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 5  even  greater  grandkids.

Meet our newest shop shop...Lola.  Lola is a purebred boston terrier that we got from the Boston Terrier Rescue Group of East TN. She is 7 years old and loves to play tug of war.  Hope you'll come by and meet her!


The Yarn Haven is a registered trademark
and cannot be used by another yarn shop.
Voted Best Arts & Crafts Shop in Knoxville in 2009 & 2010

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.
