We now offer three great times to come in, sit down, and knit or crochet your troubles away. Wednesday (from about 3:30 until we close at 6:30), Thursday (5:00 to about 8:30) and Sunday starting at 1:00. Even if you have just a few minutes to spend, come on in and join the fun!
At Artisán Knitworks we all share the same goal: to make our place the friendliest, most welcoming yarn shop around.
Whether you are an absolute beginner or have been at it for decades, our sofa is your sofa -- our coffee is your coffee. If we're open, you're welcome to come in and knit, crochet, spin or just hide from the world for a bit.
It's that simple.
We're much more than a yarn store. We strive to be a place that celebrates the world of fiber arts. It is a place where knitters, crocheters and spinners can find refuge and inspiration.
The Yarns We Carry …
We won't carry just anything. But, we can't carry everything. So, we carefully select the yarns we offer. Whether hand-crafted or mill-made, luxurious or value-priced, one word describes every yarn we carry: quality.
Life Is Too Short...
for lackluster yarn. Or, for that matter, yarns made by companies that exploit the folks who work for them or damage the environment. The same goes for things like needles, sundries (a wonderful word), knitting bags, and wearables.

The Grand Tour
We are a Knit Michigan
We are pleased to be a Knit Michigan Collection Center. Knit Michigan has been collecting and distributing comfort items to cancer patients since 2006. Items include chemo caps, blankets and pillows for the infusion rooms, Knitted Knockers, and other items that can be found on the non-profit's website.
Here's how you can help: Knit or crochet a chemo cap or Knitted Knockers (breast prostheses) or make pillows and fleece blankets for the infusion room. Patterns and instructions are free and can be found at www.knitmichigan.org. When they are done, bring them in to the store and we will help you tag them, after which they will be sent to Knit Michigan and distributed to cancer units around the state. If you have a question about what yams are best to use for chemo caps, ask us, or look for the shelf tag identifying the chemo cap friendly yam. Knitted Knockers™ need to be made from very specific yams; check the pattern on Ravelry for details.
