Adirondack Fibers and Yarn Shop in Long Lake, NY

Just in time for Adirondack Quilt Camp it’s time to open the window on Adirondack Fibers and Yarn Shop located on Adams Park Way off of Kickerville Road.  Hey, you never know what you’ll discover in Long Lake, NY!  


“If you’re anything like me when you have an idea for a project you want to do it RIGHT NOW!! I don’t want to have to wait until the weekend when I can get somewhere that sells the stuff I need, I want to start (and usually finish) it in that moment. Over the winter I picked up crocheting again after a few years hiatus. I had some yarn laying around to make hats out of, I borrowed yarn from friends and eventually had to get out of town to buy more yarn. Little did I know I didn’t even have to leave Long Lake to get material, we have our own yarn and fiber store right here in town! 


Adirondack Yarn and Fibers is located on 48A Adams Park Way, just off of Kickerville Rd, and it has IT ALL! You want to crochet? You got it! You want to knit? You got it. You want to weave or even make your own yarn? You can do all of that. 


Donna Adams is an avid knitter, crocheter and weaver who not only sells yarn, but made her own yarn (and it’s for sale) from sheep she used to have on her 36 acre farm. Although they no longer keep the animals they used to have she has plenty of wool and yard that she spun and dyed herself. The wool she has for sale is 50% wool from her sheep, 50% alpaca from the former farm in North Creek and 100% Adirondack! It’s very soft and comes in some amazing colors. In addition to these beautiful yarns she sells she makes any number of articles of clothing, one of my favorites is called a chill-chaser, and when time permits teaches all of these skills. 


Not to be outdone her husband, Bob Adams is an equally amazing artist. His carpentry skills are top-notch. The table and the beautiful cabinet that are in the yarn and fiber store were made by Bob right there at the farm. Make sure you ask Donna to roll back the protective placemats to see the table, it’s worth a look. In addition to the furniture Bob has made he has also made a lot of the products that Donna sells in the store. There are looms of various sizes for the beginner weaver to the experienced weaver. Knitting and crochet needles, as well as drop spindles that are tole painted by Donna herself, are also hand made by Bob, and can be purchased right there at the store. Everything you need for your next project is available at the store. 


I love crocheting and all of the things that go along with it but the thing that will make me want to go back over and over is the greeter, Cosmo. Going to a craft store is awesome enough but add this handsome dogger into the mix and it’s just about perfect! I wouldn’t mind sitting on the porch crocheting the day away with his handsome face! 


If you’re looking to stop up to the store her hours are Thursday through Sunday 11am – 4pm in the summer and by appointment in the winter. She also will take orders if you’re just looking for something handmade. You should never have to leave town again to get your craft on!”

Long Lake is OPEN! No extra water here!

With the recent onslaught of Hurricane Irene wreaking havoc with our region and the continuation of rains from Hurricane Leigh/Lee (call the fact checkers) – it would certainly seem the Adirondacks are struggling. Long Lake extends a huge branch of “hang in there” to our neighbors in Keene, Keene Valley, all along the Ausable, our friends in Warren County, south of us in Binghamton and Vermont struggling with their clean up and rising waters. Those communities got hit hard by Irene and Long Lake knows the surprise, shock and amount of work it is to rise up after a disaster – check for flooding Long Lake (spring 2011). Hang in there our neighbors, our hearts are with you.

But with news about flooding in our region, so comes rumors and questions. There’s a rampant rumor spreading that an imaginary lock has been put on the imaginary gate into the Adirondack Park. Just to clarify, there are not gates to the Adirondack Park, there are no toll booths and the blue line is a map demarcation and chances are you won’t actually see a blue line when crossing into the park (as far as I know)

Long Lake and Raquette Lake are here and open.

Long Lake Clouds

This weekend presents the 90 Miler Adirondack Canoe Classic sponsored by the Adirondack Watershed Alliance. Over 600 paddlers are registered. The race kicks of on Friday morning, September 9th in Old Forge.

Saturday the event takes off from Endion in Long Lake. Paddlers hit the course at 8:30am. Spectators are welcome to view the race from the Long Lake Town Bridge as they paddle north towards Tupper Lake. It’s a glorious sight to see these paddlers as they wend their way down the widening of the Raquette River. Organizer Brian McDonald anticipates with the volume of water in the lakes and rivers that it will be a record breaking race year.

Best small town moment of the week. Meeting two paddlers from Michigan stopping at the Long Lake Town Beach who saw event organizer Brian McDonnell picking up the big orange buoys (borrowed from the Adirondack Museum) from the Town of Long Lake – if anything this event is collaborative and partners from all across the North Country help out to welcome the paddlers to our region. The couple from Michigan stopped to say hi to Brian and report they had arrived from the west and they were looking forward to the race. We’re thrilled to be part of such a far–reaching event that invites folks from all over the country and the world to our beautiful region.

Also this weekend is the Adirondack Museum Rustic Furniture Fair. Enjoy the museum’s fantastic collection of artifacts and history, and the A.F. Tait exhibit. Step outside to experience a world class event not to be missed. Rustic Furniture makers from across the country descend on Blue Mt. Lake and the Adirondack Museum to showcase their work and sell it to guests. These artisans are exclusively selected and display their handcrafted rustic pieces on the museum campus.

If that’s not enough for you, check out Newcomb’s Teddy Roosevelt Weekend chock full of events galore celebrating the historic ride by Teddy Roosevelt from the heights of Mount Marcy to become President of the United States.

And don’t forget to make Long Lake your central location for dining and lodging. Long Lake is in a great central location to explore the Adirondacks and enjoy these events in area towns. Great restaurants, beautiful views, a lake, hey we even have an airport (okay, a seaplane base) but it’s an airport to us. Have your own seaplane? Fly in, or fly over to see the paddlers on the race to Saranac Lake!

Here comes the plane from the LL Airport

See you in Long Lake this weekend! We’re open in the Heart of the Adirondacks and the weather looks great!
