Welcome to Our Website

A-MAJOR-KNITWORK is a major yarn shop for all your knitting and crocheting needs.  The shop sells the latest high-fashion yarns alongside high-quality basic yarns, and offers a large selection of needles, accessories, books, leaflets, and buttons.  The owners offer custom charting services and technical help. 
WIFI is now available.  Follow us on Facebook, and join our Ravelry Group.

The shop is a perfect spot in the San Fernando Valley where a skein of yarn becomes a-major-knit wearable, snuggable, or giftable.

We're located near Lake Balboa Birmingham High School on the SE corner of Balboa and Vanowen in a strip shopping center behind the Jack-In-The-Box. There is plenty of parking and easy freeway access to both the Ventura (101) and San Diego (405) freeways.

Happy Birthday Sylvia!
