Welcome to SHALL WE KNIT?

We are a full service local yarn shop in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. We offer a wide variety of quality yarns and classes to help you make something wonderful!

"The local yarn shop is a community. It is human connection over a common passion. Knitting is wonderful, but knitting in isolation is less of a joy. We need local yarn shops to provide a gathering place, a place for inspiration, for instruction, for connection with others like us. THAT is why the atmosphere and attitude of a shop matters almost as much as the inventory. Everyone must feel welcome and comfortable, regardless of age, size, or skill level."

SHALL WE KNIT? strives to maintain a sense of community for the knitters of the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and Stratford areas.

RESCUE A UAFO FUNDRAISER – Year 2 (under-appreciated finished object)

They’re lurking in corners in every knitter’s house. Those fabulous projects that triggered a bout of startitis, items we HAD to make RIGHT NOW but that just don’t make us happy as finished objects. So instead of eyeing them ruefully, we’re doing something with them – submitting them to Year 2 of the juried Under-Appreciated Finished Object Fundraiser.

Last year we raised over $800 for Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (http://www.wcswr.org/) and this year we hope to exceed that result.

If you’d like to donate an under-appreciated finished object to the fundraising sale, please drop it off at Shall We Knit? before November 28th, 2015. We’ll need to have objects tagged with some basic information. The tags are available on the Shall We Knit? FAQ page (at the bottom): http://shallweknit.ca/faq.php#UnderAppreciated.

Then starting Tuesday, December 1, objects will be available to be appreciated and purchased at Shall We Knit during regular shop hours. Bring your shopping buddies. Heck, if you decide it’s a perfect Christmas present for someone on your list, we promise not to tell that it’s not your own knit.
The fine print:
- items will be juried by the organizers, not Shall We Knit?
- items will be assessed for condition, quality and will be included at the organizers' discretion
- items must be clean, new or nearly new and in excellent condition
- each item must have a tag filled out, including yarn cost (this helps us to price the item) Tag Link: http://shallweknit.ca/faq.php#UnderAppreciated
- if we can’t accept your item for any reason, it will be returned
- any unsold items will be returned after the holidays and must be picked up by January 10 , 2016
- any unclaimed unsold items will be donated
- each donor can drop off a limited number of items (we suggest three to four)
