Why not visit us in Maine… Join us for a class!

Whether you live around the corner, or across the country, we’re glad you’re part of the Halcyon Yarn community! If you’re thinking of visiting Halcyon Yarn, why not take a class? Our early winter classes are posted online, and more are added regularly. We offer classes in weaving, knitting, felting, spinning, rug hooking, dyeing and more! Maine is a beautiful place, and we’d love to see you in person. Some new offerings include Barbara Burns teaching Tapestry weaving in January, and in April, we’ll be hosting two days of knitting classes with Ann Budd.

Stay tuned for more details, and more great events worth traveling for.  Let us help you plan a visit to midcoast Maine!
