We value our customers and offer plenty of space to sit and knit and also for classes. The 3,000 square foot shop offers a large selection of popular yarns from the largest manufacturers and many hand-dyed and specialty yarns from smaller ones located around the world. We are willing to special order from any manufacturer that we now purchase from.
My name is Karen Cox, I purchased the shop in August of 2009. Our staff consists of several part time employees from various walks of life including a nurse, teachers, and a graduate student. Their expertise in knitting and crocheting allows them to help anyone who needs it. We offer complimentary assistance with minor instruction and private lessons for the bigger projects. We are a friendly bunch who love people, sharing, and watching you achieve your finished project.

I have been knitting since I was eight years old with an interest in most handcrafts. My dream was to purchase a yarn shop when I retired, which is several years away. The opportunity to purchase HYS came my way unexpectedly and I took that opportunity. We are working on our website and have finally been able to get purchasing started, so have a look at our products and find what you like! Thanks for caring enough about my shop to read this. We all look forward to your next visit.
