From the moment I stepped in the shop for the first time I felt welcomed. The owner (Chris) was very attentive and so were her customers, who come to knit there as a group. I have been to other knit shops, but this one is the tops for me.

I went in to look around while I was in town. It's clean, open, and very colourful. There's a nice selection of seating. I liked the selection of yarn, and most of it was more than marginally less expensive than the same yarn sold in my local shops. There were a few women knitting in the shop when I walked in--all were friendly and talked to me about my purchases/plans/projects/etc. My yarn was wound for free, which I always appreciate.

I plan to go back when I'm in town and in need of yarn.

I called to find out the store hours, and when she (Chris) answered the phone with an exasperated sigh, I asked if the store was open. "Sort of." No inflection, no human response, no explanation for this inappropriate answer. She then explained that she would be in for a while, and I could come by. I thought that was a good response. Not so much. When I arrived, explained that as someone who has never knitted before, I had to bring a project to a class I was going to the following day. She looked at my pattern and showed me what I "needed." HA! She spent the rest of the time berating her son, who was not working to her satisfaction, and she had to talk about him to us as we waited, looking uncomfortable. She sold me, (because I didn't know any better), extremely expensive yarn AND needles. When I arrived at class with the Rolls Royce of expensive circular needles, (THE most expensive available), and painfullly expensive yarn, my knitting teacher gasped. She asked "who did this to you?! You told her you are new to knitting? I feel like you were taken advantage of." I explained where I went. Five knitters in my class nodded knowingly, and we exchange stories all the time. Chris is abrasive, at best, and just looks overwhelmed by people walking in to her store. I like their spot, and their pricey inventory, but I just hate working with her. Unfortunately, she is impossible to avoid, and her attitude is horrible. I'm told her classes are just a waste of money, and that she treats people like they are stupid for not knowing how to do what she already does.

Stopped by yesterday while doing part of the pre-Stitches yarn crawl with a couple of friends.
It's a nice space that feels modern and cozy at the same time. They do indeed have a wall of Cascade (which is nice, you can see all of the colors at once without digging around in bins) and several yarns I hadn't seen before.
Not every store can stock every yarn, or even every brand but I think they had a nice selection here. They seemed a little light on the bulky yarns, most of what I remember seeing was worsted. They had some notions and needles but it wasn't an overwhelming amount.
The owner was welcoming and very helpful, she even turned on the store's small tv for our youngest crawler. I'd be happy to have this store around the corner and I'm sure I'll be back in the the future. Arlington Heights has a nice downtown area, like Naperville only less smooshed together, and this store is a good addition to it.

Will give it a chance to grow. Too new but had lots of cascade if that is what you are looking for....

I can tell it's still setting up but it's a great space. Large tables for classes, a WIDE selection of class offerings. Not a TON of selection, but it is still early. There is a WALL of cascade 220 though, and I love that.
