A group of local knitters and crocheters , all of whom have had a connection to the original Purls of Joy yarn store over the years, self-organized to transition the business into a member-owned Cooperative. The Cooperative was formed in March 2022, and is driven by a group of 15 Full Members, with support from a small group of Silent Partners, as Patrons of the business. The Cooperative is also supported by a group of dedicated volunteers from the surrounding community.
The prime driver of the Cooperative is to maintain the spirit of Purls of Joy, established by Rosanne Park over 10 years ago, with the goal of supporting and growing the community of local fiber artists around the Healdsburg area, from shepherds to individuals producing finished knitted or crocheted goods.
We have maintained the original location of the store on Healdsburg Avenue, and we offer a range of woolen fibers and finished goods, from a diversity of sources to meet the needs of the larger Healdsburg community. We plan to serve all comers, from visitors and tourists, to long term area residents and newcomers to the City. We also offer services to the knitting public, where advice is given freely, knitting and crochet patterns can be provided, and we have knitting and crochet repair specialists who can help solve your trickiest projects.
The Cooperative not only offers a space for all members of the Healdsburg community to come together to share experience and knowledge of the fiber arts, including local artisans, but also to support those who are just beginning their journey in this space. For example, we will maintain the Thursday evening “Sit and Stitch” events at the store where all are made welcome.
We plan to support programs of outreach and education with focus on groups that have been traditionally underserved. We are working with local community organizations, such as the Healdsburg Public Library, among others, and we offer Spanish speaking customer service during the opening hours. We also plan to continue support of programs that the store has supported in the past, such as Project Linus, and Warmth for Warriors.
Our intention is that we keep a vibrant community-centered, fiber arts center in the heart of Healdsburg as a complement to existing businesses in town.
