About Riverside Yarns

Riverside Yarns was created when Colleen Raco, an interior designer, rediscovered her “inner knitter” and realized there was nowhere to buy quality yarns in Owen Sound. She opened the store in September 2006 in a historic building in the recently rejuvenated downtown core. It is a cozy, comfortable and colourful place to shop for the newest yarns, browse through unique patterns, and be inspired by the many knitted samples. The store has proven very popular with local knitters and tourists alike and has inspired many new knitters to fall in love with fiber.
