A Blacksburg yarn shop opened in Piccadilly Square in Roanoke this week.
Mosaic Yarn, has been a full-service knitting and crocheting shop for 10 years in Blacksburg at the Bonomo’s Plaza, said owner, Gina Bonomo.
Mosaic Yarn moved into the former, Wyrd Sisters yard shop, storefront. I wrote about Wyrd Sister’s store closing here.
The store will offer knitting and crocheting classes and support for those wanting to learn, Bonomo says. The store will also sell different materials for fiber art.
Bonomo says her mother, who is the owner of Bonomos women’s clothing store in Blacksburg, had a shop in Picadilly Square years ago. She also remembers buying yarn from a knitting shop in the same shopping center when she was a teenager. She said the new store “feels like family.”
She’s seen an increase in people interested in learning to knit, sew and crochet.
“Since everything is so technological now, I think people enjoy a hobby like this,” she said. “It’s just something special about making your own garment.”
The store will be open seven days a week.
10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday
10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturdays
1 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays
