Open Road Celebration | Fri 8/28 & Sat 8/29

We have fabulous news...

It's been a very long 5 months, but the big day is almost here. Tomorrow (Friday, August 28th), Front Street will be open to traffic! 

We really appreciate everyone that has been trudging through rubble, dirt, and utter confusion these last few months for some yarny goodness - with access changing hourly, it was quite the adventure to get to us and our other downtown businesses. We also know that many of you haven't been able to visit because of the limited access and we can't wait to see you again!

The ribbon cutting ceremony to re-open our downtown's "Main St" is at 10:00 AM tomorrow, Friday 8/28, and you're invited to join us - the shop will open after the festivities for our Friday morning Open Knitting.

To thank you and celebrate the re-opening of our road, we'll have some specials in-store Friday & Saturday, plus a special event on Saturday. Details are below and we hope you can join us!

Thank you SO much!


Road Re-Opening Specials | Friday 8/28 and Saturday 8/29

Visit the shop to enjoy 20% OFF all in-stock:

Needles: including interchangeable sets.

Needle Cases: della q and Hiya Hiya.

ALL-DAY OPEN KNITTING | Saturday, August 29th (10AM - 3PM)

To celebrate the opening of Front Street, we're having an all-day Open Knitting on Saturday, August 29th. Join us all day, in the morning, in the afternoon, or anywhere in-between in the relaxing atmosphere of our store and stitch away on your Firefly Fibers project - sit, knit, socialize, and be inspired!

Vacation, Royal Kits & Unicorns

A friendly reminder... 

Our annual July vacation is only a couple days away and this year, because of the Front St. road construction, we'll be away a bit longer than normal. 

Firefly Fibers will be closed from Sunday, June 21st - Monday, July 6th.

The shop will be open regular business hours through Saturday, June 20th and when we return on Tuesday, July 7th.

Thank you for your understanding and support - we're looking forward to coming back renewed and refreshed for you in July!


A few new items have just arrived and there's still time to visit the shop for a project before we're away. And... a few of these are sure to find their way onto our needles while we're on break.
