#NeedleStoresoftheWorld: Unwind Yarn Shop

By: TNNA Editor

Another month, another yarn store highlight. This week, we take you to Michigan to learn about Brighton's Unwind Yarn Shop. Discover what makes this store unique and what inspired owner Mary Haskin.

Describe what Unwind Yarn Shop does best.

Unwind carries a wide selection of specialty yarns, patterns and supplies, and also offers knit and crochet classes for students of all levels. The store aims to create a safe space for all who want to learn and grow in the fiber arts. If a project isn’t bringing you joy, it’s time to rip it and find the right project for you! As they say, "Come in and Unwind with us."

What makes Unwind Yarn Shop unique?

We offer 19 different learning opportunities each week, led by a cadre of instructors who boast more than 100 years of knitting and crochet experience. These classes, and a love for the fiber arts, mean that we have a warm place for building community where all are welcome. Surrounded by the industry's finest yarns and notions, our staff encourages students and patrons to develop their creativity and their community — creating empowerment, one stitch at a time.

Share a fun fact about your store.

[Owner] Mary is a purple-haired knitting maven who spent her first career in management at a multi-billion dollar corporation. She followed her passion into fiber arts and hasn't looked back!
