Very nice shop! Good selection of brand name yarns. It has a knitting area in the front of the store (table & chairs) and a nice living room kind of area in the back of the store where knitters are welcomed to sit and knit. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but there is a small parking lot behind the building that one can use. When I went to visit the store, it was very busy. That is a good sign. :)

Awesome, cozy atmosphere. Owner is happy to help, but not pushy. Everybody is really nice. Amazing yarn selection, and really good prices. Wonderful for Fiber Fanatics, because you can simply browse, both their yarn and pattern selections. Whether you knit, crochet, or just love the feel of yarns, this store will offer you one the best knitting shop experiences ever!

Most likely one of the best retail experiences ever. Friendly co-owners, knowledgeable & patient staff, and fantastic customers. You should be made to feel welcome to simply browse, or better yet, sit down and knit. Very supportive vibe. Fair and transparent policies about purchasing yarn, asking for help and such.

I love this shop. Parking is (usually) VERY convenient in the lot behind the store off 22? 23? st. Just pass the store and make the first left you can - make sure to drive into the entrance of the lot, the exit has spike strips! ;) They have a wide variety of yarns, prices are very reasonable, lots of wool/silk blends (my favorite.) I'd like to see a greater variety of laceweight, but what can you do? :) Very nice staff too, make sure to say hi to Gracie!

Great shop, great selection of quality yarn. Very friendly and they stayed out of the way until I needed something. I will definately continue to shop here!

Loved this shop - very friendly without being overbearing. Great selection - beautiful yarns. Love their unique yarns from local dyers.
