Welcome To Heindselman's Knit and Gift

We're happy to have you here! Our store features not just yarn and gifts but also treats, water, and a nice table to sit around. We stay open for you, you're important here. If ever you need help, please ask any of our staff, we're all skilled at knitting, spinning, weaving, or crochet and what we don't know, we'll look up or refer you to someone with the needed skill set. Thanks for coming by!



We are constantly looking to bring new and lovely items into the store for you to take home with you. We are also working hard to make sure that we are carrying products that are locally made or responsibly sources. What does that mean? It means the companies we buy from a re actively engaged in improving the lives of their employees and communities. We don't have a problem with buying foreign made products as long as it benefits real people, and recently we have receive some great new pieces we are very excited about. 

You know that Summer Lee book, the Sock Project, that everybody wants right now? Yep. We have it. 

Other great new books on the shelves include Scandinavian knitting projects, baby knitting projects, afghan collections and the latest from Arne and Carols. 

Our latest yarn obsessions is the cotton/polyester blend DK weight Seaspun. And yes, polyester, HOWEVER, this polyester is produced from plastic garbage pulled out of the ocean, so yes, knit or crochet with Seaspun and improve the oceans. That's a no-brainer! 

Check out the fun new bags! These have come to us from KALA Imports and we have several different styles, from little felted pouches with a zipper closure that are perfect for holding notions - and at just $6.99 you can have several - to colorful cotton bags at a great price - $11.99 that beg to be project bags. Step up your project bag game with the cotton - hemp cross body bags with multiple zippered pockets that are a crafter's dream, just $21.99! 

From another supplier with a really different vibe are purses/project bags that really make a statement. A bag that looks like an old fashioned phone...BUT you can plug in your cell phone and use the receiver to talk on your phone that stays in the purse. So fun! Get your 80's on with a retro boom box bag, or, carry a bag with a working clock on its side.

Is that a bundle of cords?
Nope, it's a bag that is the perfect size to carry a sock project. Low key distressed denim bags go anywhere and with anything. This line of bags starts at just $19.99, so you can have (and gift) several! 

Mother's Day

Mothers' Day Gifts!

You can start by re-reading the previous section because ANY of the fun bags we just go in would be a great gift for any crafter mom. Want to put something awesome in that bag to make it even more special? Try Kathy's hand made soaps in a variety of lovely colors and scents, the luxurious lotion bars by Soaplicity (another local company!), cute earrings or other fun jewelry by Beaded by Bev, locally hand made stitch markers and row counters, and top if off with a bar or two of the decadent Theobroma chocolate that Bobbi mules here from Alaska! 

Other great ideas are the gorgeous, locally hand thrown pottery yarn bowls by Salted Porridge Pottery, and everyone will love one of the fabulous shawl pins or a wire wrapped stone shawl pin with a magnetic closure. Use them to close an open shawl or sweater, or simply as a beautiful accessory to adorn a favorite top. 

Is Mom into home decor? We have beautifully printed tea towels, table runners and placemats, locally made beeswax candles, hand made journals and so much more! 

On the funner side of things, for fiber artist moms, we have Debbie Dietke's fun puzzle books: a crochet one, a knitting one and a yarn one. 

Stuck at home during covid, each day Debbie emailed a yarn themed puzzle to all her fiber artist friends. The rest is history. They are perfect for any yarn fan, and at a special price of $4.99, they will go fast!
