Our Story

Yarn It! is the realization of a dream. Cathy has been a knitter for more than 25 years and has daydreamed about opening a yarn store for about 15 of those years. It is not just a business but a passion (some might say an obsession). When she went to bed every night and woke up every morning thinking about knitting and found it hard to focus on her work because of thoughts about knitting, she knew it was time to take the leap from her day job to her dream job. After years of imagining the store and months of planning it in reality, Cathy opened Yarn It! in November 2017.

Despite all those years of knitting, Cathy feels she still has much to learn and is continually expanding her skills and taking on new knitting challenges.
