About us

Concepts in Yarn & Needlepoint has been in business since 1984, selling yarns and teaching classes in knitting, crocheting, sweater design, finishing and needlepoint.  In our 1200 square foot shop we strive to provide our customers with the best service, the finest yarns, informative classes, interesting workshops, exciting trunk shows, and an inviting place for all to come and stitch. Our services range from helping you find that elusive skein of yarn you might need to finish your project or find designs from books or pictures you may have seen, and just about anything else you can think of when it comes to knitting, crochet or needlepoint.

Our in-house designers are waiting to help you create any knitted garment you can dream up.  Just bring us a picture or drawing and we can make it into a pattern.  Concepts In Yarn and Needlepoint  offers an extensive collection of books and accessories to help you complete your projects.  We offer gift cards if you can’t figure out what to buy for that favorite knitter of yours.

For your needlepoint needs, Concepts In Yarn & Needlepointstocks a large selection of hand-painted canvases from leading canvas artists. If you don’t see what you like from our stock, we can special order just the right canvas for you. If you have something very special in mind, our canvas designer can make a custom canvas from any picture you bring us.  Our expert instructors will guide you through your project with fiber selection, charting and classes.

Your purchases are eligible for points in our Frequent Buyer Program, which results in purchase discounts.

We’d like you to think of us as YOUR local yarn shop.  Stop in any time and sit and stitch with us!
