About

 

A Flyin’ Skein is a yarn shop in Seward, AK owned by Cindy Clark. Affectionately known as “The Yarn Lady” in her hometown of Seward, Cindy Clark enjoys building relationships with folks who visit her store, which she opened in August 2007. Cindy is passionate about teaching and encouraging others to discover hidden skills. Her talent began at age 9 when she learned to crochet. At 14, she taught herself to knit. In the years that followed, Cindy added to her repertoire: hairpin lace, broomstick lace, macrame’, counted cross stitch, quilting and spinning. She continues to build her talents in Tunisian crochet, Brioche knitting, Fair Isle knitting, tatting, weaving and having acquired a Circular Sock Knitting machine, is working to master it. Her background as an electro-mechanical engineering technician equips her with an ability to see knitting 3-dimensionally. But, most importantly, Cindy finds true blessings in the kinship with fellow crafters.

I really hate to have to do this but....
Fi-brrs, aka knit til 9, is cancelled tonight.
I have the crud 😩 and do not want to share with anyone 😇.
This is also why we've had signs on the door and the guy with the beard, aka my Hubby, has been covering the store.
I don't know when I'll be back but, it won't be until I'm over this completely. Still not sharing😁
Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Sorry to hear that. Will hubby be running the store today?

So sorry to hear you are sick. Stay home & get completely over it, winter is just around the corner.

Get well soon!

❤️🙏🏻 for speedy healing Cindy.

Healing thoughts and prayers!

Bummer, get well 😕

Thank you for your prayers and support, love you gals😍😍😍

I hope you feel better soon, Cindy Clark

Still down, hoping to be on the mend, but I'm not getting the feeling that it is looming large😳 Thanks for all the good wishes, could you wish a little harder though, they aren't working yet🤔

You have GOT to feel better soon!

Cindy and Duchess are beautiful!!!

Seal points always very helpful

Shop cats are very important, I don't know how I ever worked without one.

Hello A Flyin Skein from New Zealand! Had a great time in your wonderful little yarn shop when our cruise came into Seward in June of this year. You saved my life! I love cruising; but I also like something to do with my hands of an evening, so I was desperately hoping to find a yarn store when we reached Seward; and there you were! I walked past a couple of times and you were busy sorting out the store prior to opening, you saw me look in for the second or third time and told me to come in. What a treat awaited me! You have a great choice of yarns; and for the rest of our journey I was kept busy, completing a knee warmer for when we returned to our New Zealand winter. Thanks again, hope to be back!

Cindy Clark I never heard of knee warmers. Looked on Pinterest and sure enough - found 'em! There are times when my knees would welcome a warmer! Sound like a new class for the winter, eh?

Oh, I thought the cat was the knee warmer! LOL

Duchess looks like my Pye---how dare you get a shop cat after I leave town?!
