JP Knit & Stitch Yarn Wall

As promised, some photos of the yarn wall build out. Here is the bare wall with just the tape to indicate where the yarn cubbies are going.

The yarn wall with the vertical slats installed. Each jut out along the wall creates a discrete yarn alcove. In each alcove is a countertop along one side. Here you can lay out multiple skeins of yarn, open a pattern book, or just put your bag down while you shop. Our goal throughout the store was to create a beautiful but also functional space to browse yarn and fabric.

Imagine these cubbies stocked full of a rainbow of colors and textures and fibers!
