The Yarn Tree: A Fiber Arts Studio + Store

The Yarn Tree opened its doors in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY in August of 2001. It very quickly became the "go to" spot for high-quality yarns and fibers. Classes and workshops were offered in Spinning, Knitting, Crochet, Weaving, Embroidery, Felting (both wet and needle), Natural Dyeing and Low Impact Dyeing. That same year The Yarn Tree went on-line, shipping its array of goods around the globe.

After 10 years shop owner Linda LaBelle decided it was time to close the doors of the brick & mortar shop. On July 1st 2011 The Yarn Tree was packed up and moved to Asheville, NC. While Linda has no plans to open another brick & mortar, the good news is the on-line business will remain open continuing to sell all the wonderful products The Yarn Tree is known for. The move gives Linda more time to focus on her charity-based organization Stories of Hope ( and enjoy life at a bit slower pace.
