I discovered this wonderful shop during the Yarn Crawl of 2011. The staff is very friendly, they stock a great supply of yarns and even more beads, and the staff is very helpful. If the shop was only closer to me (about 30 miles from my home) I'd spend lots more time there. Bonus is the great ice cream just down the road at Russell Stovers!

Great yarn! The yarn "section" covers a good half of the store! Really interesting and good quality fibers. They have creative classes with very patient and helpful instructors and the staff is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I like the selection of roving for spinning and they seem to be getting into all of the types of felting with "needle felting" and "nuno" felting classes, as well as a variety of patterns for all kinds of knitted-felted projects. They are quick to pull out color cards for special projects for their customers and they will even google search a yarn they don't carry to help you match their yarns to your own patterns(even though they have plenty of great ones...and free ones). I recently started a project with yarn that I bought there a while ago and I ran out! They were kind enough to make a special order for the dye lot that they no longer had and it arrived in less than a week! They even kindly offered to ship it to me so I wouldn't have to make a trip, but I gladly returned to shop when I picked up my yarn. I would strongly agree with the other two comments that the customer service is exceptional. I feel like a part of the family when I go in there, which isn't as often as I'd like. They always remember my name! I follow their page on Facebook and they post pictures of new types of yarns and beads so I'm always temped to visit. Even though I live a little over an hour away, I would pass plenty of yarn stores to shop at this one because of my experiences there. I count down the days until my next trip to Illinois so I can visit the creative haven that is "The Bead Place"! I love this store and I love the people in it!

This store has a small selection of yarn, but it's selection is growing as more customers buy it and yarn companies ship it. If you don't see what you like, staff is very helpful and if they can will order it. They are also a beading store, so great place to knit with beads. Friday nights store is open to knit, crochet or bead, and often have sale items with free patterns available on these nights.

This is a bead store that has a good knitting/crochet section. They have patterns, needles, yarn, but it's a small section, not a huge selection. However, what they do have is quality, and I ran into a situation where I needed something they didn't have but carry the same brand and they were perfectly willing to order it for me. Very nice staff and exceptionally helpful.
