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.

Knit Cafe and Sunday Tea

Knit Cafe is the weekly evening get-together for fiber folks at The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company, YOUR local yarn shop. If you haven't been frequenting the Knit Cafe evening in a while, be sure to pencil in the time in your date book under "weekly events". With the warm weather upon us, it's easy to forget things like this that happen with regularity. Re-connect with old friends and meet new ones at Knit Cafe. One of the things that makes our Tuesday evenings here in the shop so enjoyable is the extremely diverse mixture of folks who come, folks from all over Acadiana, folks who do interesting things, folks from all walks of life. VBYC is a place of inclusion, and Knit Cafe exemplifies that. Take advantage of the long shop day on Tuesdays! Start participating each week, or put Knit Cafe back on your schedule! Sunday Tea is our other special opening time: each Sunday from 1pm-5pm VBYC is open for you to come in, sit, visit, work your project, or receive assistance with anything you need. Tea is a perfect "lazy Sunday" afternoon activity to relax. It's so easy to take life's little treasures like these for granted, that these things will "always be there". VBYC is YOUR local yarn shop, and, as I say, YOU make VBYC what it is. Knit Cafe and Sunday Tea are activities designed for YOU, activities YOU enjoy! Come join us! Folks who come to Knit Cafe and/or Sunday Tea aren't yoked with an obligation to bring food or pay a fee. If you'd like to bring a snack to share, do it. If that's not your thing, bring your fabulous smile and friendly outlook and share those. It's always a great pleasure to see you at Vermilion Bay Yarn, YOUR local yarn shop!
