Stash, a Place for Yarn

Stash-A Place For Yarn, St Petersburg’s only local yarn shop, opened on July 1, 2014, in the eclectic 600 Block of downtown St Pete. It was a dream come true for Kristin Lohr and her silent business partner. Stash is the source for luxury yarns, classes and community for local fiber lovers and a destination for vacationing knitters from around the country and the world. 


From their application for Best at Grassroots Marketing:

"Marketing began as soon as we decided to make this dream a reality.  As we searched for the perfect location, we also went searching for our future customers.  Kristin started a Meetup Group, and began having informal Sip and Knit meetings throughout downtown. By the time the May Indie Market rolled around we had secured our location and used the market as an introduction to the neighborhood [by holding knitting demos and handing out postcards announcing the new shop]. They added a coming soon sign to the papered display windows and heard from many excited knitters as they got the shop ready to open." 


Stash is at 625 Central Ave.,  St. Petersburg. They can be reached at 727-822-9276 or
