Happy Mother’s Day!


Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Halcyon Yarn!

Searching for the perfect last minute gift for a special mother or mother figure in your life? Whether it’s your mom, grandmother, the mother of your child, or someone wonderful who nurtured you (maybe you have a weaving or knitting “mom” who taught you the craft?) we’re here to help with a Gift Certificate for that special someone!

How many of you learned your craft from a mother, grandmother, or other mother figure? Or maybe it’s your turn to share and there’s someone you’re teaching your favorite fiber art? A Gift Certificate for them and the opportunity to spend time on a project you plan together could be just the right way to connect!

That’s what being a mom is all about, sharing what you know, having fun together, instilling skills in another generation, nurturing traditions, and making the time to spend with someone you love. For many of us fiber arts are at the heart of skills shared and time well spent!


We are happy to email the recipient a colorful digital Gift Certificate with your personalized message in plenty of time to celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 8th!

Or, we can email it to you directly to print at home and deliver in person. Flowers, brunch, and a Gift Certificate to Halcyon Yarn, now that sounds like a perfect Sunday!

Halcyon Yarn Gift Certificates never expire and they can be used for any purchase at Halcyon Yarn. You can order online and specify your message and delivery method, or call 800-341-0282 and let us help you place an order and celebrate mom!

For your Gift Certificate to be emailed in time please place your Gift Certificate order no later than 4pm (EST) Saturday, May 7th. Telephone service is available until 5pm Friday, and email orders will be processed until 3 pm Saturday, if you need further assistance outside of telephone hours you may contact us here.

Guild Rewards Program – up to 5% back annually for your guild!

When placing orders at Halcyon Yarn (which we hope you’ll do often!) individual members of an enrolled guild identify themselves as a member of that guild and are matched up in our system. At the end of each calendar year Halcyon Yarn totals up the individual member purchases for each guild and sends that guild a check for 5% of those sales.

How do I participate?

  • Earn rewards by doing one of the following:
    • Make a note of your guild in the “order comments” for online orders
    • Mention your guild over the phone

Check here for more details and to see if your guild is listed.

If not, work with your guild so it can apply to participate.

We look forward to helping support your guild and appreciate your doing so every time you shop at Halcyon Yarn!

There’s just a few days left to finish holiday shopping and we’re here to help! While it may be too late to make something there’s plenty to give from Halcyon Yarn.
