about Yarn on Sun Jan 15 16:28:11 -0800 2012

I love this store. The people are very friendly and knowledgable, and have helped me find yarn that I ran out of twice. They also carry a good balance of acrylic and more expensive yarns. I would highly recommend this store to locals or anyone passing through town.

I agree with previous statements that the store has a great selection, but the time I visited I did not feel welcomed or comfortable in the store. As a younger knitter I'm very offended by LYS staff who treat me with suspicion just because of my age. If I decide to come back I hope that I'm not followed around like a potential shoplifter again...

This is a very new yarn store, but already I have been so impressed by the variety of supplies offered there. She carries Knit Picks needles, an interesting specialty yarns, and a great selection of indie dyed yarns. The owner is an absolute delight, she is very friendly and knowledgable. The store is also very inviting and comfortable, and I cannot wait to see how it develops over time.

This store completely surprised me because of their impressive selection of fiber for spinning and they also carry wheels!! I was there on I really busy day so I couldn't really get a feel for the service. I was not particularly impressed by their yarn selection, a lot of it was acrylic and they didn't really carry a lot. But overall this is a great small LYS and I would particularly recommend it to fellow spinners.
