Greetings from Brooklyn General Store!
Brooklyn General Store and brooklyngeneral.com strive to recreate a time when people would center their day around a trip to the general store. It is more than a shop, it is a calm, creatively stimulating, and comforting space, a counterpoint to hurried NYC life. It is a place where the peaceful nature of handwork is loved and respected. It is where country fiber warms the big city and the world wide web. Brooklyn General Store is home to all kinds of natural fiber yarn; new and vintage fabric; knitting and sewing notions; carded fleece fibers; wool felt; woven gifts; buttons; milk paint; natural dyes; sewing and knitting tools; quilting supplies; books on all kinds of crafts; embroidery supplies; vintage quilts and aprons; drop spindles; sewing machines; and many other things. In addition to tools and supplies, we offer a beautifully curated sampling of unique hand made goods. Brooklyn General also offers a wide array of classes, as well as studio time on our classroom machines.
