Located on the suburban fringe of Portland, Knitting Bee is a welcoming shop where you’ll find a lovely selection of yarns and friendly customer service. We’re here to help you find the perfect yarn for your project, and we’re happy to lend a hand if you run into trouble. Our walls and shelves are stocked with both one-of-a-kind hand-dyed skeins and beautiful basics in wool, alpaca, cashmere, silk, acrylic, mohair, and cotton. Some are spun or dyed by artisans halfway across the world, while others are produced sheep to skein in the United States, and a few are hand-dyed right here in Portland.

We offer classes, private instruction for knitters of all ages, and frequent circles where you can work on your project with an experienced instructor in a small group setting. Our shop is a cheery space where you can slow down and immerse yourself in color and craft. Beautiful yarns, helpful people, and inspiring project ideas. Stop by and get buzzed on yarn!
