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.

Road Construction on Verot School Road

It's not news by now that Verot School Road is being resurfaced.  This is actually not a problem, and it's work that is long overdue.  Luckily this construction does not have to impact your access to the shopping center where we are located.  Here're the alternative routes to the shop via Digby:

From Kaliste Saloom, turn onto the Camillia extension toward Verot.  Turn right onto Blue Bird (the last street before the Verot intersection).  Keep straight on Blue Bird, then turn left onto Digby directly in front of Comeaux High School.  There is an entrance to the Bridge Plaza property from Digby. 

You may also turn onto Marshall from Kaliste Saloom and circle around Comeaux High School to Digby.

From Ambassador Caffery, turn at the light as if going to Lourdes Hospital. This road will bring you to Comeaux High School as well (you'll drive through the parking lot of the baseball diamond by the Comeaux Rec Center). 

We'll see you soon!

Driveway is Free and Clear!

If you've been having doubts about access into the Bridge Plaza shopping center where we're located, this important news: THE TEMPORARY SEWER LINE SPEED BUMP IS GONE! Last Friday, with joint efforts of me and the management staff at the office , we were able to have the contraption removed, and the pipes re-routed through the culvert (which had been installed a few years ago) beneath the drive. The parking lot is now fully accessible from Verot School Road! Also, Bette at the office has informed me today that the work that's been going on near the Digby entrance to the property has been completed and that entrance will be opened in the next few days. Stop in today! It's spring and there's a lot new to see!
