Great selection, although overpriced. Good hours and an excellent source for books. Not as welcoming as they used to be. I used to send the girls there from my knitting club but the staff don't listen well enough to them. A few times they suggested yarn that in the long run, would be way too expensive even for an experienced yarn snob knitter. The last time was the end of it, the student was told they didn't have time for her questions and to come back when she knew how to knit.

Wonderful selection. Love the location, but I won't go back there. Every time I went in there, I always felt like I was interrupting their day. I love that they ask if you need help, but after saying no twice and then being asked a THIRD time, it made me feel like I was bothering them or had interrupted them and it wasn't an isolated incident. I haven't been back in over a year. I actually drive to Toronto to buy my wool now or drive out to Guelph.

I've been going regularily since they opened in Waterloo. It's a fantastic shop with a great selection of yarn and the staff are super nice. They get some really neat non-yarn stock in too.

I went to there shop when they first opened in Waterloo and it is amazing. I never went to there other location but wanted to. The hours are nice and they have a really nice knitting group that is really welcoming to everyone on friday nights. The store has a great selection for knitting and a bit for spinning and they have tons of pattern books. The owners are all very helpful and easy to approach. Overall you will not be disappointed :)

I went for the first time yesterday and I was thoroughly surprized! It's a fantastic little shop with a really great selection, terrific book/pattern selection, a customer rewards program and really nice folks. Note: they're closed on Sundays and Mondays and only open until 4 pm on Saturdays. Highly recommended!

They have the most CIVILIZED bathroom for their patrons. Karen is very welcoming and more than happy to help further your stash or pattern addiction. I love it there!
