Welcome to Kelowna Yarn & Needlecrafts!

Opened in 1986, Kelowna Yarn & Needlecrafts is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Okanagan Valley.  Now into its third decade and third owner, Cheryl Brown, Kelowna Yarn & Needlecrafts continues its dedication to providing quality yarn and needlecraft supplies in a friendly, relaxed environment.  I strive to create a welcoming atmosphere for all through free stitch and chat sessions, dynamic workshops, community service projects, and personalized assistance with your projects. I know every project is special and our mission is to make the process from pattern selection to finishing as enjoyable as possible.

Our Yarn

We carry a variety of yarns from well-known companies including Briggs & Little, Cascade, Drops, Estelle, King Cole, Sandnes Garn, and Zealana. And we're always trying new yarns and fibres to engage and excite fibrephiles young and old. As the creative force behind Dye Cauldron Yarns, I understand the value of supporting local artisans to grow their businesses. We're on the lookout for suppliers of local yarn and needlework supplies to complement the existing stock of hand dyed fibres from Riverstone Yarns (Kaslo), Fat Marmot Knits (Kelowna) and Smith and Ewe (Kamloops). Our Local Wall displays beautiful artisanal small batch and one-of-a-kind hand-dyed skeins for your stitching pleasure.

Our Needles & Tools

No fibre artist (yes, that's you!) can create without their tools, and we have a great selection. We offer interchangeable, circular and double-pointed needles from Brittany, ChiaoGoo, and Knitter's Pride, along with crochet hooks, and needle punch and felting supplies. We are introducing weaving supplies, including looms and spinning wheels. We also carry felting supplies: colourful roving, books, and needles to help you explore this fun craft.

Our tool wall is stocked with tapestry and embroidery needles, pompom makers, stitch markers, cable needles - everything you need to practice your craft.

Our Cross Stitch Supplies

We're your Okanagan supplier for hard-to-find cross stitch materials. You'll find Aida cloth in a variety of colours and counts, a full range of DMC embroidery cotton, beads, and charts from companies like Wichelt, X's and Oh's, and Stitching Studio to peak your interest and help you create heirloom pieces to be treasured for generations.

Stitch and Chat

Building community is important to us! Find out about our free weekly Stitch and Chat sessions, and join us for fun, learning and yarn.
