When I first drove up to the shop, I was afraid it was closed. Then I saw someone in there and decided to go in. Stupid me, the door was closed to keep the AC in!

Once inside I was greeted by Gini and Sandy, the owner. They seemed friendly but I had to give my two second "don't worry I knit and crochet" bit so that they relaxed a bit. Once they understood that this tall guy wanted yarn they were ok. Sandy was helping another customer and went outside and I asked Gini about local yarns. She showed me some BEAUTIFUL superwash yarns that had been dyed by Sandy! I fell in love with a hank and scooped it up right away. Gini and I also shared our love and affinity for Stephen West patterns and went through some other things on Ravelry.

They have a great selection of other yarns too! Shi Bui, Malabrigo, Cascade of course, but then some other brands which I can't remember but soo many luscious colours!!

At the end of my visit, Sandy came back in. Talking with her was a very different experience entirely. Where Gini was a salesperson, Sandy just cut conversations short with very direct answers. Very matter of fact. I did overhear her on the phone regarding a botched landscaping job or something so I'm going to chalk her attitude up to that.

All in all, it was a pleasant experience and I will certainly be bringing my girlies with me next time!

I have been trying to telephone your store and desire to talk to a manager about a possible exchange. I can only get an answering machine, even during working hours, so I will try to explain my situation.
My son lives in Sagamore Beach and I live in Souther MD, outside Wash. DC. For a Christmas present, He purchased 4 hanks of yarn and then later requested 6 more of that same kind, which took some big effort on your part since it had to be found somewhere in the US. I love the yarn but the project that I was going to use it for, calls for a worsted weight.
I don't want to tell him that I'm not happy with it. But I would like to know if I mail it back, could you apply the price and send me 10 hanks of alpaca with worsted weight. I already did a gauge swatch and will not be able to return all ten, but 9 hanks. I can use the one as a lacy scarf but really don't have the need for nine more Fine.
Would you please respond to this inquiry or tell me a good time to call the number given on the website for your store. Thanks so much. The pictures of your store look great and I can't wait to come there in person next summer.

a very upsetting and disappointing visit to your store yesterday with my 12 year old daughter.

staff was rude and clearly not interested in patiently working with novices on getting started with a simple crochet project.

will not revisit.

Great yarn shop! Very experienced and knowledgeable owner. The "knitting guru". A great addition to knitters on Cape Cod and visitors. Classes, patterns, and reasonably priced yarns.

Great to have a new knitting store in the area with a very helpful owner. Excellent selection of yarn!

You need to fix the directions!!! They send you to Route 6 NOT Rt. 6A. There's a big difference!!!!
