About spinnerknitter

I've been knitting for more than 35 years...and have loved every moment!
Hubby and I love to travel, which for me revolves around finding all the yarn shops I can visit while on a trip!

about Jessica Knits on Tue Jun 03 08:07:41 -0700 2008

My husband and I were there last summer (6/07) for business. I searched out and fell in love with this shop. FULL of great yarn varieties...excellent selection! They were VERY busy while I was there but observed some great customer service. I make a sizeable purchase and found the closing sale to be as friendly and wonderful as what I had observed for others. I REALLY hope I get the opportunity to return out west so I can visit again!

about A Good Yarn on Tue Jun 03 08:15:31 -0700 2008

Lorraine is truly a wonderful lady, I've visited several times. Yes, the shop is very small...I just hope that one day she'll have a bigger shop. I love that she carries the Blue Heron Yarn line.

about Earth Guild on Thu Jun 05 15:09:47 -0700 2008

This is a great "everything" store, and a necessary stop when I'm in town. From dyestuff to extra bobbins for my wheel...they have it all! Friendly staff too!

about Orchardside Yarn Shop on Sat Jun 07 15:13:50 -0700 2008

This is a MUST stop for many reasons! Carole is a FANTASTIC lady who goes out of her way to help anyone who comes in. Her selection is fabulous. On Saturdays she holds a Farmer's market where you can purchase local produce along with your yarn!

about The Knitting Basket on Tue Jun 03 08:35:10 -0700 2008

Nice shop, a little cramped and hard to find (Hubby drove me around for about 20 minutes looking for it...nearly lost his patience) but well worth the stop. The sales staff is very friendly.

about Knitting Sisters on Tue Jun 03 08:33:03 -0700 2008

There's no simpler way to put it than...I LOVE THIS SHOP!!

about Yarn Paradise on Tue Jun 03 08:20:41 -0700 2008

Koigu...Koigu...Koigu!! The yarn selection is FABULOUS. The staff is very friendly and go the extra mile to find you what you need. Wish I lived closer...

about Smoky Mountain Spinnery on Tue Jun 03 15:25:13 -0700 2008

Being a knitter and a spinner this shop covers it all!! Nancy offers SO much in her shop to cover all my fiber needs, and she's a WONDERFUL person too! She even let me HOLD $300 worth (exactly 1 oz) of Vicuna fiber! This shop offers it all...including her Hubby's shop at the other end, I love to fish as well! I will return again and again!

about Magpie Yarn on Tue Jun 03 08:02:15 -0700 2008

Beautiful store, love the color layout! The store owner was VERY busy at the time I was there but took the time to offer friendly customer service at checkout. I will make this a stop on my next visit to the area!

about Knitting up a Storm on Tue Sep 16 17:17:09 -0700 2008

Great selection, very friendly.

about Geez Leweez Needle Work on Tue Jun 03 08:22:13 -0700 2008

I feel they are geared more to the needlepointer.

about The Yarn Lounge on Tue Jun 03 08:31:43 -0700 2008

The first shop I visit when I'm in town! Stewart & Melanie are fantastic...always warm & friendly. Great yarn selection. One of these days I'll be there for Knit Nite!!

about The Fiber Factory on Wed Sep 17 17:04:41 -0700 2008

I came in while they were in the process of moving (6/2007), not much to see, everyone was really busy but it sure seems like it's going to be a great place for all things fiber!

about Knit-N-Purl on Wed Sep 17 12:09:00 -0700 2008

SUPER service...AWESOME atmosphere...a MUST when in Myrtle Beach! I'll be going back again and again for sure, when I'm in town!
