About Us

The Wool Bin is a place of history, creativity and enduring friendship for generations of Oakville knitters.

We are a landmark and destination shop for those from out of town as well.

Our most recent incarnation in the vibrant and dynamic Kerr St neighbourhood really does feel like home as we enter our 10th year in business at this location.

We are a family owned and operated business with a small long standing staff that have approximately a million years of combined knitting experience!

We are happy and enthusiastic about being able to offer a wide and diverse range of knitting related products, a rainbow of texture and colour in yarns and great advice and guidance through our classes or on the spot advice and help.

Come see us today!


The most precious gift is to share our love of knitting with others.

Our classes are small and intimate, you’ll be sure to learn a lot and make new friends along the way.

Here is a brief description of what we offer on a regular, recurring basis for more details and registration, please call us at the shop at 905-845-9512.

Professional Finishing Class

Now that we can knit, what’s next? Many knitters struggle with seaming, picking up sts, and while they can knit quite well they lack the skills to finish a garment. In these 3- 2 hour sessions you will learn many techniques for completing a professional looking garment. Hella has many years of experience and very high standards for finished work. We know your pride of workmanship will increase dramatically after these sessions.

Cost: $105.00 plus tax for 3โ€”2hour sessions.

Time: Monday 6-8
