390 1st ST SW STE 2D, Bandon, OR

The idea for Stranded by the Sea was to create a living room in town, for knitting together with others, and to make available the finest yarns and books on both knitting and crocheting technique. Beyond this I was lucky enough to find a wonderful room in the historic Coast Guard (now Port of Bandon) building, with full-spectrum lighting and five windows facing the Bandon harbor, where the Coquille River flows into the Pacific. My yarns include Rowan, Shibui, Manos, Noro, The Fibre Company and more. Many of these are cashmere or have cashmere content, since that is my greatest weakness. With knitting and crocheting, there is always something new to learn, a new pattern to try, a new way to cast on, bind off, a new stitch pattern or color to try. Stranded by the Sea is meant to be a place for this kind of activity. There are open skeins of all our yarns for testing ideas, an ever-growing reference library of techniques and patterns, comfortable seating, work surfaces, and free wi-fi.


All weekend
Also happening in Bandon the weekend of the yarn crawl is our annual Cranberry Festival, which means a few more added attractions to our town, and on Saturday morning a parade. The parade closes off my street until 11 am, so I will be arriving at my shop by 9 before the street is closed. If you wish to come be stranded with me for the parade time, I can promise you if not the most exciting parade ever, a lot of open skeins of yarn for test knitting.
