Great yarn shop and great location! The owner, Tina, is very friendly,helpful and knowledgable. She has a wonderful, but not overwhelming, selection of yarn, and is always willing to order anything you might want but can't find. Tina also hosts fun classes here, and enjoyable knitting groups. I rate this shop highly. If you try it you will like it!

Fabulous yarn store. Owner is very knowledgeable and helpful. Lots of classes. Quality yarns. Several knitting groups to choose from. My favorite is tuesday morning. There is always a fun knit along project. A yarn store to visit for all your yarn needs. Crocheters, knitters are all welcome. Also a once a month spinning group meets there too. I highly recommend this shop.

Visited for the first time as part of the 2014 Rose City Yarn Crawl. Sadly, I was not impressed, especially after having driven several miles to get there. The shop is located in what is clearly a residential unit... attempts to transform it into a retail environment have not been entirely successful. (For example, walking into the garage to view merchandise, inadequate lighting and pieces of cardboard separating yarn on the shelves.) The yarn selection is very basic and although I did purchase a skein of Regia because I liked the color, the group I was with did not find reason to stay beyond having our passport stamped for the Crawl.

The owner of this shop makes it a 5-star LYS. She is very nice and very knowledgable. The first time I went I came right before closing and she actually let me stay a bit late to look through patterns. It's a small space so the selection is limited for that reason, but the yarns that are there are quality. She also has a variety of vintage patterns to look through which is really fun and sets the shop apart from others in the area. It seems that there are several classes and activities to take part in, which is also great, although I haven't had a chance to do so yet so I can't really speak to that. It's a store that I would definitely visit again (and again, and again....)
