrate our local Maine fiber arts community, and this year was our 4th annual tour. With a bus full of twenty people we traveled to farms, mills, and the studios of some very talented artists and makers of all things fiber related. Participants came from as close as the next town and several from as far as the west coast. Each of the venues we visited made generous donations to our participant raffles so everyone got to take home treats and souvenirs from this special week – from signed books and handmade fiber jewelry, to alpaca top and skeins of cashmere. The week ended with a boat ride to Cabbage Island for a classic coastal lobster and clambake.


In addition to the daily excursions participants learned needle felting in a special ‘make it and take it’ class, and enjoyed meeting and shopping from over twenty Maine artists at our annual craft fair. Between great company, perfect weather, delicious local food, and a whole lot of fiber art, everyone had a terrific time!

Our thanks goes out to the extra work everyone put in here at the shop to make it a great week, to the incredible venues that hosted us and generously shared a behind-the-scenes look at their work, and to the wonderful spirit and camaraderie of everyone who joined us. A special thanks to our tour coordinator, Jane Weir, for anticipating every detail and making it a wonderful week.


Be sure you’re signed up for our email newsletter, and check our class and events calendar for news about this and other great upcoming events at Halcyon Yarn. If you’d like to be a part of this very special event next time, or for more details, please call or email: classes coordinator.
