George Carlin

One of my favorite comedians died Sunday of a heart attack at age 71. If you have ever enjoyed or agreed with George Carlin's comedy, you will know we lost a great one. Sarcastic NY humor will never be the same.

Maybe you want to learn to do it yourself? We can help you!

Stitch Markers

Our stitch markers are made from many different beads, glass, wood, pearl or metal, and can come with or without charms. They come in gold or silver metals, and can be used with any size needle. That's because each marker uses a split ring to change the sizes! As easy as taking your keys from your key ring.


We carry a good range of fibers here at STRINGS. Alpaca, Llama, Wool, Silk, and Cotton are all available. Fibers are sold by the oz so you can try out new fibers without a large investment. The alpaca in fawn and black are from Our own animals. Other fibers are fleeces grown right here in the USA. Any fiber shown here can be custom spun into yarn. It can also be dyed any of the colors we carry, or blended with any other fiber in stock. Be sure to Contact Us so we can give you exactly what you need.
