about Elegant Stitches on Mon Mar 31 23:49:30 -0700 2008

Nice bright shop with lots of lovely yarns and lots of knit-up models. Staff was somewhat helpful. Be careful of in-store kitted up projects. They're sometimes dreadfully short of yarn. Be prepared to do your own math or go back for more. She does such a beautiful job of blending the fiber selection that it's still worthwhile, but know that her kitted up projects will wind up costing a bit more than expected.

about The Quarter Stitch on Mon Mar 31 23:29:10 -0700 2008

I will NEVER forget my one visit to this store. I was in NOLA in 2001 to drve my son to college at Tulane. I only had a day or two to stay, and researched places to visit ahead of time. I literally ran through the Quarter to get there well before she closed and breathed a deep sigh of relief when the knob turned and I stepped in. The shop keeper had been facing the back of the shop and was on the phone, but rapidly turned around to snap angrily, "We're CLOSED!!" Flabbergasted, I pointed out it was still 25 minutes before her posted closing time. She bared her teeth at me! "The register is CLOSED OUT; COME BACK TOMORROW!!" Um, yeah. As IF.

I had a better experience with Connie in Metiarie, RIP. If you've ever heard of HER reputation, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Nice yarns, books and tools. Very interesting building. Shopkeeper was rather indifferent, no matter HOW far I'd traveled.

Really a down-home friendly place. Lovely yarns and tools. Not outrageously priced. Great coffee, and extremely friendly shop owners. A yarn shop I could call home if I lived a smidge closer. An easy drive from Fayetteville, and worth the trip!
