Do you really need an excuse to visit a new yarn shop? Me neither, but The Great Northern Yarn Haul has motivated me to start checking off my list of New England Yarn shops.

The Yarn Bank, St. Johnsbury, VT
The Yarn Bank is an independent yarn shop on Main Street in St. Johnsbury, VT. The Yarn Bank opened in February of 2019 and is owned by Misty Colby
The Yarn Bank is located in a former bank. In the very back you can see the door to the old vault. They carry a wide variety of yarn, from standard yarns like Caron Simply Soft to small, batch hand-dyed yarn.
What Makes The Yarn Bank Unique
What makes The Yarn Bank unique? Easy. The Owner Misty. Not only is she super fun and knowledgable, but she doesn’t just knit, she crochets! [Pausing for angels to sing].
I have found most indie yarn shops are geared towards knitters. There is nothing wrong with knit, except for the fact I don’t know how to knit! So when I visit a store, I tend to look at it from the needs of a crocheter. Sure all indie yarn shops yarn, you can’t crochet without yarn, but it is also fun to talk about crochet projects!
Classes and Social Events
The Yarn Bank has different drop in social events, as well as classes for crochet, knitters, or making charms out of polymer clay.
I wished I lived closer to this yarn store because I would probably be here every week. As soon as I walked in, just being in the store felt like a social event, like walking into a friend’s personal yarn stash.

After visiting The Yarn Bank, I highly recommend grabbing a sandwich and an avocado brownie at the deli in back of Natural Provisions.
