How to Support Our Local Yarn Store for $5 a Month
you love us, and we love you. everyone loves yarn!
Times are tough; we all feel it. We worry about ourselves, our community, our favorite places. We join together to support each other locally, regionally, and virtually.
In times of darkness and uncertainty, fear is a huge player in our decisions. But fear is a jerk and a big fat lier. That guy doesn’t play fair at all!
Our Hearts On Fiber family, made up of literally our family, choose to meet uncertainty with innovation and creativity.

a new kind of membership plan
I’m sure you have signed up for a subscription or had a membership to something you thought you needed at some time in your life. If not, good for you! I find that I waste money and time feeling the pressure of not going to that gym, or not taking advantage of that app that tracks what I eat and how much water I drink. Blah!
When we started a Subscription Box in January 2019, we learned a lot about ourselves and business. We put time and effort into the Box, which ended up costing us money. While the Box itself was reasonable, we didn’t calculate the amount of time each of us spent to create this Box. Our Subscription Box gave us recurring revenue, but as we grew, we couldn’t find a way to scale. So we shifted.
Subscription and membership models are essential to cash flow. Recurring income can make or break you. We knew we needed that avenue of revenue, but how do we make it scaleable? What do we think our customers would like?

What if I don’t like any Little Stubbies in stock?
But there’s so many of them! If you really don’t like any you can always talk to us and see what is coming up next for colorways. Maybe the exact color you want is getting ready to be dyed? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
