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 available.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and join our Ravelry Group.

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

We are grateful that you continue to support our local yarn shop. We don't just sell materials. We're also here with instruction, technical support, and friendship. Studies have shown that knitting and crocheting are good for your mental health, so we provide excellent therapy too!

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.

Many of you remember the shop Creative Ewe in Santa Clarita. The brick-and-mortar store is now closed, but the internet store remains open.

On 12/13 - 15, meet and greet Christian, and see what Creative Ewe has been up to.

Here's what Christian has to say.
"Creative Ewe is popping up again! Visit our next pop-up shop at A-Major-Knitwork in Van Nuys, CA from December 13-15. We'll have all of our yarns for you to squeeze including our newest hand-dyes, Pearl's Choice DK and Pearl's Choice Chunky. You'll also be able to browse our selection of exclusive Crate Kits, tools, notions, and more. Plus, we'll have a few prizes and surprises in store during this pop-up."

By Popular request, this class will be rescheduled, soon.



Once you can knit and purl, you will love using these skills to combine knits and purls to make a braid. Cables are everywhere in fashions and home accessories.

We will be working on small projects that show off this technique and can be completed in a weekend – headbands, coasters, and cell phone covers. These small projects will make great holiday gifts.

We just love
Knit Alongs and Crochet Alongs

There's always something new to learn from the designers and each other. Won't you join us? We update our latest projects on Ravelry.
