New hours! We will now be available for curbside pickup Tuesday through Saturday 10:30- 5:30. And closed on Sunday and Monday.
ALSO! We are now able to offer skein winding for online orders.
Because of the time it takes and the wear and tear to our equipment we are charging a nominal fee to help offset those costs.
Yarn you order from us can be wound for you, before you pick up or ship. Under the quantity tab, please indicate how many skeins you would like wound. If you only select 1, then we will wind 1. Click here for the listing
Please note that wound yarn cannot be returned or refunded.

COVID-19: How Avenue Yarns is Moving Forward
In accordance with Contra Costa County's recently issued Shelter in Place order, Avenue Yarns' storefront will be closed until further notice. AS OF MONDAY MAY 25TH WE WILL BE OFFERING CURBSIDE PICKUP AS WELL AS SHIPPING.
This means we will not be holding Knit Labs or Social Knitting for the time being and all classes are postponed. If you purchased a class that was to take place between now and April 7, expect an email in the coming days that will re-assess your options for refunding or rescheduling your class. We plan to open again as soon as we are safely able to.
Until we can resume in-person operation, our online store will be our only business outlet. We are very proud of the community we have managed to foster in our 4 years of operation, and as such we will miss seeing your faces these coming weeks. The following actions are being taken to improve your online shopping experience:
-As always, we are working on getting as much of our store inventory online as possible. The Shelter In Place order has only expedited this process. Our store inventory is being updated regularly, so be sure to check back in.
-We knitters and crocheters know better than anyone how solitary our crafting can be. For many of us, knitting and crocheting is a great way to sit with ourselves and get away from it all, stitch by stitch. This isolated meditation can turn lonely once it becomes less voluntary. We hope you will share your creations with us on Instagram using the tag: #togetherontheavenue . This way we can nurture some online community until we can meet again.
Thank you endlessly for your support. Avenue Yarns' staff wishes you and your loved ones the utmost health in the coming weeks.
