The hugely successful and popular clubs by Knit Purl Hunter and instructed by Edye VanDyke at the Yarns By Design boutique will begin in January 2017.

Knit Purl Hunter Clubs

We have a couple of spaces available in...

Building Blocks
- Improve Your Knitting Skills
One Square at a Time!

Michelle’s knitting series is designed to develop your skills and advance your technique - all supported with online video instruction!

Club Meetings are held for 1.5 hours on scheduled Friday evening from 5:30-7:00pm every month at YBD.

The Building Blocks club will work through the major knitting skills while creating 12 lovely squares. Master each technique before moving to a more advanced concept in a carefully designed sequence. Gain an abundance of knitting know-how along with 12 blocks to assemble into a sampler afghan.
Building In Color is a carefully designed sequence of patterns by Michelle Hunter that introduce knitters to color work in many of its various forms. The year long project will be a beautiful finished blanket.
Members will receive 20% off the cost of the yarn (SimpliWorsted or Simplicity by HiKoo) for 12 squares.
Club Membership is $240 for 12 months (January - December).

Clubs are beginning to fill, pre-registration is required, space is limited. Register in-person, by phone or online.

Yarns By Design  


Yarns By Design is celebrating our 10 year anniversary. My mum and I opened the Yarns By Design boutique ten years ago on July 28, 2006. My mum, a dance instructor and owner for over 40 years, mother of 4 daughters, 6 grandchildren. Myself, a daughter, sister, designer, mother, wife. We began this journey not entirely certain as what to expect, but we never stopped setting goals and reaching milestones along the way. We have realized there are many rewarding benefits which come with this business, for example, working with small businesses from all over the world, learning more about fiber, expanding our skills and most importantly, and by far the most rewarding, meeting our customers (a.k.a family).

Thank you for being loyal customers and supporting your local yarn store (LYS)! 


Sandra, Tamara and the YBD staff
