Begin with yarn and two sticks . . . make a scarf.  A hook and thread . . . create an afghan.  A cloud of wool and a spindle . . . spin a skein of yarn.  At Yarnia, we know that making is important.  The act of creating can take the stress out of a busy day, and shows love in a way that is tangible.  The things we make by hand are imbued with a sense of history a sense of humanity that a store-bought item can never match.  Yarnia brings you the best yarns, tools, and fibers to help speed you on your making journey.

Any maker will tell you that you learn something new with every project, no matter how experienced you are.  Making is all about experimenting and learning whether it’s learning a new craft, a new technique, or a new stitch.  Just as using the right tools makes your craft more enjoyable, learning the right skills allows you to enjoy what you are creating without getting frustrated! Whether you are a brand-new crocheter, or an experienced knitter, Yarnia has the perfect class for you to help build your skills.  Let our experienced teachers help take your craft to the next level.

Plus I had knit sweaters for her two younger sisters. That made her the perfect candidate for a new winter sweater (it’s always other knitters who appreciate our hand-knits the most!). Two years ago, when we were on a trip to see her new college, we…

We’ve moved!

After three years in our space on Valley Road, we’ve moved to Watchung Plaza! We loved our old space, and it was perfect for Yarnia to get started in. Back when we moved in there, we were just getting started from scratch—buying inventory for the first time, just figuring out all of our sales and online systems…and wondering if a yarn store could make it in Montclair. Starting a business is…
