We’re OPEN & here to help


Thank you so much for your continued support during this challenging time, and thank you for being so patient with us as we lean in to our re-opening! After a successful week last week, we still received calls from you – our faithful customers – as to when you could come in the shop. That time is NOW!

The shop is opening for regular hours to 10 people at a time – 10 am to 5 pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Hours for Wednesday are from 10 am to 4:30 pm.

If there is more than one person in your party, all of those in your party count toward how many can be in the shop at one time. If you arrive and we have reached our capacity in the shop, please wait outside until it is your turn to shop. You can knock on the door to let us know you are here.

Anyone entering the shop must wear a face covering and must use hand sanitizer upon entry into the shop.

Yarn Store Williamsburg

Williamsburg Yarn Shop

Opened in October 2016, The Flying Needles yarn shop is the realized dream of Susan Dickerson – marrying her dream of being an entrepreneur on her own terms and her love of knitting, well… really… yarn! With the help of former Knitting Sisters’ owner Cathy Gill and her side kick Rosemarie Kammer, Susan’s sidekicks at Williamsburg Floral, as well as support from her knit-night ladies originating from Knitting Sisters, her brother, Wilke G., her daughters and her husband, The Flying Needles soared right out of her mind as an idea and into a real brick and mortar store with the help of her real estate agent Karen Reinthaler and attorney Nancy Williams. Susan is forever grateful to her community and the support given to see The Flying Needles realized.

We offer 5% discounts to military to honor their service, to students because they are just dang broke and to wives of Sports Information Directors because the owner, Susan, just knows. ‘Nuff said.

We believe in providing as clean an earth as possible for generations to come. That’s why at The Flying Needles yarn shop, if you can do without a bag or if you bring your own, you will be entered into our monthly $25 gift certificate drawing! Or if you bring your Flying Needles paper bag back, you will be entered into that drawing AGAIN!
