Store Message

Changes for 2018: Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits.  We have accepted all the knit orders we can get done for 2018, you can still place an order, but it will not be processed until 2019.  Merry Christmas!

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 45 years of operating The Knit Tree, in 2018, I will be semi-retiring.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer and by taking limited orders on garments (camo jackets, vests, and pants).  I will keep all the Winona Camo, the Native American, and Yarn, Kits and Patterns categories. I will be updating the online store to reflect these changes and look forward to hearing from you in the coming years.
Have a Great Day, Sharon
