About Us


The Stix Chx are excited to share our love of all things yarn by offering classes, hosting events and venturing out for field trips. We love learning about our local "fiber shed" and love talking about where our yarn comes from. It’s important to us to foster a strong fiber arts community where folks can come together to discuss and share fiber-related stories. 

The Stix community is made up of yarn lovers of diverse ages and abilities. We aim to create a safe space where everyone feels valued and supported in their crafting endeavors. This includes providing space for all people across differences of race, age, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, political affiliation and socioeconomic background.  

In 2004, Stix opened in downtown Bozeman on South Tracy Avenue underneath Main Street.  A ball of yarn stationed at the top of the stairs (at one time deemed the largest yarn ball in the United States!) served as a beacon to draw knitters down the stairs. Our basement location served as the headquarters of the online magazine, Tangled, which published both knit and crochet designs. In 2012, Stix moved up to West Main Street where locals and tourists alike found us and our reputation grew for carrying local yarns as well as a great selection of nationally known yarns. In 2020, in response to our customers’ need for parking, Stix moved to West Mendenhall Street during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our new location is light and airy with a large classroom and windows to gaze at the mountains that surround us.
