Downtown Yarns

In 2001, Rita Bobry decided to close her flower shop and turn her crafting hobby into a profession. Her cozy neighborhood knittery stocks needles, patterns and a multitude of coveted, hard-to-find knitting brands such as Debbie Bliss, Brown Sheep and Frabjous Fibers, as well as Frankie, Bobry’s golden retriever. But Bobry is most proud of her impressive selection of locally made fair-trade options. The laid-back hangout also offers two-week beginner crochet classes ($50), lace knitting ($50), hats for beginners ($50) and much more.
