Everybody who contacts us will feel that they have the ability to let their creative side sing. At Yarns on Pakington we work hard to match your skills with the best possible yarns, tools and patterns so you can produce an item you can be proud of because we’ll be proud of you too.
I’ve been a knitter and crocheter and hand spinner for decades, and I’m constantly learning new techniques and refining my skills. I cannot wait to share the feeling of accomplishment when you’ve finished your project.
I love talking about yarns, reading pattern books, and practicing new techniques. At the shop on Pakington street you’ll see finished projects, works in progress, and lots of inspiration.
Come prepared to knit or crochet at our worktable and meet other crafty people to chat. Book in to join classes on various subjects related to knitting or crochet. Or just come to browse our beautiful yarns and spectacular selection of needles and accessories.

Classes and Community

Crafting is the act of working with your hands and brain, which many people say brings about a calmness almost a meditative state taking away the stresses of the world and giving purpose to their free time. Crafting together works to bridge
across cultural, educational and economic barriers so that everyone at
the table has a voice and something to share. Yarns on Pakington
offers craft mornings/evenings for knitting/crochet or other craft
enjoyment and classes to improve skills, learn a new method or work on a
specific project. Stay tuned for further details on classes and general
