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.
Is Now Slow-Down
Thursday AND Sunday!
Starting March 3rd, Artisán Knitworks will host two Slow-Downs each week.
We’ve added a Sunday Slow-Down. It starts at 1:00 (although you are encouraged to show up a bit earlier if you'd like). This Slow-Down continues until we close at 5:30.
During the first half the Sunday Slow-Down, will offer learn-to-knit lessons and the second half will focus on learning crochet. While there is no charge for the Slow-Down, there may be a nominal charge for lessons.
Thursday night session run from 5:30 or so until we decide to leave. Come when you can. Leave when and if you must!
There will be snacks and Larry’s wonderful coffee. You can bring wine, if you’d like. (Zou Zou's is next door and has good food).
The idea of all this is to step out of our lives and focus on our hands, our craft, and not on computer screens, to inhabit the moment. Maybe you can finish a gift. Or maybe you can just sit there!
