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 seventh year and has given over 3200 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 5 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!

May 5th, 2020

Happy Cinco de Mayo! New in the shop is the Mason Dixon Field Guide - Refresh, featuring designs by Carol Feller. I have ordered some Nua Sport which is used in her patterns. Look for it to arrive in a couple of weeks. Also in is Cairns and Brighton Beach from Queensland. Cotton blends for warm weather tops and accessories. Next week will bring the new issue of Making and Berroco Medina.

April 20th, 2020

New warm weather yarns will be arriving next week. Cottons, linens and blends perfect for tops, tees and light cardigans. Also coming soon is Cecelia Campochiaro's Marls book. If you'd like a copy, please call the shop and leave a message, 433-5697.

To the right is a fantastic new shawl "Breathe and Hope"by Casapinka for LYS Day which was supposed to be held on Sat., April 25th but has been postponed to September. Casapinka decided to offer the pattern now while we're all experiencing Shelter in Place. I have kits available and posted here on the website. This is the third year Casapinka has so generously donated a pattern to help support yarn shops and indie dyers.

April 6, 2020

Need yarn or needles or hooks or something to read? I can help! I am still taking orders for pick up and mail. Emails and phone messages are checked and replied to daily. One on one appointments can be arranged if you need help with a project or yarn selection.

Masks, glovesand social distancing rules are mandatory. Surfaces are cleaned promptly after appointments. 

We will be having virtual get togethers frequently which will be listed to the right of this column under featured events. Check back often for dates and times. 

Be well and of course, keep crafting.



March 2020

Due to the mandatory shelter in place order the shop is closed. 

Handwork like knit and crochet can provide a sea of calm in troubled times. We can all use a little peace right now so gather your yarn and hooks or needles and embrace the soothing motion of your creative hands. I wish you all good health.
