On Wednesday, August 22, a treat awaits you – Helene from Oink Pigments will be in the shop with a fabulous trunk show of hand-dyed yarns and maybe some roving. We have had a modest supply of Oink productions in the shop ever since Chicago’s Yarn.Com Expo – but now you have a chance to meet her (she is one-half of the company) and make your own choices. For those who can’t be there by 5:00, we’ll try to get her to hang around until 6:00. Click the Oink to learn more about this wonderful stuff.
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.
