A knitting, yarn and craft shop, Seaside Yarn and Fiber brings a much-needed creative outlet to the coastal community. “Not only is knitting an excellent way to reduce stress and relax,” says owner/manager, Allie Kloster, “it’s also a perfectly portable option for crafting on the go! So our hope is that whether you’re looking for a weekend project for your next road trip, or planning out your next epic knit creation, that you stop by and share your excitement with us!” Seaside Yarn and Fiber will focus on community-building by offering a free Knit Night, plus a rotating selection of all-ages knitting and crafting classes, such as Knitting 101, Needlefelt Miniatures and DIY Parties. And if you can’t make it to a class but still want to hang out and unwind for a bit? Kloster says, “There is a comfy seating area in the shop, crafters are always welcome to stop in and work on their projects. Part of the fun really is, seeing everyone’s creativity!”
