Whippletree Yarn Shop Closing It’s Doors


As many of you know the Whippletree Yarn Shop is the oldest yarn shop in Vermont. It is also one of the oldest in the country. So it is with great sadness that we will be closing the store on August 17, 2019.

In our 21 and 35 years we have met and served many people from all over the world. It has been a fascinating trip, but the course of our lives has changed and it is time for us to change trains.

We would be open to anyone interested in taking the reins and continuing this tradition.

Smile, relax and knit,

Andrea and Shelley

    Best wishes on your new adventures! I recently sold my yarn shop, I understand. I loved stopping by when in the area to cabitz with Andrea about shop stuff.

    I am so sorry to hear this. I wish you both the best in your next steps in life, and I hope maybe someone will come forward to run the store.

    Sorry to hear you’re closing. Local small business is really taking it in the shorts!

    Dear Andrea and Shelly, I’m so sad to hear that you are going to close your wonderful shop. We stop whenever we’re in Woodstock, Vermont on our way from New Jersey to New Hampshire. You have the most beautiful selection of yarn, patterns, and books. Thank you for all the beauty, inspiration, joy, and friendship I’ve experienced through my visits. I hope someone will continue your tradition and take over the shop. I’ll sure miss you both.
    Warm regards,
    Phyllis Alexander
