After 7 years on the road, selling yarn & accessories all over the Southeast, I have found the best and most ethical, reliable suppliers. If it matters to ME, I hope it matters to you. This shop is focused solely on providing yarns in every weight and fiber variety that are most often requested, plus expert instruction and assistance. That’s it.
At the moment, you will find supplies from Plymouth Yarn Company, The Fiber Seed, Blue Heron Yarns, Opal, Knitter’s Pride, Never Not Knitting, Churchmouse Designs, Ann Norling and others. We are a Ravelry Pro shop, which means we can help you find just the perfect project on Ravelry, then we can purchase and print your pattern for you.
We offer several services to our customers here at Mobile Yarn. Finishing your knitted or crocheted project and custom work, making whatever your heart desires, are available. We can order yarn for you if you’d like a color we don’t stock, and even offer a discount for full bags. We can restore a beloved piece of fiber art to its former beauty, finish an "almost-done" project, match a family heirloom Christmas stocking, or even knit up a batch of stockings for everyone in the family. Repairs (crocheted, knitted or tatted) We work on afghans, doilies, tablecloths, clothing, antique linen edgings, etc.
Tatting is a centuries-old lacemaking techniques. Although it may appear complex, the craft is accomplished with a few very simple, basic moves.
In no time at all, you could be making delicate heirloom quality lace.
At Mobile Yarn, you will find all the best books, tools and threads for Tatting. In addition to Knitting & Crochet, Mobile Yarn is the Gulf Coast home for Beginning to Advanced learning in Tatting. Beginning Weavers will find Schacht Looms and accessories and classes to get you going. We also have supplies for some fun “other” stringy crafts such as Kumihimo Braiding and Needle Felting. IF IT HAS A STRING, IT’S OUR THING!
Heidi Sunday learned to knit, crochet & embroider as a girl scout in the early 60’s in Buffalo, NY (those long winters!). She was born in Southern California & grew up there & in New York City (Buffalo, too!) before coming to Mobile in 1989. As a career accounting & computer professional, she always dreamed of owning a yarn shop. In Mobile, she learned to Tat & was instantly hooked! In 2001, Heidi’s Yarnhaus was born. Seven fun filled years later, she became a travelling sales representative in the Needlearts industry.Along the way, she added Weaving to her repertoire of “string skills”.
In her seven years selling yarn to hundreds of yarn shops in 12 states, she was always longing for those old shop days, & now Mobile Yarn is a reality. Heidi is bringing her knowledge from yarn shops nationwide, (as well as lasting friendships & plans for future projects with some of the best yarn shop owners out there), plus a lifetime of experience & passion for Needlearts back to our not-so-little Port City, just for YOU. Join us for fun & community, learning & growing as an artist in your own rite, & we can all Nurture these beautiful arts in others so they can continue on to future generations.
