What is indie yarn? Indie yarn is produced in small batches by hand, usually by one or two people. It is produced by an indie dyer, or someone who creates yarn independently and is not a part of a large commercial company. Each skein is unique and may vary between batches.

If that does fill up there will be facility employees to direct you where you may park along the road leading up to the club house. We do encourage you to carpool with friends to ensure there’s plenty of room for everyone, including those not attending our event and because it’s more fun!

There is also a Panera Bread nearby and a Starbucks in each direction, one at Aurora Village and one at Ballinger Village.
