Once Around is an art and craft store in Mill Valley, California. We are dedicated to supporting the creative aspirations of the local community. We know our customers have many interests and we believe that some of the most exciting creative discoveries come from experimentation, so you'll find a little bit of a lot of things, from fine art to knitting, stamping to paper craft, stationery to sewing notions.

We offer fine art materials from some of the best suppliers in the world, including  Sennelier, Winsor & Newton, Fabriano, Isabey and Golden, but we also pride ourselves on offering quality products at accessible prices to encourage you to try something new. We also carry a huge assortment of art and craft-related books.


If you are on our email list, you will be the first to know about our generous periodic sales.

We offer onsite classes for adults and kids, including a free drop-in Knit Nite incorporating our very own Knitting4Peace Pod! We also host art and craft summer camps.

We order art materials for professional artists at prices that will rival or beat out online and big stores. Call us on 415.326.5217 to find out if we can source your favorite products.

And we are bringing more local products into the store, such as yarn from Black Mountain Farm in Nicasio. You can see a photo from our customer field trip to the farm here!


Community Online.

Once Around offers the following FREE Zoom "craft-alongs" or "bees"; these are not formal classes, just hosted opportunities for our community to meet via Zoom with our team and each other in informal groups based around different art and craft themes. 


Before the session, make sure you have signed up for a FREE Zoom account at

Yay, for all you Knit Night fans who have been missing hanging out with the amazing Tisha, we are continuing to meet in the format of the day...ZOOM.


The Knit Knit craft-along on Zoom is not a class, it's a knit and crochet "bee" with a teacher. Tisha will be working on a knitting or crochet project and chatting to those of you who want to tune in and knit or crochet together and get help with your projects.
