This was a nice shop, but is more of a felting crafting store, not knitting and crochet. It would be great for kids to learn crafting. The only improvement I would make is the lighting was very dark and dull inside the store, so it was hard to see the product that was available.

Visited them recently on the 2011 PDX Knit Crawl! My sister and I visited all twenty stores in two days! We were greeted the second we came in, which on a day like that, is amazing! They had a great needle felting demonstration and though they are not a "yarn" store, the fiber they did have was very nice! I liked that they had other crafts, since I'm not JUST a knitter.

I give them my "Most Mommies and Daddies" award. I may be childless at the moment, but I would have a blast taking a child there. The kids surrounding the table were involved and really into their projects and it was great to see them being nurtured. I love the truly geeky needle felted art on the walls, as I too am a fan of Captain Jean Luc Picard!

This store is really cool. It's definitely more of a craft store than a yarn store, but they do have yarn, and lots of felting stuff and other neato crafts.

And to be fair, Katherine, I can't do 3 x 7.90 in my head very fast either, haha.

Katherine I'm sorry about your experience there. I no longer have an employee and appreciate your feedback.

went in to buy some yarn and was treated indifferently by the clerk. when i did go up to purchase my items she took almost ten minutes to find the calculator (apparently 3 X $7.90 was too tough to do in her head). nice enough place but i won't be going back.

This is more of a craft store than a knitting shop. There is not much for knitters at all, although it seems to be a happening place for felting and beeswax.
