about Warrnambool Uniform and Wool Centre on Wed Sep 12 00:00:19 +0000 2007

Packed to the rafters with a huge range of yarns. They have a number of patterns in leaflet form. Also, a range of cross stitch and embroidery.

It is not easy to browse, because there is so much in there, but most of the people working there are happy to help and pull out bags of yarn, and let you dither about colours a bit.

Most of them have useful advice about things too.

They are really a fabric shop (a brilliant one), but cashed in on the knitting thing. They've just got in a whole lot of Rowan summer yarns and have a good range of other things. It is slightly expensive, but the one I go to most frequently because it is easy to get to. They have a basic range of needles, hooks and notions. They have a couple of luxury yarns.

I love this place, and if only it were closer, I'd go there all the time... maybe it is just as well it is not closer. They have addis and lots of delicious yarn. Because I am running short of space for stash and can't buy quantity, I have been enjoying coming here and buying little bits of quality. They also have those great Glorafilia tapestries and material for quilting.

The staff I have met are really friendly and helpful.

The things that keep me going back to my favourite local shop are the beautiful light, the great quality of their yarns and needles and the friendly staff. They understand that the yarn is going to take you by the hand and lead you out the door, so they are never pushy for a sale, they just let it happen.

There are lots of knit swatches in all the different colours and garments knit up as well. They have a good range of pattern books and a few bits and pieces for other crafts, too. All good quality.

I think they've closed down, now.
