In the meantime, they're having some pretty good sales. I got like 15 skiens for under $30, including some Bernat cashmere for, a ton of the Bernat satin (that I used in my Drop Stitch scarf, in different colourways) for Christmas knitting and some "oddly" coloured wool blends (bright yellow, green) perfect for some toys I had planned.

My Michaels is also doing this. There's very little yarn to choose from, even less thread, and they've let their notions section go empty as well. Can't wait to see what they have in store (pun intended). They mostly carried acrylics so it would be nice to see some higher end brands in there just so we could have a choice. That would set them apart from the other craft stores.
I recently asked a clerk at Michaels about their yarn dept. and was told they are redesigning it and it should be open in May. I myself am looking forward to seeing what they are going to give us.
I live in Michigan, about 30 or so miles outside Detroit and a mile from Michaels.
They've been having these signs in the yarn dept. for a few months now, announcing their new yarn dept. It was suppose to be done by May and it is the middle of May now and I don't see ONE thing differant yet, so I wish they'd hurry!
But I like Michaels. The yarn dept is at least 3 or 4 isles big and they have all differant kinds of yarn already........wool, acrilyic, swede, silk, hemp etc and I'm sure it's all a lot cheaper than the lys.

It won't take that long to create a new yarn section Suziblues. All they have to do is wait till the truck arrives, schedule some poor sods to work the freight shift that starts at 4 a.m. to unload the truck, schedule more poor sods to work 8 or 9 hours shifts where all they do is move everything, open boxes, place yarn in the new section, and they're done (all of this usually takes no more than a day to two to do). My guess is the new yarn won't get there till the end of April and be set up by the beginning of May. What that yarn consists of remains to be seen.
