Welcome, Friends…

A Great Yarn is a charming little nook in beautiful downtown Chatham, Massachusetts. Come snuggle up in one of our cozy window seats and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while perusing our new and used books and knitting supplies. Whether you are looking for this summer’s best seller, or yarn for your latest project, you have come to the right place!

A Great Yarn is the perfect place to knit, to meet, to gather, to read, to shop and to learn in Cape Cod.

We have classes for every level from beginners to experts, and during the summer we have lessons for children. Check out our upcoming classes and our events page by visiting our Calendar or our Events pages!

We’re Here to Help

Slide1We host “open knitting” on Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 1 to 5 PM, and on Saturday morning from 10 AM to noon, where beginner, intermediate and advanced knitters can learn from each other in a helpful, non-judgemental setting.  Our open knitting sessions always include an expert consultant knitter to help with any problems you have with your projects.  There is no charge for the assistance, and you are not required to purchase our yarn or needles to obtain assistance.  We’re here to help!

We’re Number One!
