There is great satisfaction to be had from creating your own wardrobe, knitting sweaters for loved ones or mastering a new pattern. The following knit and sew shops have great yarn and fabric selections, helpful classes and host friendly events.
Choose from any color and every weight imaginable at Yarn Garden on Hawthorne, where skeins line three rooms from floor to ceiling.
If you find your knitted socks more resemble scarves, your knitted hats look like pot holders or if your friends plead with you to stop making them one-armed scratchy sweaters for Christmas, attend one of Knit Purl's private one-on-one knitting lessons.
The fabric selection at Bolt is classy, modern, and hip. The contemporary sewing patterns, such as laptop bags, is a nice touch.
Cancel your Wednesday evening plans, and kick up your heels and get your knitting needles clinkin' with Close Knit's Open Knit night from six to nine.
Much more than a yarn store, Twisted is a yarn community. Offering classes, clubs and regularly hosting events, Twisted is always brimming and humming with knitters with sticks in hand.
Sew Po offers options for the modern seamstress with modern tastes. This is not your grandmother's sewing shop.
Become the master of every facet of your knitting experience by creating your own yarn at Yarnia. Choose the color, thickness and fiber then buy it by the pound.
