Yarn Basket was established by a lifelong yarn lover in August 2014, on Maryland Ave, in the heart of downtown Annapolis, MD. Intended for both knitting enthusiasts and crochet devotees alike, Yarn Basket is a full-service yarn store, selling quality yarns, spinning fibers, spindles, and notions for knitting, crochet, and more. Come take one of our many classes, or join us for our current knit-a-long. Need some assistance with a project or just want a friend to knit with? Stop on by! You’re always welcome at Yarn Basket.
A note from the owner:
I learned to knit when I was a child around age 7. Taught by my grandmother and aunt, knitting became part of who I am. Since then, I always dreamt of owning a yarn shop some day.
Life took a different turn, but it was always in the back of my mind as something I may do in the future. Then, the only yarn shop in Annapolis closed and I knew it was time to turn my dream into reality. The birth of Yarn Basket came from a long lasting desire, built from the memories of my childhood. Throughout our store you’ll experience the dream that created Yarn Basket. I hope it brings as much joy to my customers as it gives me, spending my days with beautiful, luxurious yarn and hand crafted masterpieces.
