Purls of Joy opened in Fall 2010 with the intent of becoming a warm and welcoming place for knitters and crocheters. We carry a variety of yarns from basic to sublime with a focus on affordable quality products. Excellent customer service is our hallmark. 

Each month we offer several knit and crochet classes in our Healdsburg location. Beginning knit, crochet, socks and sewing are always available by appointment. 

We believe in giving back and focus on charity projects such as Project Linus and Alice's Embrace. Project Linus provides blankets to at risk children of all ages in our county. Alice's Embrace provides prayer shawls and lap robes to people with Alzheimer's. Our Beanie Brigade is in its sixth year and has given over 2700 helmet liners to our troops.

Purls of Joy has a thriving community of fiber enthusiasts. Join us for our weekly Sit & Stitch times -  Sundays from 2 to 4 pm and Thursdays from 5 to 8 pm, except the second week of the month which features a Friday UFO night. We hope to see you at Healdsburg's favorite yarn shop!

Loads of new yarns are in! We're now stocking Rowan Felted Tweed in 16 colors, Alpaca Classic, Softyak DK and Cosy Merino. Kidslik Haze will be in shortly.

Malabrigo will ship this week.

We also have a gorgeous soft yarn, Fourteen from Juniper Moon. It's a lovely blend of merino and cashmere in a worsted/aran weight. Yum!!

Classes this month will be by appointment only. We have some beginning knit and crochet classes scheduled on a weekend and a couple of evenings. Gather a friend or two and come in for great instruction.

Saturday, November 10th is an opportunity to learn to knit for free. It's 10,000 New Knitters Day sponsored by Skacel. The goal is to teach 10,000 new people to knit nationwide on that day. Each new knitter will receive a beginner bag with needles, yarn and a pattern for simple fingerless gloves. Instruction times will be at 11, 1 and 3. Come and join us!

We've started our next Beanie Brigade drive with a goal of 500 hats for the Army 4th Infantry Division. If you can help knit a helmet liner or two it would be greatly appreciated. Our POJ Beanie pattern is available on our website on the patterns page. Yarn must be 100% wool - no acrylic. Wool purchases at POJ receive a 25% discount. Shipping date is January 2019.

Each month this year we are offering a limited edition hand dyed yarn based a favorite artist's work. A different artist every month!
