Knitting for Community Service: Local Stores for Knitting Materials

YA students can earn 10 community service hours by knitting a scarf or hat.

Local Stores for Knitting Materials

   Where can I buy the materials needed?


  • Remember an older relative or friend may have knitting needles that they are willing to lend you. They may be a great resource for you.  If available, the library has knitting supplies (not yarn) to borrow. Click here to see what is available.
  • For the novice knitter, purchase non-textured yarns because they are easier to work with.  New knitters find bamboo needles tend to prevent stitches from accidentally sliding off.
  • Acrylic yarns tend to be more affordable and easier to care for.
  • Print out the material/instruction list and bring it to the store with you.
  • Here are three local stores that you will be able to find the materials you need for these projects:

                    A C Moore in Nanuet

                   Michaels in Spring Valley

                   Knitting Nation in Nyack.
