THE FLYING PIG YARN SHOP is designed to be a creative haven and gathering place for knitters and crocheters of all levels.  Our quest to bring in beautiful, off-the-beaten-path yarns is never ending and our weekly knitting groups and monthly pot-lucks are as much about making friends as they are about making sweaters, scarves and mittens.

You can always find something new at The Flying Pig – new yarns, new friends, new lessons and, of course, new flying pigs.

2016 was a great year here at the Flying Pig. We expanded our store, added some beautiful new yarns and, more importantly, made a ton of new friends.  In 2017 we'll continue to seek exciting new yarns, patterns and books.  I'd like to wish a personal Flying Pig Happy New Year  to our Friday morning knitting group for their kindness, encouragement and participation. In December they came up with the idea to "fly" two pigs (they creatively named Knit and Pearl) to an impoverished area of the globe via Heifer International. We all may be a year older but the Friday group's efforts and friendship showed me that goodness like knitting is timeless.  LESSONS Check this site for updates on lessons. We offer private instruction for groups and individuals, a shawl series, and beginning classes for crocheting and knitting.
