The Knit & Stitch Shoppe first opened its doors in Lynn Valley on May 31st, 1971. Its founder and owner, Edith Mutsaerts, sought to bring the best materials and styles for handknitting from her Country, Austria, to Vancouver's North Shore.
49 years later, under the guidance of Edith's daughter Ingrid, The Knit & Stitch Shoppe continues to provide the largest and most diverse selection of yarns you'll find almost anywhere in the world - all nestled in West Vancouver's cozy Dundarave neighbourhood. Not only that, but with the legacy of 49 years of knitters built into our store, The Knit & Stitch Shoppe has a character and community that you simply won't experience at any other yarn store. Whether it's the patterns donated to us dating all the way back to the 1940s, the quality and care of our customer service, or our friendly circle of store regulars sitting in our comfy chairs, The Knit & Stitch Shoppe is a place for all knitters - whether raw beginners or lifelong devotees - to feel at home.
