I'm a regular at Fun With Fiber, taking classes, going to sit-and-knits, stopping for help. The staff is great. The customers are fun and friendly (we're actually a bit raucous!). The selection of yarns and patterns is tremendous!! I highly recommend that you stop in and check it out. Once you do, you'll never go anywhere else!

When I visit the Detroit area on business, I usually hear about how bad the economy is. I stopped into this little yarn store recently, and it was a brief and refreshing break.

It was a little tricky finding the store since it is around the corner and does not actually face out onto 12 Mile, but I persisted and eventually found it.

The first thing I noticed is that it was bright, definitely the brightest yarn store I have ever visited. There are windows on 2 walls. It really was great to look at yarn colors in natural and abundant light.

There was the usual crowd of women knitting around a big table. They all seemed to be having a good time. I was greeted when I came into the store, and the workers checked with me a couple of times, but for the most part I was left alone, which was just fine with me.

The store is not huge but has a very good selection, and the layout is easy to figure out. It helped that I was really just waiting for some yarn to catch my eye and not looking for anything specific.

The only little hiccup was when I needed some straight needles. This isn't the first time I've been at a store where the needle selection was not satisfactory. I happen to think any great yarn store needs to have plenty of needle options. At this store on this day the owner made it clear that ordering more needles was somewhere vague on her list of priorities.

Overall, though, this seems like a place where people enjoy spending time, and next time I am in the Detroit area I will definitely set aside some time for a return visit.
