A Brief History     For nearly eighteen years, our small seaside town of Pacific Grove was home to the local yarn shop, Monarch Knitting & Quilts.  After that shop owner's retirement in 2013, it was purchased by Ann Patterson and given a fresh start as simply, Monarch Knitting. Today, our shop stays busy with members of our local community and visitors from across the world. We appreciate your business and your support, and we look forward to serving you for many years to come.
