About Us

Opened in October 2016, The Flying Needles yarn store 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 a vision of a funky, hipster shop, Susan boldly threw open her doors to let the yarn selling and the community building begin! She loves the idea of creating a community around creativity, handmade art, and a gift that you can’t get anywhere else but from the tips of needles and generated out of the most precious commodity someone can ever give you – their time.

Discounts – 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.

Policies – We try to be as clear as possible so our customers understand shop policies. CLICK HERE for a full list how we at The Flying Needles work.
