Small. Tiny. But they have laid it out in such a way that it's still useable.

I like the table in the middle of the room. Several times I've been here and people were at the table knitting and chatting.

Service is hit or miss. I've been in a couple times and not even gotten a greeting, and other times I've gone in and they are extremely friendly and helpful.

It's just too small to be a very useful regular store. If I'm in the area already, I'll go in. I'll probably even buy something. But I won't go out of my way to get there.

No spinning supplies that I noticed.

A nice shop. Good selection of high quality yarns. The prices seem a little high for an LYS, but it's always good to support local businesses. The atmosphere was not the friendliest, but the owner was helpful when I had questions.

I was a new knitter when I visited form out of town. I felt welcome and comfortable just browsing for a bit. When I asked some questions about some different yarns, the answers were pertinent and informative, not condescending like I've felt at some other yarn stores. I sat for a while and watched a couple of ladies knitting at the table, and they never made me feel like I was intruding.
I ended up buying several skeins of yarn, and I would definitely go back, if I ever get back in town. I happily recommend this shop.

This is a great little shop. The owner, Lynn Coe, couldn't be nicer or more helpful. There's an open knit night, when you can just go, hang out and knit or crochet, with no obligation to purchase anything. The atmosphere is bright and cheerful and for such a small space, the selection of yarns is amazing. Plus - if you don't find what you need, Lynn will order it for you. The atmosphere is so welcoming that people just go to hang out there even when there isn't an open knit night. I highly recommend this shop.

This is a small, but very bright and nicely laid out, store. I was greeted when I entered and asked if I needed any help. I went in looking for a specific yarn, and the shopkeeper was very accommodating. She showed me everything in the shop that fit my criteria. When I selected something and then changed my mind, I emailed her and she was very polite about arranging for an exchange on the cusp of the 7-day exchange period. It was, overall, a very nice experience.

Product-wise, I highly recommend the birch needles. They're fantastic!

Great shop! Friendly people!
They wind your yarn purchase into balls -- as part of the service. I recommend going back to the September reviewer.

Small selection. Did not feel welcome there at all. No one asked if they could help me or even spoke to me despite a number of employees there at the time. Will not return.
