I love this store because they have the Jared Flood yarns, Shelter and Loft. They also have Rowan, Handmaiden, Shibui Knits, etc. It has a very quaint atmosphere. It was fun to take the ferry over, but it does require a bit of planning. The staff was very busy.

I feel so fortunate to have visited this shop while on vacation. I adored the shop and my husband was thrilled with the candy shop around the corner from Churchmouse. This was so worth the trip over on the ferry. I have since bought items on line from Churchmouse that I love! Will definitely look forward to returning! ~kas

I've been visiting this gorgeous shop since it opened and I can't imagine how to improve it: it's inspired and inspiring in every way: filled with expert, friendly staff; great supplies of every sort (including needlework), patterns (including wonderful store patterns) and classes. I've taken advantage of all of them! One challenging aspect of my visits is that the abundance of samples makes selecting my projects an exercise in willpower. Each time I enter, I inhale deeply because there are fine teas wafting from where they are nestled in the back corner of the store...it smells wonderful inside!

I usually visit J'Aime Les Crepes when I'm hungry (next door to Mora-savory or sweet true French crepes), or Fork & Spoon, right next door to Churchmouse.

In my view, this is AS GOOD AS IT GETS for knitters.

My daughter-in-law introduced me to this store. Everything they have is wonderful. The staff are all friendly and so very helpful. So glad I took a credit card as I bought way more than I had planned. You know how it is, I just had to have one more thing... Can't wait to make a return trip!

The shop was a lovely place to visit while on the island. I purchased some of their wonderful patterns and a couple of skeins of yarn. The people working there were lovely as well.

This is by far my favorite Knitting Shop in the Country....think that is enough said.


by NWLady on Wednesday, May 09 2012 at 10:24PM CDT

One of my favorite places on the planet. Super helpful people and lovely yarns to pet and purchase. Also go there for the great selection of loose leaf teas.

Great little shop with so much character!!!


by NWKnitter on Thursday, Nov 24 2011 at 12:05AM CST

By far, the nicest yarn shop I have ever been to. Parking can be a hassle, but just find a place and walk in. It's worth it. So many beautiful fibers, patterns, displays. Everything is pricey, but the quality is there. The staff is so friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Do yourself a favor, take your time and your credit card, and check it out.

TAKE THE FERRY TO BAINBRIDGE!! Churchmouse Yarns & Teas is totally worth the cost of your ferry ride!

As a first-time visitor to the Seattle area from Chicago, a ferry ride and island visit was one of my "...must do..." activities. So when a Ravelry friend told me about Churchmouse, my island destination was settled. What a *FANTASTIC* yarn shop!

Not only is there an excellent selection of yarns in a variety of weighs, not only is the layout of the shop intuitive and inviting, not only are there excellent notions and buttons, not only are the teas aromatic and delicious, but knitted- and crocheted-up versions of their house patterns are displayed throughout their store. And hopefully you won't leave until you have investigated them all -- and I'll bet you'll purchase more than one! I'm on my second pattern now and must gush about how well-written and error-free they are.

Once you're in the shopping area, park your car and walk to find the shop. My only criticism is that it's a small sign and somewhat difficult to catch if you're just driving through town. We missed it twice and didn't catch it until we parked and were walking.

Very friendly and helpful and a great selection of yarn

I would like to purchase some yarn:
Fleece Artist Nova Wool

Can I order it from you online?

Or, where on earth can I find it?

Thank you!!!

Came here on holiday. A lovely store with friendly staff. Crazy selection of Addi's. Will be back if I am in the area.

This has to be the best yarn shop in Washington. It's a gorgeous ferry ride from Seattle, stocks gorgeous yarn, is next to a killer ice cream shop. The staff is unbelievably FRIENDLY, whether they're offering to wind your balls, giving you biscuits and champagne (Mr. Mouse!) or just gushing over yarn they are always a pleasure.

Loved this store!! Great selection of Habu and many other yarns. Staff was all very friendly and they have tea!! The ferry ride over was a bonus!

If I have to rate LYS this is my very favorite. The ferry ride is very convenient. Nice walk to town. Churchmouse is yarn heaven. There are lush expensive yarns and reasonable moderate priced yarns intermixed. All well displayed at an easy level. Free shop patterns using many of the yarns. I always find tempting new yarns and things to knit. Also has a tea section. Lovely British tea ware and cups. Owner Kim's husband gives out little cups of tea on weekends. Everything is so nice and well arranged. It is a treat. They also have beautiful needlepoint canvases. Classes are so nice. Very nice guest teachers from time to time. We were one lucky to have an all day class with Lucy Neatby. It there was a knitter's heaven it would be Churhmouse.

My last stop on theLYSTour 09. Well worth the wait. The shop is beautiful, the staff are fantastic! Great selection of yarns and the fun twist of the tea shop.

I absolutely love this shop, however, I don't get up that way as often as I would like to.
From the moment I laid my eyes on this shop, I loved the store front, the staff, the products, etc.
It is definitely worth a trip to visit this shop a minimum of once per year.
I am all about the experience and a visit to this yarn shop is a great experience.

Love love LOVE this shop! Makes me want to move to Bainbridge Island! Amazing selection, bright and cheery, and super helpful, friendly staff. A+


by MatkaZ on Saturday, Sep 13 2008 at 12:58PM CDT

Within walking distance of the ferry dock. Near other interesting shops and restaurants. Fabulous selection of fibers and knitting supplies. The staff are knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. A ferry ride, a visit to Churchmouse, and a cup of tea make a lovely Saturday afternoon.


by Joanne on Monday, Aug 25 2008 at 09:00AM CDT

I really enjoyed my visit, and also the ferry ride to the shop. If I'm ever in the area again, I'll be back, definitely. Joanne, Highlands Ranch, Colorado.


by jessicastar on Saturday, Jul 12 2008 at 02:22PM CDT

My LYS and the selection is amazing. Worth a ferry trip!


by Anonymous on Wednesday, Jan 02 2008 at 01:14PM CST

The best yarn store in the area by FAR!


by sockfanatic on Monday, Sep 10 2007 at 01:17PM CDT

Great location. It's always fun to take a ferry ride somewhere & what's better than taking one to go yarn shopping. They have a good selection, they even sell Socks that Rock. Once you're done shopping head across the street to MORA...it's the best ice cream store I think I've ever been to.
