Our Story

Fiber Arts Yarn Shop is located within the small cluster of shops in Cape May, known as the Washington Commons.  We are a well-established knitting shop stocked floor to ceiling with exotic, organic, and natural yarns from around the world! Founded in 1986, Fiber Arts Yarn Shop recently celebrated 33 years of providing quality yarn and knitting accessories to the Cape May County community and beyond.

Owner Jana Lynne started Fiber Arts Yarn Shop at the age of 31 when her children were just 2, 4 and 6 years old. A stay-at-home mother, Jana needed to find something she could do while staying home with her young children. She resorted to knitting, a hobby that became so much more.

“I wanted to do something creative with yarn, colors, and designing, and this was something I could easily do at home,” Jana shares. “I loved to knit and create garments and accessories for my kids and family, so I started offering yarn & knitting machines to fellow knitters and it became my mission.”

The business only grew from there, and eventually landed Jana in the beautiful space Fiber Arts Yarn Shop occupies today.

Fiber Arts Yarn Shop not only offers yarns from around the globe, but also handcrafted buttons, Brother Knitting Machines, Ashford Looms, Spinning wheels, and accessories. Classes are available for first-time knitters, or experienced knitters looking to enhance their skills!

Fiber Arts Yarn Shop’s mission is simple: to represent all the Fiber Arts modalities – knitting, crocheting, spinning, weaving and machine knitting; as well as inspire your creativity and enhance your fiber skills while providing fine quality yarns, implements, and one-on-one instruction to do so. Stop by soon at 315 Ocean St., Cape May, and find lovely yarns and lovely people!

We LOVE CAPE MAY, and feature the Cape May Fiber Co. Yarns, Knitting Accessories by local craftspersons, and Indie & Local Designers’ patterns.
