about Romni Wools on Wed Apr 01 14:20:57 -0700 2009

Wow, what a store! HUGE selection in both yarns and patterns! Takes some real searching to find somethings. Staff - some are helpful and some are not! It's a great resource though, and a wonderful place to find out-of-print patterns and hard-to-find items.

about London Yarns on Wed Apr 01 13:52:01 -0700 2009

I enjoyed visiting this little store - great selection and lots of patterns. Some interesting accessories and some hard-to-find items, too. Definatly a place to visit again!

about Len's Mill Store on Wed Apr 01 14:04:51 -0700 2009

Nice selection of cheaper yarns. Staff aren't very knowledgable or helpful. Lots of samples to look at for inspiration!

about Wool N' Things on Wed Apr 01 14:09:57 -0700 2009

LOVELY shop! Staff were fantastic - not pushy but available to help. Lots of selection, some hard-to-find yarns. Plenty of patterns to go with them!

about Ariadne on Wed Apr 01 14:12:09 -0700 2009

lovely shop! very friendly staff, but not pushy at all. A lovely place to sit and knit. Great selection of yarns :) A place to visit again.

about The Black Lamb on Wed Apr 01 14:02:17 -0700 2009

I was disappointed with service and with selection. Called to verify that something was in stock before going - got there and was told they hadn't carried it for MONTHS. My children were spoken to harshly, also. Not a place that meets my needs.

about London-Wul on Wed Apr 01 13:59:08 -0700 2009

beautiful shop, wonderful staff, even my children were made to feel very welcome. Very nice selection in yarns and kits. I wish we lived closer so I could visit more often!!

about Briggs & Little Wollen Mills Ltd. on Wed Apr 01 13:57:20 -0700 2009

cute little store - selection is limited to ONLY briggs and little yarns, good deals on seconds. Very nice staff!

about Storeybook's Spinning a Yarn on Wed Apr 01 13:50:00 -0700 2009

I was very disappointed with this store. I called ahead for a price but the actual price of the item was double what I was quoted. I was followed around the store by the owner and spoken to like I was clueless about knitting and yarns. I will not be returning.

Nice shop, good selection, friendly staff :)

about The Purple Purl on Sun Apr 19 13:22:51 -0700 2009

Just visited this store for the first time last week. I was very impressed with now large and spacious the store is - with a lovely area to look through books or knit. Very good selection of pattern books and wonderful yarns. I was a bit frustrated that much of what I was interested in was not priced, and I stood for about 7 mins at the counter to ask for a price, but wasn't helped by the staff (who seemed really friendly to every else, they just didn't acknowledge me at all). I eventually gave up and walked out to make my purchase elsewhere.

about Lettuce Knit on Sun Apr 19 13:30:21 -0700 2009

Lovely little store - lots of unique yarns and accessories. I was not greeted when I walked into the store, but I am quite happy to be left alone to browse. I had a question, though, and was helped right away with a smile and warmth. I enjoyed my visit and will plan to return next time I'm in the area.

about The Knit Cafe on Sun Apr 19 13:35:27 -0700 2009

I visited this store and clearly came on the wrong day. There was a "high tea event" happening (apparently it happens regularly), and tables and chairs filled the entire, small store. I could SEE some yarns, but couldn't get near it to touch or buy it. Not many patterns for purchase, good selection of accessories but most weren't priced which I find frustrating. The staff seemed rather put out that I was "shopping" and they were anxious to get back to their tea and knitting, so she stood and watched me as I shopped which I found a little creepy. Perhaps going on a different day would have been a better/different experience, but from what I did encounter I'm not anxious to go back.
