Macomb County has one less local yarn shop; Artisan Knitworks has moved to the west side. Previously located in St. Clair Shores, Artisan Knitworks has packed up the shop and relocated to Oakland County. The new location is now open at 23616 Farmington Rd., Farmington, MI. The shop’s new phone number is 248-427-0804.
The decision to move the store to Farmington was made with growth potential and expansion in mind. The latest email blast from Artisan Knitworks detailed positive changes in their new location,
- We have a patio in back of the shop, complete with bistro tables!!!
- We have a big basement, where the Stash now lives, and where spinning can happen. You can even rent our wheels if you want for only ten bucks an hour.
- We have an entire wall of Michigan yarns!!!! We have a separate button room!!!!
- We still offer gift certificates and generous return policies. We basically don't care when you return it, so long as it's not used or wound, still saleable, with original wrapper and receipt.
- We also offer Artisan Memberships for $300 a calendar year which we pro-rate for the remainder of this year. Artisans get a membership card, free Knit-Togethers (we don't care how often you come), and a 15% discount on all full-price merchandise (except for topical and project classes beyond Knit-Togethers and our Third Coast workshop offerings). We also will have occasional events for Artisans only. Sign up soon!!!
We now offer finishing services - done by Cindy Garcia, once the finisher for Knit-A-Round Yarn Shop in Ann Arbor. She is an expert. If you hate blocking, sewing, and so on, you have two choices - take a finishing class with us, or leave it with Cindy! Details will be in the shop.
In the newsletter is also a coupon offering 20% off your purchase in the new location. Class schedules will be available at the website very shortly. New teacher and staff biographical information will be made available in a newsletter at a later date. Sign up for the newsletter and be kept up to date on all the happenings in their new location.
