From the Owner

Kris Murphy


Thank you for visiting us! I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an aunt and a grandaunt, I am also a lover of yarn/fibers and what can be made from them. 

I learned how to cross stitch and embroidery from my mother rug hooking and crocheting from my grandmother starting at the age of 9. I still practice most of these crafts today, which puts it well over 30 years. That does not mean I consider myself an expert in any of these fields, just knowledgeable.

My favorite thing about these fiber crafts is, one, the challenge of new techniques and fibers. Two, helping others learn the various crafts or how to improve their techniques, and three, being able to gift hand crafted items.

Lone Star Yarn:
This store is a dream come true for me. I never knew of hand dyed yarns nor the different fibers available until late 2019. That’s when I started my search for Local Specialty Yarn Stores. The only ones I found were either in Dallas or in Ft Worth. So, I wanted to open one here in the Bedford area.

Lone Star Yarn is fashion for the use of Fiber enthusiast. Here you will find quality yarns, patterns, equipment, novelty items, friendships, and support. Anyone and everyone are welcome to come in sit a spell, have something to drink, chat, get advice or even take a class. We have space to showcase your finished products, and even offer consignment sales at an 80/20 split. 80% going to the creator.

So welcome and to your new Local Yarn Store, and we look forward to making your time here as enjoyable as the fibers you will find here.
