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.

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.

New Yarns arriving this week!

Mid season spring and summer yarns have started to arrive! Four new colors of Rowan Revive are in the bins now -- the awesome recycled silk/cotton blend that folks have been raving about. What to use it for? Anything you like. Revive has become spring/summer shells, shrugs, wraps, all-seasons cowels, tanks, you name it! Recycled silk and cotton make for a unique tweed effect in the fabric, creating a garment that's unbelievably easy to match with other items in your wardrobe. It's all about the texture and the color interest, and Revive has both! Linen fans love Rowan Lenpur Linen. Three new colors in the bin now! This yarn has the feel of worked linen, but with a brilliant sheen. It's a classy yarn and makes up into ultra classy garments. It's a breathable, soft fabric you'll love to have next to your skin in our Louisiana humidity. Coming in this week from Plymouth: Grass and Vita. More colors are now available in these two wonderful yarns recently introduced by the Plymouth company. Grass is a cotton/hemp blend that produces and lightweight tweedy/heathered fabric that you'll need to be wearing this season! Grass has a rugged look, but attractive colorways and amazing softness. And then there's Vita. It's a recycled fiber yarn -- cotton and cashmere. The look of cotton, the deliciousness of cashmere. More colors are now available in this fine yarn as well. Both were introduced pre-season and both found homes quite quickly. These yarns are so lucious, it's almost a shame to use them just for a hat. Indulge yourself or someone you love this season and make a significant garment. There are plenty of simple designs available at VBYC that will showcase these tremendous fabrics, yet are quick and easy to create. Stop in and let us help you find just the right pattern and fiber for a garment you'll love to make and love to wear! Remember: Mother's Day is May 8th. A garment supply of any of these yarns makes a fantastic gift!
