The Wool Cabin opened in
1979. Renee Groves purchased the store in
1997, and owned the store
until her passing in 2003.
Her daughters, Alison Barlow and Suzette Cannon, have run the store for the past 10 years.

Best Social Knitworking!
The Wool Cabin!

This little shop in East Ivy Place was founded by Renee Groves in 1979. After Groves passed away in 2003, the tradition of providing a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful fuzzy spot for local knitters was carried on by her daughters, Alison Barlow and Suzette Cannon. Upon entering the store, you can’t help but squeeze the skeins of yarns in myriad weights, fibers and colors along with an inspired selection of needles, patterns and tools. But more important is the tradition of sharing the craft through classes and events, including free social knitting on Thursdays from noon to 2 p.m.
