This is a store with a great selection, BUT the store is way too small for this great & large selection. It is a narrow store & with all the selection, you have to make sure that you don't knock anything over if you are carrying a bag. The last time I was there (8/07), there was yarn displayed clear to the ceiling. The owner was helping a customer knit at the table in the back which makes navigating through the back of the store VERY difficult. I sat on the floor to look through a bin of sock yarn & kept bumping into the other customers purse that was sitting on the floor. I can't imagine how crowded the store is when there is an actual class going on. Other than the size issue, the store is great!
This is a yarn lovers heaven. This store is super HUGE & has a great variety. The only thing negative I would say is that when I bring my daughter in (who is 4 & very well behaved) the owner used to follow us around like she was making sure that my daughter was not going to mess anything up or break anything. I have several friends that have said the same thing. One time she actually "nicely" scolded my daughter because she was getting too close to something....I was standing even closer. I flat out told her that my daughter was fine & wasn't bothering anything....and if she has any problems with my daughter to ask me to talk to my daughter & not have her disciplining her herself.
This comes from a woman who has a special spot in her store for her 2 dogs in a small area that is blocked off with kiddie gates. Isn't she afraid that her doggies may get loose & mess up her store?
I have been back since & she seemed to have mellowed out & actually didn't follow me around. I was pretty surprised. The rest of the employees are great!
I really like this store. Not too big and not too small. I learned to knit at this store several years ago & have since taken several of their classes. They offer a very wide variety of classes & products. I would definitely recommend this store to any knitter.
I received my prize today & LOVE the Desert Treasure Colorway! Thanks so much Stacy!
I think it is a great idea!
