Thank you all so much!!!

The raffle was a HUGE success! We raised over $2500 for humanitarian relief for people in Ukraine, and the Canadian government matched our donations, for a total raised of over $5000. Winners should all have been notified by now, and we can confirm that Yarnivore peeps won some of the prizes!

Thank you all so much!

Private Lessons
In-store and online private lessons are available! Please call 210-979-8255 to schedule a lesson! Wendy, Dawn, Moses, and Nancy M. are all available to help you with your projects! Private Lessons can be scheduled outside of regular hours at the discretion of the teacher.

The Tip Jar

Found the right color of yarn, but it's the wrong size? You need worsted and can only find fingering-weight in that color? You can hold multiple strands together to get gauge! It's not always a perfect solution, but it can help a lot when you really have to have that perfect color!

Here's a guide on the Orcas Island Knitting blog.

 All regular classes are currently on hold until we can safely seat up to 6 students in the classroom. We'll let y'all know when we can offer them again. Until then, we're offering most of our class material in private lessons.
