Friendly and helpful staff in a small and comfy store, with not a lot of selection but just enough for a quick browse as a tourist. Found yarns I have never seen before which was a treat. Like the open concept, feels very cozy and homey in a good way.

Small comfortable shop with a friendly staff. Great balcony area on 2nd floor for patrons to knit. Yarn selection not large, but a good variety. Enjoyed browsing and finding some local yarn to purchase.

When I go to new cities, I always make a point of finding a LYS and seeing if I can get my hands on some local yarns. While I did enjoy the atmosphere of the shop, I was disappointed that there was really only one local yarn available when I stopped in. They did have some very nice yarns, good quality, but not that much I couldn't find back home.

A small but nice little shop right in the downtown area. Staff was friendly; prices were about the same or slightly above what I've seen in other LYS. They also some a limited supply of roving, if you're a spinner. Call or check their website before heading over -- their hours have recently changed.

Went in for the first time, and won't be going back. Yarn selection is VERY limited, and seemed a little more expensive than I've seen in other LYSs. Needle selection was poor. Book and magazine selection was good. Service was OK, I was greeted on entry, asked if I needed assistance, but I wasn't hovered over. Parking is almost non-existent, and as my son said, "that place wasn't worth finding a parking spot for" There's a lot of empty space in this store that could be used for more yarn.

Great yarn store with a good selection. I was able to find several local yarns that were lovely. There is plenty of room to sit and knit.

Very nice shop with a good selection of major labels and smaller or hand-dyed products. Not a huge stock, but well chosen.
