Overview

The Tinsmith's Wife's primary aim is to provide inspiration for knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, cross stitch, and punch needle by providing a fantastic array of beautiful fibers, supplies, patterns, accessories, and canvases. For knitting and crocheting, we pride ourselves on having an eclectic and broad collection of supplies from independent dyers in addition to larger yarn companies. For our other fiber arts, we have a broad selection of patterns, canvases, and fibers to make your project shine. The Tinsmith's Wife also provides an array of classes in needlework, a warm environment to stitch for an afternoon surrounded by wonderful shop cats and a warm cup of tea. If you have not been to The Tinsmith's Wife yet, we encourage you to bring your current project to the store and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat), and there is always laughter, inspiration, and new ideas. Comfort is also a great town filled with great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time.

Wendy, her Dad and Mom are phenomenal! So very knowledgeable and willing to share! Classes are ongoing and if they don't have something you're looking for... well they'll find it! Their inventory can be overwhelming.... but just ask and they'll help, make suggestions and/or recommendations!
