Welcome to Schoolhouse Press

Schoolhouse Press is a publisher of knitting books, patterns, and instructional videos, the home of Knitting Camp, and a knitting supply business founded in the mid-1950s by British-born master knitter Elizabeth Zimmermann. Today, we are a typical small business located in Wisconsin, USA, run by Elizabeth's family and a few staff members wearing a number of hats. Our focus is on customer service (yes, it's still possible to reach us by phone--800-968-5648) and supplying knitters with books, patterns, wool, and tools we use and endorse. Learn More.
