When Susan wanted to fulfill her dream of opening a knitting store, she asked her next door neighbor Harriet to give her an opinion about a space. Within three days Knit-a-Bit, LLC became a reality! We started in 2002 to have fun and we still are!
Susan worked for Crate & Barrel for over 10 years, was passionate about knitting, and was ready for a change. Harriet, another avid knitter, had been in corporate relocation and had recently faced a lay off. Together, they have made an ideal pairing and both are proud of the fact that they filled a niche in the town of Westfield. Both lead active lives outside of the store. Susan has two boys, Harriet has two grown sons and three grandchildren (yes, she has grandchildren). They maintain a loving, bantering relationship as next door neighbors. Most importantly, Susan hates raisins and Harriet hates eggs!
We are passionate about knitting, yarn, and crochet. Whether you have been a knitter for 40 years or you are just beginning your first project, Knit-a-Bit offers an environment where you can hone your skills and expand your knowledge amongst a warm, fun, and friendly group of people.
We are proud to offer a variety of classes for all levels of experience. Two sessions for Fall, Winter, and Spring/Summer. All the supplies needed for classes can be purchased at Knit-a-Bit.
