Found the selection to be good in the basic yarns and notions. The shop is crammed full and cluttered which made it hard to see everything. A woman came out of the back to greet us and made small talk for a bit and I felt that had I been looking for something specific she would have been willing to help me find it. They also carry quite a bit of fabric for quilting/sewing. This seems to be more about selling raw materials than a gathering spot as I did not see an area to sit and work on projects, no tea or homey amenities. Certainly a serviceable yarn shop however and if you needed supplies, I would say you would be well-served.

I just moved to Astoria and hadn't heard there was a yarn store, but then stumbled upon this place while walking downtown (it's right across from the health foods store...). In the windows there is a bunch of fabric, so I thought "How much yarn could they have?". Well...not a ton, but what they do have is the good stuff. At least, the stuff I want when I go to my LYS: Cascade 220, Ultra Alpaca, a nice selection of sock yarns, locally sourced/dyed gorgeous alpaca, etc. While not a huge selection, I'm soooo glad to see the workhorse yarns that I use frequently plus some goodies for special knit occasions. Certainly worth a stop if you're in town since it's so convenient (on the main drag) and a blessing if you're local.

A caveat: I didn't get greeted until I was right under their noses and it's a little claustrophobic, not the place to go if you would like help finding something or advice or a nice place to sit and knit.
