About Peter Patchis Yarns

Peter Patchis Yarns was founded in 1958 by Peter Patchis.  After working for many years as a loom fixer in the area textile mills, he purchased a winding machine and began selling plied yarn to the local mills.  This evolved into a retail operation selling hand knitting and weaving yarns to area crafters.  Several years later his brother Alexander joined the company and eventually became one of the first Brother® knitting machine distributors in the country.

Peter’s son, Peter, joined the company after high school and in 1981 after his father’s retirement assumed day-to-day operation of the business.  In 1989 he moved the company to a larger location in one of the local textile mills where it is still located today.

By buying direct from production mills and dye-houses the company is able to offer a huge variety of natural and synthetic yarns for machine knitting, weaving and hand knitting at discount prices.

The company recently became the exclusive U.S. distributor for Taitexma brand home knitting machines and is in the process of marketing the machines and accessories nationwide.
