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!
Summer Hours Are Here !
Changes Due to the Coronavirus !
A Great Yarn is open for in-store shopping. However, all customers must wear a face mask, and must observe social distancing, i.e., at least six feet between customers. In addition, we must limit to six the number of customers in the shop at any one time. Curbside pick-up and mail order shipping is available for customers who wish to phone-in orders. If there is anything you would like to order please give us a call at 508-348-5605, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage customers who are unable to wear a mask because of medical issues, or are uncomfortable with having other shoppers in the store, to take advantage of our “appointment only” approach to shopping. The hours available for such shopping are 9 to 10 am, and 5 to 6 pm, Monday through Thursday. We request that customers call us at 508-348-5605 if they would like to schedule appointment only shopping.
We’re Here to Help
We remain committed to providing a Help Desk for folks experiencing problems with their knitting or crocheting. However, due to limitations on the number of individuals who can be in the shop at any one time, we can no longer conduct our Help Desk inside the shop.
We’re pleased to announce that we have developed an alternative approach to providing a Help Desk, which is to conduct the Help Desk under a newly constructed canopy in the shop’s backyard. Participants must wear a mask, and must observe social distancing requirements.
As before, the Help Desk will be conducted on Tuesday and Friday afternoons (weather permitting), from 1 pm until 5 pm, and Jean Williams will again be leading the Help Desk. Folding chairs will be provided, but for comfort participants may wish to bring their own lawn chairs.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to continue offering a Help Desk on Saturday morning.
We can also provide one-on-one assistance with your knitting or crocheting problems. If the problem is small and will only take a few minutes to address, such as a dropped stitch, we can provide assistance during normal business hours, and there will be no charge. However, given the limited number of staff we currently have in the shop, large problems will require an appointment, and will also require a nominal fee. If you would like to make an appointment please give us a call at 508-348-5605.
Cape Cod A-List is an organization that features thousands of the area’s best local businesses. Eligible businesses are nominated by customers, local residents and followers of the A-List in 84 different categories, and winners in each category are determined by popular vote. A Great Yarn is proud to announce that we were voted the NUMBER ONE crafts store on Cape Cod, and the NUMBER ELEVEN bookstore.
We appreciate very much everyone who voted for us.
