We are a yarn and fiber arts school and online store located in Lynnwood, WA. We've been supplying, teaching and supporting fiber artists and enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest and beyond since 1974.
Hello Friends! We are shipping orders three days a week, to get your supplies to you in a timely manner. Curbside pickup is also available for online orders. Weaving and spinning classes are on hold for now. Customer service will always be available by email, and we are, as ever, committed to helping you on your creative journey. Thank you for your patience, and stay well!
If you are considering purchasing drop-ship items from Ashford (looms, spinning wheels, larger equipment), please see this page for estimated shipping dates to help you plan.
We look forward to continuing to help you learn, find and source what you need along your fiber arts path.
