What a great store! I could have stayed all day. The lady was very friendly and helpful. I bought way more than I should have and was thrilled to see some local yarns available. I'll go back agai on my next trip in the area.

This is by far the best knitting shop in the Franklin County and surrounding areas. I love my visits.

I went to a seminar by Diana Sullivan this week. It was on machine knitting and held at the Knitting cottage...what a treat...Susan and Elizabeth are fantastic...I felt like I had been invited into their home...the yarns are wonderful..wish I lived closer so I could go all the time..

Just to let everyone know the ladies do not use the internet. So if you have any question or would like any information please call them.

Your feed back on here is very useful as it helps other knitters like yourself to see what kind of shop this is and what they carry.

The sisters Susan and Elisabeth are the most kindest ladies you will ever meet.
They will always help you anyway they can if you just call then.
They give public and private classes.
They also give lessons and sell knitting machines and cone yarn.
Their hours and phone number is at the top of this page.

I recently visited The Knitting Cottage for my second trip. We attended their "Knit Out" in June, 2013. It was a perfectly charming day. We sat under the trees and enjoyed a breeze all day long. We shopped and then shopped again. If you are looking for super high-priced yarns, you won't find them here, which I love. They have reasonably priced yarns and a LOT of variety. I bought some cotton for a slouch hat. My friend bought a bag, some yarn, and a yarn bowl. They have a great selection of beautiful yarn bowls. AND they really have a lot of accessories. I love that about The Knitting Cottage. There is plenty of parking. The sisters are lovely and kind. We felt embraced by the group of knitters that knit their regularly. So all-in-all I loved the Knitting Cottage and wish it were in Perry County, PA!

My friend and I visited this cute little cottage today on a day trip to visit 4 shops.

This shop is great ~ the ladies are wonderfully welcoming and they have a nice selection of yarns.

We enjoyed shopping there and the conversations with the ladies working.

We will be back when in the area.

Oh, some people said that a GPS would not locate the shop ~ mine did.

the knitting cottage to all my friends

The shop is wonderful and Susan and Elizabeth are also. I went just to see their new shop and came away with two projects. Hellp is always available if you get stuck with your project and their goal is for you to be pleased with your project. If you like fiber arts and yarn of anykind their shop is a must.

They have moved! It is indeed "down the road and around the corner" Iron Bridge Rd In Waynesboro PA. The new shop is gorgeous! Well lit, with ample room to display all their wonderful yarns and other fiber related products as well as more room for parking! There is enough space for some comfy looking seating to sit and knit (or crochet) and a whole room dedicated to machine knitting. Susan and Elizabeth are knowledgeable and gracious and their prices are very reasonable. Truly a "must visit" shop for yarn shop lovers!

I drove 1.5 hours to the Knitting Cottage and it was certainly a treat! The sisters running the shop are adorable, kind, and genuine! The shop is cluttered but once you are in you are consumed by the products they sell. We had to return something we bought from them and they were very kind and eager to give us a refund. When I pulled two skeins from the shelve to buy, they quickly offered to respool for me. Once you look past the yarn, accessories, and the kind ladies you will be amazed at the old house they occupy. If you are lucky to pop in to enjoy it, otherwise they are on the move to a new location. When asked where are they moving to they said it was a mile down the road "all you do is cross the bridge then turn left and go 1/2 a mile, you'll see us down there". I thought the prices were fair and reasonable. They also claim they do not have internet access so calling them is a must! Finally, do not use the GPS to find them. Although I don't own one, when I got turned around they said the GPS will send you in the wrong direction.

Great little shop!!

I drive by your place and I see that beginner classes are starting.
When do they start and how much are they?
Oh, and what day or night they would be?
Thank you very much.
