About

 

Lisa and MelissaWhen Melissa Clulow first picked up a set of knitting needles back in 2008, something just, well, clicked. Suddenly, evenings on the sofa became productive and an enduring passion was born. Meanwhile, across town, Lisa Di Fruscia had turned to knitting while her newborn son napped afternoons away in the car (his preferred location). The two newly minted yarn lovers, hooked on the creative and stress-relieving properties of the craft, soon met at a local knit night, became fast friends, and, over coffee and stockinette, daydreamed about the ideal knit shop.

Casting off their previous lives in non-profit management and teaching, Melissa and Lisa opened Espace Tricot in 2010. As much a gathering place as a retail space, the shop's inspiring atmosphere caters to fiber lovers of all ages and skill levels, attracting a loyal clientele. The store stocks a large and carefully curated selection of yarns and fibers, notions, accessories, books and patterns. Espace Tricot also offers many classes and workshops where new knitters, crocheters, and spinners can get started and more advanced customers can hone their skills.

Espace Tricot is conveniently located in the heart of Notre-Dame-de-Grace in Montreal and is easily accessible by public transportation. Free and metered street parking is available just outside the door and there are lovely places to eat and shop along Monkland Avenue.
