Visit Hoboken:
Here is our Visit Hoboken page from our blog. It is a great guide both for first time visitors or for those who want to find new places in the Mile Square City (as well as support businesses owned by fellow knitters).
First Time Visitor?
Give us a call and we will help you find the easiest ways in and out of our city.  Hint: we have a parking garage just down the street (Fourth Street between Clinton and Grand) and know a few restaurants who will validate parking for up to three hours.  That’ll give you time to eat lunch, walk around town, and, of course, shop for yarn!

About Patricia’s Yarns:
Celebrating Eleven Years! Patricia’s Yarns is an exclusive retailer of hand-dyed, natural fiber, artisan yarns for hand knitting and crochet.
Patricia’s Yarns is owned by Patricia Scribner, a Hoboken resident and an avid knitter and crocheter. Patricia’s Yarns was a dream until April, 2004 when Patricia left her career at a financial firm with a goal of doing something she loves in the town that she loves. The shop became a reality in July of that same year.
Patricia designed her shop to best display the beautiful yarns she hand selects from around the world and to make a cozy and inviting space just for you. It is the goal of Patricia’s Yarns to fulfill all of your knitting and crocheting needs.
A true Local Yarn Shop, Patricia’s Yarns is proud of its ongoing commitment to the city of Hoboken and beyond. We are honored to partner in philanthropy with the following organizations: (Locally) the Hoboken Homeless Shelterthe Hoboken Historical Society, the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, numerous local public and private schools, (Nationally) Caps to the CapitalHeifer InternationalThe Mother Bear Project, andProject Linus.

Charity Knitting:
At Patricia’s Yarns, we do many charity knit nights.  In the past, we taught local teachers to knit for free (and supported local school knitting clubs), we knit “#26hats for #26acts” (knit 26 children’s hats in the wake of the Newtown shooting), knit and raffled off beautiful blankets for the Hoboken Homeless Shelter, and knit bears for the Mother Bear Project.  We look forward to more charity knit nights in 2015 and hope you can join us.
