I have shopped in this store many times in recent years when visiting Atlanta from Chicago. Now that I have relocated back to Atlanta I've inquired several times about ongoing classes and/or drop-in knitting sessions and been totally rebuffed. (I was offered private lessons, but I don't need beginning knitting, by any means.) Apparently it's a very closed group. Really a shame since they are the only shop nearby now that Knitch, Sheepish, and Strings & Strands are closed. They have a nice yarn selection and I'll continue to shop there but will look elsewhere to make new knitting friends.

I loved the variety of yarns in this shop. It had a cozy atmosphere with tall shelves of yarn wrapping around and down the center of the long shop. The staff was friendly and helpful, showing me where to find the yarns I was interested in and letting my wander to my heart's content.

I had a great time with Arline, the shop owner, and several other women in the shop. They did not flinch an eye to see two big ol'boys walk in with one small hispanic man looking at yarn together. They were attentive, politely inquisitive, and were very honored that we had found them on knit map and by recommendations at the SE Mens'Knitting Retreat. I found lots and lots of beautiful yarns in my favorite colorways but didn't splurge as much as I wanted to. Hope to go back tomorrow and rectify that. haha,

I really liked Needle Nook. I do mostly socks and lace, and their selection of laceweight yarn (esp. in luxury fibers, but not outrageously expensive) is wonderful. It's in a long, narrow space and the organization of the space isn't always the best, but the selection is great. LOTS of patterns and books, and not just the most recent to be published like some yarn shops, but also classics and very small publishers.

Two things to note about this place: One is that they also specialize in needlepoint (true needlepoint, wool on canvas, not counted cross-stitch) and have lovely hand-dyed needlepoint yarns and a decent selection of handpainted canvases. Second thing, they are in a neighborhood that is predominantly Jewish, hence the strip mall they are in has lots of Jewish-related businesses (kosher restaurants, a kosher butcher, a Judaica shop with beautiful menorahs and other jewish gifts from all over the world). If you have Jewish friends in Atlanta and/or you are Jewish, you might have reason to visit this mall/neighborhood anyway, so be sure to visit the Needle Nook when you're there!

this shop has good parking. the staff can be nasty if they don't know you but they do have some national brands and some decent yarn if you dig. not a place i'd want to spend any time but good for a drop in and grab.

This is one of the oldest yarn shops in Atlanta and there is a reason it's been in business so long. The staff has always been courteous and helpful to me and the selection is good. If they don't have the color yarn you need or the book you want, they will order it.

I recently visited - stopped in just before closing and found the ladies there to be very kind and helpful. They made me feel very welcome and I will definately visit again when we return to the Atlanta area. They have lots of wonderful yarns - my only regret is that I did not stay longer to shop!

I always make a point of stopping in the shop when I go through Atlanta. Its a fantastic store! Lots and Lots of yarn, patterns, and extras! I just bring something I'm working on and check out what's new and if I have time I sit and knit. Very cozy atmosphere. Micki Ribich, Savannah, Georgia

Needle Nook has a reputation for being kind of nasty to their new knitter customers. However, I think they have gotten the message on that and have had an attitude adjustment. Their selection is much wider than it once was, and they are certainly much friendlier than they used to be. Overall, I do think it is worth giving this place a shot.

This place is wonderful: helpful, friendly, affordable. They even keep toys for kids.
