About Us

Galt House of Yarn is a full-service Local Yarn Store (or LYS, in common knitter's parlance) located in beautiful and historic downtown Galt, Cambridge, Ontario. 

First dreamed up while on a dog walk in 2015, the Galt House of Yarn was born out of a desire not to have to travel more than 40 minutes just to get some decent yarn. After much plotting and planning and 'research' trips to other yarn stores, the business got underway in earnest in March, 2017. 

The Galt House of Yarn aims to create a positive, encouraging, and community-based retail experience for both our local and online customers. We welcome all crafters of all abilities and tastes.  Our staff motto is: “Yes, we can help you make that”.

Our brick-and-mortar shop is now open, located in the historic Bread Factory building, Unit 110, 7 Grand Avenue S, in Galt, Cambridge, Ontario. We're open from 10-5:30, Tuesday-Saturday, and open late on Thursday until 9pm. Our online store is open 24-7.

We're offering a variety of classes this Winter, from beginner classes to more advanced workshops. Details and registration can be found in the 'Classes' tab at the top of this page. 

Join us every Wednesday (1-3pm) and Thursday (7-9pm) for our community socials! Sit, chat, work on your projects, and meet the neighbourhood yarnies. 

Join our Ravelry group to join in with Knit-A-Longs, social events, see what your neighbours are working on, get your questions answered, and be a part of this enthusiastic growing community!
