Featured Destination: Walther Handmade

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

Today we are learning about our final Featured Destination: Walther Handmade

Walther Handmade opened in the Fall of 2023 in Historic Downtown Harriman. We strive to share the "joy of making" with our community by providing access to high-quality yarns, tools, notions and other craft supplies in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We welcome fiber enthusiasts of all kinds and skill-levels!

We have a growing selection of natural-fiber yarns, many of which are made in the USA using American fibers. We have a full array of knitting needles, crochet hooks, and notions, as well as books and patterns for both knitting and crochet. Our craft kits are great for beginners or anyone looking for a cute, quick project. While you're here, be sure to browse our unique gifts and accessories!
