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.

Long Thursdays at The Bay!

A little reminder that the VBYC hours have changed slightly: YOUR local yarn shop (the Fiber Arts Trendsetter in Acadiana) is now open until 8pm on Thursdays! Two extra hours on a week night to come relax, knit, crochet, and visit. As a trade-off, VBYC will be closed on Sundays.

Comes Autumntime!

It's here folks! The equinox has passed, and (although the temperatures aren't yet here) that means it's high time to start focusing on Christmas gifts and such -- for yourself and for all your special people. Three months is plenty of time to complete several smaller projects, and some larger projects too! VBYC is ready with the supplies you need to complete your holiday gift list. Your gift list might also include non-project items too: shawl sticks, bags, notions, books.... Browse the selection of items from Namaste, Amy Butler, and Hadaki! And of course there's the stocking stuffer that's always appreciated by all fiber fans: the VBYC gift certificate! Not a knitter or crocheter? It's time NOW to place custom garment orders for Christmas. Let us assist you in selecting the perfect design and finding the best fiber! A handmade garment from Vermilion Bay is a unique, one-of-a-kind gift as special as the one who receives it!

Schedule Change. Sunday Tea takes a Hiatus

Last week was the last scheduled Sunday Tea. As a trade-off, The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company will open an extra two hours on Thursday nights starting on Thursday, September 29th. Although I wish I could maintain the 7 days/week schedule in order for VBYC to be available to you every day of every week as it has been, such a schedule is unbelievably exhausting, and leaves me with very little time for myself to re-energize and re-charge. Although our Sunday Tea offered you an extra day of visiting VBYC, my being able to have a Holy Day of Obligation each week will enable me to serve you even better Monday-Saturday! We'll see you today at VBYC!

The Newsletter Has Been Sent!

Great news! Newsletters! I've just sent out the final copies of the September Vermilion Bay Light, so you should all have yours in your email inboxes right now. So, let this be the plan for today: open your newsletter, make a list of all the fabulousness you need to start your fall and winter projects, and hurry on over to VBYC! This morning on Facebook, I posted a thank you note to all of you for your business, and I'll repeat that same thank you here. I very much appreciate your patronage and support, and I hope that you continue that support. Your valued business is what keeps our doors open and what keeps you supplied with the finest fibers and supplies in Acadiana for all your fiber projects. We'll see you today at VBYC!
