Two Rivers Yarns

COVID-19 Update

In accordance with Governor Northam’s recent press release, Two Rivers Yarns is following the guidelines of Retail Stores. I have done a very intense cleaning and will continue to clean. Opening to 10 people or less at one time in the shop.  With that said, I wish everyone to stay as safe as possible.  I (TC) will be the only one working the shop until it as safe for the ladies that work here to return.  This will continue until at least April 23.

With this said the shop hours will vary from day to day. I plan on opening the shop the same days of operation with reduced hours that will vary from day to day.  It is important that you call the shop before you stop by as I may not be here.  I, like everyone else, am doing my best to stay home.  I also know that there is a need for people to have the yarn needed to finish their project, or better yet start a new one to keep busy. My home is only 15 minutes away from the shop, so give me a call at 240-457-0410.  I will meet you at the shop at a time that works best.

I have no problem taking orders over the phone and bringing it to you at the door if you don’t wish to come in, or even bring it to your car. I can also ship the yarn to you.

Two Rivers Yarns appreciates your patience and continued support of this small business. First and foremost is the safety of the customers and staff. Let’s all join the CDC and health professional recommendations urging anyone with flu-like systems, coughs, and colds to stay home.

Once all this is over and everyone is running around again, please remember to stop by and support your small business yarn shop by buying lots of yarn or gift certificates.

Thank you,

TC Strauser



All Amy Odin Classes have been cancelled at this time due to the safety of all our staff and customers

Things We Do…

Find Local Yarns

Two Rivers Yarns scours the countryside to find both local and regional Fiberists. We seek to find quality hand dyed yarns and also sponsor trunk shows in support of our friends and neighbors.

Currently these yarns are sourced from 3 different states: PA, MD and VA.

Have Knit-Alongs
& Offer Classes

Knit Alongs are happening here, whether we just gather and knit, or have a structured project, our group knit alongs from 4:30 PM to 7 PM every Thursday night are really taking off. We also have our teachers on hand to assist with your projects every Wednesday from Noon to 1 PM.

We offer 1-on-1 classes (on-demand), if you need that level of support as well. So, come on out and see us – we have a nice sitting area for our customers to enjoy too!
