Knitting, Crochet, Cross Stitch, Needlepoint & More

The Tinsmith’s Wife’s singular goal is to provide inspiration for knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, cross stitch, and punch needle embroidery.  We augment this by providing a superior array of fibers, supplies, patterns, accessories, and canvases.

We have been having a ball gathering each Thursday to create Lisa Richardson’s Rowan 2017 Crochet Along!   It is never too late to join in the fun – or to simply crochet something else. There are a few more releases left in our mystery….   New pieces of the pattern will be released on...

Are you hoping to take your knitting to the next level in 2018?   All right – we have the project and class for you!

We will be following Knit Purl Hunter’s Building With Lace book that creates a nine-panel lace shawl (with beads) and an applied edging.   The fun starts on January 14th!  Check the calendar for more details.

The Tinsmith’s Wife loves fiber, cats, and coffee….

We encourage you to bring your current project and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat or two), and there is always laughter and inspiration. There are also great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time, just outside our doors.

In a nutshell – we have a lot of great stuff! The journey is walking through the rooms of our amazing historic building and coming across another gem of luscious inspiration.

Enjoy and explore – and if you are interested in learning one of our crafts, we would love to help you learn as well!   Just call the shop to coordinate a time to come in.
