As Oshawa's original knitting centre,
The Wool Queen has been in business for over 50 years.
Located downtown, access is easy, with parking on the street or behind the building. The store is right on Simcoe Street S, between John and Gibb, on the west side.
Come in, stay a while, and see what's new!!
Interested in helping the less fortunate in our community? Knit and crocheted items are being accepted instore for "Casting Off the Cold". Hats, mitts, scarves, afghans - baby, child or adult, anything you are so inclined to create will be gladly accepted and distributed in the Durham Region as needed.
I also collect leftover yarn and needles for a charity called 'Learning for Hope' located in Peru. The charity teaches the Peruvian children how to knit; this gives them a skill to last a lifetime. Also, if you like, they accept handmade infant hats for the babies living higher up in the mountains who often suffer from frostbite. There is a basket located just inside the door for your donation.
