the yarn storytelling

At The Yarn, we believe in the power of story to break down barriers, gain greater understanding of our neighbors and change hearts and minds. 

PAST SHOWS


THE YARN LAUNCH WEEK

On Saturday, September 30th, the Yarn officially launched at Loblolly Creamery in Little Rock, AR. Loblolly offered a special 'yarn cone," consisting of a delicious blend of green tea ice cream and raspberry flavors. Sally Mengel, owner of Loblolly, shared her story of the company's first attempts, while Emily Wernsdorfer from the Yarn team hosted a craft table where kids and adults were encouraged to 'share their truth' with yarn-adored pens and pencils. 

 

Outloud Storytelling 

South on Main
October 11, 2017        

Our third-annual Outloud Storytelling show on October 11th at South on Main was a fabulous success. Nine storytellers shared their stories of pain, joy, struggle and perseverance as a packed house cheered them on. Storytellers hailed from all walks of life but shared the stage and their lived experiences of living as LGBT Arkansans.
