about us

The Yarn Haven opened its doors on February 2, 2007.  It was very appropriate that it was Groundhog's Day as I really felt I needed 6 more weeks to get ready.

My name is Sandy Gray and  I own The Yarn Haven.  I am a  native   Knoxvillian   with    a wonderful husband,  3  great kids,   and 6 even  greater  grandkids.

Meet our shop dog...Lola.  Lola is a purebred boston terrier that we got from the Boston Terrier Rescue Group of East TN. She is 12 years old and loves to play tug of war.  Hope you'll come by and meet her!

What our customers are saying about us...

I wanted to let you know that I think you have some very creative ideas for building a knitting and crocheting community!  I'll continue to mention your events to the other knitters I know.

In Remembrance

Jasmine, my boston terrier/chihuahua mix dog, came  to  the  shop  with  me nearly every day for 6 1/2 years.  She passed on October 4, 2016.  She was the best shop dog ever.  We miss her dearly.
