Knitmap is now available for Android. Now it's easier than ever to find your local yarn store!
Cozy, with very friendly staff and a versatile, smartly planned selection of yarns.
This is a rare place that welcomes all types and ages of knitters with a gorgeous selection and a wonderfully friendly, helpful owner. It's incredibly welcoming and easy to leave with a smile on your face. I don't often have that experience at yarn shops, so this is worth the trip!
This is one of my top places for yarn selection ever, but the staff always leaves me feeling like I don't belong.
The staff was gossipy and rude to the point where it seriously put off my boyfriend, whose yarn selections they actually SNICKERED at. He happened to love those off-dye-lot skeins of silky malabrigo and he made a fantastic scarf out of them, but whenever I see it, I am reminded of that awful experience. Trust me, it takes a lot to annoy my easygoing partner but he bristles whenever I mention the place.
This was a fiber fanatic's dream studio! Their fabulous yarn selection and a chance to watch the llamas made this knitter supremely happy!
This seemed like it would be lovely and I theoretically fit their target demographic (young yet experienced hip knitter) but I was treated quite coldly despite my enthusiasm. Very disappointing experience, though I left with some seriously dreamy yarn.
Definitely a great store with a huge selection! If you can't find it here, you didn't want it anyway.
A breathtaking selection can be found here and I enjoyed chatting with the owner and staff but I got the impression that I would have been treated differently if I weren't as knowledgable or interested in the best of their wares.
It's as if they don't like customers. I stood in line for so long that the parking meter expired, though it was only one person being rung up. After that impossibly long wait (listening to gossip that lasted long after the transaction was finished) the owner actually snapped at me and acted like I was wasting HER time. "Are you SURE you want to buy that? It's 5 dollars a skein" (shoots me a disbelievingly scathing look like I would never pay that much for yarn) Unbelievable. I wouldn't recommend this store to anyone, ever.
I must have come in here with "ignore me blatantly" tacked to my back, or something.
This isn't a yarn store, it's a disaster. I found the one skein of non-horrendously marked up yarn in the place, paid for it, and never got my card back. After realizing it, I come back to find the store closed. My friends and I knocked on the door and eventually the owner comes out, YELLS AT ME AND CALLS ME A LIAR! Later, after I've called the bank to cancel the card, another employee calls my phone saying she found it after all and apologized for the owner's outburst. I told her that I felt bad for her, having to work for such a person. I haven't left my card somewhere since and I won't go NEAR this store ever again!
