At Conversational Threads we are widely recognized for our high standards when it comes to knitting, crocheting and fiber art-related products. People come to us from all over to experience our unique and hard-to-find yarns, fibers, needles and notions, and our outstanding service to every customer who drops by our shop.

We are temporarily closed according to the Governor's Stay-At-Home order for Lehigh County that began at 8PM March 25th.

Even though we are closed to the public, there is a lot going on in the shop!

I am checking the shop and retrieving messages and mail every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Noon to 4PM. You can contact me at the shop by phone during those hours.

I am offering no-contact pickup and I am shipping orders as well.  We have free USA shipping for orders over $50. 

Watch our Instagram and Facebook feeds to see new things arriving in the shop while we are closed, or yarn/pattern suggestions I put up for your isolation inspiration.  

You can email me - cindy@conversationalthreads.com - or send me a message via Facebook or Instagram if you see something you would like to have shipped.  You can also arrange a time to do some virtual shopping via Facebook or Instagram video messaging.

We appreciate very much all the wonderful support we have received from our customers during this difficult time! We miss you all very much and will have lots of new goodies for you when we re-open!


Your Local Yarn Shop

Located in the center of the charming borough of Emmaus, PA, since 2009, a straight 2 miles off the Lehigh Street (Exit 57) of Interstate 78, Conversational Threads is a yarn and fiber shop unlike any other. Our cozy home-like shop is filled with your favorite basics such as Cascade 220 as well as an abundant supply of gorgeous yarns from independent dyers such as Olann.ie, Life In The Long Grass, Hue Loco and Barnyard Knits, just to name a few.

All of our over 100 premier brands of the finest all-natural yarns have been carefully selected to be of the highest quality and are offered at excellent prices.  Let the members of our friendly and knowledgeable staff help you to choose your next project, whether you are a beginner or a bit more advanced, and know that they are happy to provide you with assistance in finding yarn substitutions or navigating through the maze that is Ravelry. If, however, you wish to browse undisturbed, you can be assured that you will feel free to do so.


It is highly recommended that if you wish to stay at our shop for 2 hours or more, especially if you are taking one of our classes, that you park in one of the Wells Fargo spots indicated in the picture. Wells Fargo is agreeably allowing it. Please do not park in the spots directly behind the back door of the Wells Fargo when the bank is open.
