Avenue Yarns is a neighborhood full service knitting store. Situated on Solano Avenue, a vibrant shopping street that bridges Albany and Berkeley. Surrounded by amazing restaurants, cafes and interesting specialty store.
Karen King opened Avenue Yarns with Rebekah Porter on October 10, 2015. Customers know Karen and Rebekah because the two have worked in just about every yarn shop in the East Bay over the last dozen years or so. Working in, learning in, and loving other shops gave Karen and Rebekah a unique opportunity to hone their vision of what makes a great yarn shop: selection, crafting support, and lots of craft community get-togethers and events. For guidance in selection Karen and Rebekah look for tools, yarns and fiber, that THEY want to work with and colors that inspire them. Each offering has been thoughtfully chosen and probably has a little story behind it!
