Woven Art is a unique and inviting yarn shop in downtown East Lansing, at the doorstep of Michigan State University. Founded in 2003, we have our own line of hand-dyed and hand-painted yarns. We also carry handspun yarns, and yarns from small mills in Michigan, and from across the United States. Our large selection also includes yarns that are made from sustainable and environmentally friendly fibers, yarns supported with great patterns and designs, and staples you need.
We offer classes and workshops in knitting, crochet, weaving, dyeing, spinning and more. In addition to our own talented teaching staff, we bring in well-known instructors from both near and far.

Meg Croft, Owner
Meg started her wool journey at the age of 9 when she learned how to knit. Over the years she has picked up crochet, spinning, felting, and weaving. Her passion is to collaborate with knitters, crocheters, spinners and weavers to help them grow and embrace new skills. Her likes: wool, stranded colorwork, linen, riding her bike, rare sheep breeds, history of knitting, natural dyeing, wool festivals, snow shoeing, and curious people.
Jenn is a kind and gentle teacher, and wants to help you on your fiber adventure. She enjoys knitting and designing for her children, and loves to bellydance!
Sarah learned to knit way back when. Her Barbies' closets contained quite a few hand knits, one sister went off to college with a pair of argyle socks, and there were at least two boyfriend sweaters (the curse lives on!). These days, Sarah surrounds herself with knitters (as a teacher, both locally and nationally), patterns (as a tech editor for knitting books and magazines), projects (current WIP count is…out of control), and yarn (as Shop Girl at Woven Art!).
Lynn has been an avid knitter for about ten years, which is about when she learned to knit continental. She is a self-professed shawl-aholic and always has at least one on the needle. Lynn loves stranded colorwork, cables and lace and enjoys planning projects that incorporate as many of these as possible! This leftie enjoys: weaving on her rigid heddle loom, sharing her knowledge in the classes she teaches, birdwatching, gardening and running. In the near future she hopes to learn how to spin her own yarn.
Kathy is an avid weaver and enjoys introducing beginning weavers to the rigid heddle loom. She enjoys customizing rigid heddle weaving classes to her students' interests - so please make requests! She has shown her work at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, and also has taught weaving through the Lansing Art Gallery in the Lansing Public Schools. Kathy also enjoys knitting and spinning.
Shop mascot Zeby can sometimes be found in the shop on Fridays. He isn't so great at picking out colors, but he will be your moral support if you need to rip out a misbehaving project. He is also good at entertaining children as well as lost and wayward non-knitters.
