This store is so great it makes me wish I lived in or near Rockland. I live in Massachusetts but drop in whenever I am in the area. Wonderful service. The sales staff encourage me to touch and feel the lovely yarn selections to my heart's content. Would love to be part of the stitch nights. Please support this shop and keep it in business for a very long time.

I was(and still am) so excited to finally have a LYS!!!! They have built a fantastic atmosphere with the right people working there! Mim and Kristin have a well thought out, well laid out and well stocked store! They will do custom orders for you if they can get their hands on it. Both custom orders have been available within a week of me asking.

Their staff is friendly and very knowledgeable but they don't badger you. They welcome their patrons to come in and just hang out if they have free time. Although they have posted Knit and Spin times, they welcome people to come in anytime and knit or spin.

I look forward to stopping in and saying hi and I always have a good laugh with the crew at OTR(as we locals call it!)

I love this store! The yarn selection is varied and excellent. The staff is friendly and welcoming. And they have a very cozy spot to sit and knit or crochet on during scheduled knitting group times or any time at all!

I love Over the Rainbow Yarns. Not only do they have a great selection of $ to $$ yarns but the staff is uber friendly and knowledgeable.

The folks here are very community oriented and I love how they bring the fiber community together.

Knit nights are fun and I love that someone with more knowledge is always there to help when I get stuck.

When I'm having a bad day this is where I go to cheer up. :)

I would highly recommend you stop in here if you're in Rockland, and if you're just in the area make it a destination.

OTR is a definite destination LYS. Find an excuse to go there! Mim does an excellent job of creating a crafting community and making everyone welcome.
