Welcome to The Fifth Stitch



Hello! I’m Ellen Upp, owner and stitcher in residence at The Fifth Stitch. We’ve been in business for forty years now and we know yarn.

Summer is finally here! Warm weather  with its knitting and crocheting on the front porch means not as much time for staying around the shop. Our summer hours, which last from Memorial Day to Labor Day are: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 to 5:00, and Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday by chance or appointment. If you need another time, call ahead to 419.576.2628 or 419.784.4028, or drop by and see if you find us looking for that crochet hook we were sure we had when we left the shop. Come, visit, and enjoy the cool of the yarn shop in the heat of summer.

Don’t forget our Monday night sock group. Every Monday night from 6:30 to 9:00 we gather around the big table in the back of the store to knit and swap stories.

Please feel free to browse our site for all your stitching needs. We’d be happy to help you with any questions you might have or send you the yarn or pattern.



We’re currently working on our website so please excuse our virtual dust. More yarn is coming soon!

Keep on Knitting and Continue the Crochet!
