reasonable, but disorganized selection. the selection of yarn and accessories is overpriced, but they can get away with that being the only "high" end yarn store in the area. I have found the staff to be dismissive and disinterested until you approach the cash register. the store could use a sweeping and air freshener. avoid shopping on their group stitch and bitch nights, unless you like crawling over the very cliquey "regulars" to look at the merchandise.

I've only shopped at Athena Fibers twice because I live too far away to get there regularly, but I really loved both experiences. The staff were helpful, but not hovering. The selection of yarn is outstanding, and the environment is wonderful. There are tons of notions and needles to meet every need, and I could wander for hours in the store and not see everything. Both times I shopped here I was invited to Knit Night, but I couldn't return for it because I was leaving the same day. I hope to one day make it and meet other SD knitters. Wonderful shop!

I liked this store a lot. It has SO much stuff and it's reasonably priced. My only complaint was that it was kind of unorganized.

What an awesome store - there was nifty fiber/yarn tucked away in every room. I didn't have time to browse patterns, but will have to do so next time! The staff were very helpful, friendly and chilled-out. Prices were competitive/comparable with online stores and my usual LYS.

The only non-five-star rating I would give would be to organization, where I would give three stars. Great selection of yarns, but it was somewhat difficult to casually browse because there didn't seem to be clear divisions of where a given weight or brand of yarn was, at least for what my needs were. I was looking through lace- and fingering-weight yarn and had to check multiple bins/racks in 2 rooms of the store where those weights were mixed together or side-by-side with worsted weight.

Without a doubt the best yarn shop I have ever been in. The selection is good and the pattern selection is outstanding. The service is great, the owners are always there but never in your face. They are incredibly knowledgeable and non-judgmental. There classes are a pleasure and so are the dogs that are often at the shop.

I was really impressed with this store. Reminded me of the stores from my childhood. The day we went, there was even a lemonade stand outside. Very nice people.
