Visited them recently on the 2011 PDX Knit Crawl! My sister and I visited all twenty stores in two days! This was unfortunately my only disappointing store. After getting lost with KnitMap's Directions (they still had them in their old location in Hillsboro), I called the store and received directions that while accurate, where pretty vague and used landmarks that weren't things that a non-local would have any idea where they were. The lady on the phone had said they knew that KnitMap had the wrong address and were in the process of updating, but I was surprised they weren't more on top of it. I know if I was a knit shop owner during a knit crawl, I would have checked and double checked the information. Yes, I know as a consumer I could have triple checked my info, but with twenty stores on the agenda, and knitmap being suggested by the PDX Yarn Crawl site, I made an assumption.

They were pretty unwelcoming, and even made it seem like one needed to make a purchase to even enter the free Knit Crawl raffle. They did have their own raffle, if you made a purchase, but that's beyond the point. The shop is not ADA accessible from the front entrance, in fact the stairs were pretty steep. There were also boxes of yarn in various states of unpacking, and a lady just sitting behind the counter, not really helping customers (we weren't the only people in there at the time)

The selection was pretty limited and the yarns that weren't like, or the exact same, as I've seen at Craft Warehouse were very pricey, and don't get me wrong, I will drop some cash on yarn, but really didn't feel like these would have been worth the asking price. I have no award to give them other than "Most Remote", and while if I lived way out here, I could see enjoying this store, I would not return here given my first impression.

Though I was told the name is an homage to the new owner's mother who passed away, and who had the shop in Hillsboro of the same name (some information the lovely hobby shop next to the old location gave me), does anyone else notice the initials? It made me loathe to try the shop, and I wish I hadn't.
