Ask any knitter or crocheter, and they’ll tell you that one of the joys of their chosen hobby is scouting out local yarn stores. Fortunately for residents of The Highlands Apartments, we’ve got several yarn shops near Overland Park.
Whether you’ve been working with yarn for years or you’re just starting out, these local businesses are a wonderful resource for all things yarn-related.
Yarn Shop and More
Self-described as “the finest yarn shop in Kansas City,” Yarn Shop and More is a fantastic place to go if you need yarn, patterns, or just a helping hand. They offer a welcoming place to shop for supplies. Also, you can get private or group knitting and crocheting lessons.
If you like crocheting in a group, spend time with fellow crafters during their twice-weekly community crafting hours. If you’re looking to learn a new skill, why not sign up for one of their upcoming classes on Tunisian crochet?
Regardless of your reason for visiting, you’re sure to enjoy stopping by!
The Studio Knitting & Needlepoint
This is one of the oldest yarn stores in the Kansas City area. The Studio Knitting & Needlepoint first opened in the basement of a toy store in 1967. Since then, The Studio has grown exponentially. It’s one of the best places to go if you need something for your latest project.
They offer classes in knitting, crochet, and needlepoint. Courses range from beginner ‘how-to’ lessons to project-based courses that will teach you how to make something from a specific pattern. In addition to all of this, their staff is passionate about helping other crafters with their projects.
So if you have a question or just need a little bit of help, be sure to drop in.
The friendly folks over at Yarn Social are dedicated to fostering a love of the fiber arts in their community, regardless of your preferred method of crafting. They sell a wide variety of artisan yarns and other supplies. Also, they offer classes and workshops in a wide selection of disciplines. That includes private lessons for those wishing to learn a new skill.
This is a great place to shop, learn, and meet new friends.
Overland Park is a great place for crocheters and people looking for craft groups. Also, look for local get-togethers and chances to have fun with friends at these local escape rooms. If you’re interested in learning more about our community, contact our leasing agents today.Back to all posts
