Lovely store; staff very kind and enthusiastic about answering questions or quite content to let you browse if that's all you need. Great book and notions selection in addition to the yarns (which are lovely; I was trying to keep from looking too closely, as my stash has grown beyond my self-imposed limits.) I couldn't keep from buying a book, though!

This is a great store, with a wide selection of high-quality, mid-priced yarns, and a few pricier ones. Sales are good, too. Teaching staff is amazingly great, and a broad range of classes is offered. Owner seeks input from customers and tailors retreats and classes around expressed interest and new patterns/techniques/books.

I was amazed a the size of the place. There is a big selection of yarn and plenty of patterns. Lovely set up and very friendly to male customers wether they knit or crochet. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. This is another must go place in the area.

The store cat's name is Bastet, the Egyptian cat goddess. Store carries a huge range of Crystal Palace Yarns and will special order, too. Free wi-fi. Clerks are super-helpful; two women who came in as I was browsing asked for help learning how to knit in the round so they could make baby hats. Right after looking up a pattern for me on Ravelry, the clerk popped over and gave them an intro to using circs.
