What we all have in common is our love of fiber and knitting. We’re also committed to making sure that our customers come away with the same love!

Joan has owned Yarns Unlimited for 22 years. She has the best stash in the world and always is knitting for one of her many grandchildren.

Anne is our artist in residence. She wears everything she knits with great style! Not only is she a prolific knitter, she draws, embroiders, paints and more and does it all fabulously!

Cathy has been knitting, sewing, embroidering and doing needlepoint since a teenager. A Flight Attendant in her past life, she tries (unsuccessfully, at times) to keep us all organized.

Dawne is the newest member of our family. A long time customer, we recently convinced her to come join our yarny doings. Not only is she a sweet lady and terrific knitter, she also has floral talent! Come in and say “hi” to our new recruit!

 Joanna is a terrific finisher and a sometimes obsessive knitter. In her spare time, she is a coxswain for local masters rowing teams. (PS-Ask her about knitting Barbie clothes!)

Kitty is a technical writer by training and trade. She is also an accomplished lace knitter. Ask to see what’s on her IPad that she’s planning to knit next!

Pam is the continental knitter among us. She is also an accomplished flutist. Not only does she teach Beginning Knitting, she has taught flute for years.

Rebecca our overachiever! She knits, designs, spins and dyes yarn. A student at a local divinity school, she is working on a special project that is due to be finished on Valentines’ Day 2013.

Sandy a lifelong knitter and seamstress-Sandy actually admits to having a huge stash! She also spins and weaves and occasionally takes part in Sheep to Shawl competitions. She has recently begun playing the harp.

We’re 30!!

Monday, September 28, 2015

This year marks the 30th year that Yarns Unlimited has been in business, so we decided that it’s party time!!  Our store started in 1985 in a small space behind a local travel agency, and has moved twice and grown a whole bunch in the intervening years.

Beginning October 2nd we are going to celebrate with several events that we’re rather excited about.  Check out the schedule on the “Events” page of this web site to see the specifics.

We’re having 2 trunk shows, Brooklyn Tweed and Shibui-

The Brooklyn Tweed show highlights the fact that we will have a limited supply of Shelter and Loft for sale-if you haven’t seen this yummy yarn, you really have to stop in and check it out.  Saturday, October 3rd will be “Brooklyn Tweed Day” here, so come in to see the yarn, patterns, and samples and enter to win a kit for a Brooklyn Tweed project.

Our Shibui trunk show will focus on their fall 2015 collection-and it is gorgeous. It will also coincide with the Shibui Mix party that we will have on Friday, October 9th from 6-8 PM.  We’ll get to play with Shibui yarns, mixing them together for fun results.

There will be snacks AND a raffle to win a Shibui project. Call or email to tell us that you want to come, as space is limited. (412-741-8894 or )

Bring a selection of needles with you for swatching!

Finally, on Saturday, October 10th, we’ll have our Anniversary Party. We’re inviting you, our loyal customers- to stop in for cake and a small token of thanks.

Happy 30th to us!!
