I was in San Fransisco recently and made a point to visit this lovely shop! The staff was wonderful and the store has a wonderful selection! If you are looking for that special shop this is it!

This is a cute little shop! As the other reviewers mentioned, they do carry a lot of stock without making it hard to turn around. I was especially impressed with their selection of bulky yarns and how friendly they are. However, they don't have spinning supplies as this entry indicates.

This is one of my favorite yarn stores in the Bay Area. Talk about maximizing square footage! Their selection is incredible and they always have enough yarn for the large projects I like to do such as baby blankets, throws, long jackets etc. I've always found the staff to be knowledgable and helpful. I understand that Grace's niece Amanda now runs the shop and I hope she'll keep Atelier thriving for another 20 years the way Grace did.

This yarn store is just lovely. I simply cannot believe how much inventory they pack in there! They have such an incredible selection that it's almost overwhelming. I was specifically looking for sock yarn that day and discovered a boatload! I found the staff to be so sweet and lovely. The young girl who helped me on a Friday (I've forgotten her name) was absolutely charming. I will definitely be back.

this was the only yarn shop i visited twice on my epic san francisco yarn crawl. the staff is exceedingly friendly, there were lots of local and specialty yarns, there was a fantastic book selection... i was very pleased. i actually brought my husband with me on my return trip just to show him how awesome the store was. i was so pleased that i still have the bag my purchases were put in.

now i feel like a dork.
