Yarnbyrds: A Gourmet Yarn Truck

My son-in-law James saw a story about a yarn store on wheels.  Here’s the  clip on Columbus television.  YARNBYRDS,LLC THE YARN TRUCK

James knows I like to knit and enjoy good yarn so this morning he sent me a link from the local paper aticle about Yarnbyrds Columbus Dispatch.

A converted RV is a yarn store?  I’m in!

The Food Truck craze has inspired a gourmet Yarn Truck. What a wonderful idea.

Found the phone number and called Robin and this evening I was able to go and visit “Birdie” ( the mobile yarn store’s nickname) and make some wonderful gourmet yarn purchases, too.

Here’s Yarnbirds website for details on the delicious yarn and a calendar of where Birdie will be parked, so you can check it out, too!  A terrific selection to choose from- I know I’ll be back.


What a cool idea.  Here is the owner/ proprietor Robin Richey.

Robin’s husband Tom did all the LED lighting in the truck and so all the yarn shows in true color which is really important in a yarn store!  He’s an electrical engineer.

Robin creates the project bags. There’s jewelry and Drunk Yarn kits for dying.

  1. What a brilliant idea, there aren’t very many yarn shops around here and if you live in the country it would be difficult to get what you want.

    • Instead of waiting in s brick snd mortar shop for people to come, she can travel to them. So smart! She has lovely yarn.

  2. Such a creative idea! A yarn truck! Who knew such a place existed? The yarn in this truck looks gorgeous.

  3. I love this concept! When I was growing up in a rural area, the library bookmobile came around and it was an exciting day. I can just see the yarnmobile generating the same enthusiasm.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
