We stayed in Sacramento for a long weekend and I FORGOT my knitting!!! I know, horror story! I found Rumpelstiltskin Yarn on this site. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. They are small, but have a very good selection of different types of yarn. The location is convenient, good parking and there are several restaurants near by. If I lived in Sacramento, I would look into their classes. This place is a find.

I was thinking of stopping at this store when traveling. Then I read about the store and decided not. It's to bad this store isn't a place one would want to visit.

Very helpful. I was in town for a conference and they were convenient to convention center. I am grateful they even have sunday hours which many yarn shops do not have. Sacramento knitters don't realize what a luxury it is to have a local yarn store so conveniently located. Staff was helpful and courteous.

They have a big selection, although I had hard time figuring out if they had any system to the way the yarns were organized. All in all, not impressed - not the kind of shop where you'd want to hang out.

I don't think I'll ever go there again. When I said I was a crocheter and machine knitter the response was a blah "ooohhh". Then they acted like I wasn't worthy of service anymore.

A friend and I went and we enjoyed the store very much. The lady working there was very nice and helpful. I found Debbie Bliss yarns in colors I couldn't find anywhere else; also found some great patterns. Lots of fun made items in the store that make you want to buy more patterns and yarns. Although it's about 1.5 hrs from where I live, I would make specials trip to shop there again.

I only go to this store for yarn emergencies. The yarn selection is uninspiring, but contains the basics. The service is poor -especially for those of us that are younger. I have noticed the few times I have visited that the older patrons are served while I am often ignored.

I've had mixed results at this shop - sometimes find really neat stuff, sometimes helpful staff, other times not. However, they usually have the a good selection of basic staples.


by tarrilynn on Wednesday, Aug 13 2008 at 05:39PM CDT

Pretty standard fare, but a few of the newer stuff. Only go there if have specific stuff in mind. Staff is friendly, depending on how busy they are.

Decent selection of yarn. Lots of worsted weight yarns, not many DK or fingering, although they had some that I couldn't find anywhere else. The staff is helpful if they are not occupied talking with their friends. I went there on a Sunday and I was barely acknowledged when I walked in the door. I would probably go there again if there was something specific I need, but definitely NOT a shop that I would enjoy perusing the yarn at. She also does not have a frequent buyer's program, which other stores in the area do have.

Well this is a store I wouldn't go to unless I abosolutely had to.
Can't ever imagine that I couln't find what I need else where.
I had Rumpelstiltskin special order yarn for me, pre-paid, and they toally screwed the order up. No refund,(even though it was their fault) no apology either.
Staff was rather "cold", rushed, and seemed rather fearful of owner.
So...........this place is a "No-Go" for me.

Selection is great, can always count on them having solid workhorse yarns. I always know exactly what they carry and what to expect. Staff and atmosphere, however, is mixed and sometimes vary. I don't ever stick around beyond just getting what I need and getting out quickly.

Very helpful staff, good prices and great selection! And I love have they have tons of colored roving!
