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.

Rowan for spring!

The new colors of Rowan have arrived. A sea of vibrant and demure, solid and varigated to renew your wardrobe this season. Pair these terrific new materials with peerless pattern support, and you'll be ready for warm weather knitting and crochet. New colors of Revive, Handknit Cotton, and Summer Tweed await your eye. Also, you will be most interested in new yarns from Rowan this season: Summerspun and Creative Linen, both colorful, light-weight worsted yarns. Also, you'll fall in love with Savannah, a mildly textured yarn that will add interest to your fabric! A smash hit from Rowan this spring is the new Kidsilk Stripe: a varigated version of the already-megapopular Kidsilk Haze. Download one of the free patterns from knitrowan.com and get started on an exciting, instant color adventure. Design expert Kaffe Fasset has combined shades from his magic color wheel to produce colorways of remarkable beauty. The regular solid Kidsilk Haze still proves to be a winner in all seasons. VBYC has the colors you need for single-shade pieces as well as the more flamboyant multi-color wraps, scarves and garments we're all making these days. And if that weren't enough, Rowan has seduced us with a limited edition format of Kidsilk Haze: Kidsilk Creation, an ultra posh silk/mohair net which forms the base of an exquisite ruffly scarf knittable in 45 minutes! Besides the Magazine 51, browse the selection of other new pattern books from Rowan, including Rowan Lace, Seascapes, Little Rowan, Holiday Crochet, Summer Crochet, and a bright new book for children, toddlers, and babies: Little Rowan. Rowan for spring!
