Classes


Beginning Knitting and Crochet: Beginning classes for knitting and crochet are scheduled one-on-one at your convenience during business hours. You may schedule lessons just for yourself, or for yourself and a few other friends. In beginning knitting, you will learn your stitches while you create a beautiful chunky yarn scarf. At the end of your mastery period, you'll have a fabulous accent you can actually use!

Classes a la carte: If you weren't able to attend a specific class, or you missed out entirely on one, here's your chance! Simply schedule the class topic of your choice at the time that's convenient for you.

How Much Do Classes Cost? At Vermilion Bay Yarn, we're all about getting you moving on your fiber projects and getting you going with new techniques. All classes (including beginning knitting and crochet) at VBYC are $20 plus materials. You do not pay each time you come in to continue the same class.

What's Available At Vermilion Bay

The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company is your local source for the fine yarns of Rowan, Classic Elite, South West Trading, Cascade, Plymouth, Schaefer, Malabrigo, Muench, GGH, Brown Sheep, Lana Grossa, Tilli Tomas, Universal, and many others! We offer high quality needles and hooks from Addi, Chiaogoo, Hiya-Hiya, and Brittany. Vermilion Bay Yarn (YOUR local yarn shop) is YOUR one stop for all your knitting and crochet notion needs: counters, holders, markers, darning eggs, tapestry needles, etc.

Knit Cafe: The Evening Fiber Art Group meets on Tuesdays from 6pm-8pm at the shop. Bring your project(s) and sit for as long as you like. Food, coffee, and soft drinks are always provided, and everyone is encouraged to add to the buffet.

Need something repaired? Favorite sweater with moth holes? Heirloom lace with a snag? Bring it in for an estimate.

Don't have time to knit or crochet it? The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company is your only local custom fiber art source! Please visit the shop for an estimate.

Knitting Parties at VBYC: Gather together 10 of your friends or colleagues and set a date/time for a knitting party at Vermilion Bay Yarn! Beginners and seasoned knitters can participate in the same party! Folks who've never knitted before will learn how and the experienced knitters work their own fun project! Contact the shop for details!

Our Return Policy

Now and then we purchase a bit too much, or decide that a different yarn might be better for a project than the one we selected. Here's how VBYC accomodates merchandise returns. This policy is also clearly displayed in the shop by the register. Thank you for your business!

Merchandise purchased at The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company may be exchanged/returned for shop credit only. No cash refunds. No exhanges/returns on special orders. Gift Certificates may not be redeemed for cash. Yarn presented for exchange must be odor-free and in new condition with the yarn band intact. Yarns wound into skeins are not accepted for exchange.

Knitting Rescue and Project Help

We are most willing to assist YOU, our customers, with quick help or to fix minor blemishes in your fiber work at no charge. As I see it, that's all part of what YOUR local yarn shop is about, especially if your project originated from VBYC. If you find yourself in need of frequent coaching on a particularly challenging project, or if you require detailed assistance with a project obtained elsewhere, we encourage you to make that project into a class ($20 fee applies) for the duration of your work.

Thanksgiving!

It's Thanksgiving week, and folks are on the move: leaving town to visit relatives and friends elsewhere, and folks coming into town to visit loved ones here. It's a busy week, that's for sure. In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company will be closed on Thursday, November 25th. But that's the only day this week we will be closed. The regular weekly schedule remains unchanged, including tonight's Knit Cafe from 6-8. VBYC, your local yarn shop, will re-open after the one-day Thanksgiving break on Friday, November 26th at 10:00am. Of course the most important part of a yarn shop is YOU. That's what makes VBYC what it is: this diverse mixture of unique people from all walks of life coming together in one place to share a common interest: the creation of terrific fiber items. In the process, we find out that we're not all so different from each other after all. Everyone adds a bit of themselves to the mixture and the result is an exciting and energetic melting pot of ideas. I am thankful to all of you for helping create such a place where ideas are shared openly where friends are made, relationships are forged, and where everyone can be themselves without fear of reprisal, judgement, or ridicule. In our cynical, crass, and caustic world, it's good to have an oasis to escape to where we can just "be". To everyone who frequents Knit Cafe, Men's Knit Club, Sunday Tea, and to all the folks who stop in every day throughout the day: Thank you so much. YOU are The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for providing the place, Jason. All I know is that when I leave your shop after sitting and knitting a while I feel so relaxed. The atmosphere is so soothing.
