The daughter of an interior designer and a real estate broker, owner Allison Isaacs learned to knit and needlepoint at an early age. After a successful career in healthcare, she began indulging her love for knitting by selling her patterns and handknits in local stores. She recently gave into fate and picked up her needles full time, becoming the driving force behind the opening of ImagiKnit.
ImagiKnit opened on the corner of 18th and Sanchez in the Fall of 2002. Two years later, with yarn filling every nook and cranny, the store grew, taking over the storefront next door. ImagiKnit is known for it's amazing selection, satisfying the knit and crochet needs of Bay Area residents and beyond.
In the summer of 2021, Allison retired and sold the shop to her longtime store manager, Katelyn Randolph. Today, ImagiKnit is San Francisco's yarn destination. We welcome crafters from all corners of the world into this warm and wonderful community. We specialize in yarn of all fibers, thicknesses and textures. If all you need is the right tool for your next knitting or crochet project, we stock a huge range of sizes and brands. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are always on hand to help you find the perfect yarn for your project. Be sure to check out our constantly rotating schedule of classes so we can welcome you to the world of yarn or teach you something new.
In 2024 we embarked on yet another exciting adventure and announced our expansion to the East Bay! ImagiKnit will be opening a second location in the Elmwood area of Berkeley at 2921 College Avenue, the former home of Sweet Dreams Toy Store.
