So, I visited this shop in 2013 and left a bad review here on Knitmap.

I recently visited this shop again and what an amazing difference!!! They are under new ownership and the ladies are incredibly nice and helpful. Lots and lots of yarn to choose from ~ I had no problem finding all I needed plus more.

The yarn is now priced ~ I love that!

So much yarn ~ did I mention that ~ LOTS of yarn!!! Cool accessories, bags and samples are sprinkled throughout the shop.

I will DEFINITELY be back!!! If you get the opportunity to visit this shop ~ do so. And then shoot down the street and sip a coffee at Starbucks while you fondle your purchases!

My friend and I visited this store today and I have to say we left with a different feeling than when we entered.

It's a nice shop ~ lots of selection in both yarn and accessories.

It could be a WONDERFUL shop but for a few things ~

1) Price the yarn. There are no prices on ANY of the yarn ~ you have to ASK THE SALES ASSOCIATE. WHAT????? How uncomfortable is that? When I mentioned that nothing was priced, they told me it was because they rotate the stock. Um, don't more stores rotate stock? Unacceptable to me.

2) After being told, "we don't hover, if you need anything just ask" ~ she proceeded to hover for a while. Did you think I would steal????

3) The staff could be more friendly. They told us numerous times that they 'are the best shop around'. Uh, no, you are not.

4) We happened to be a on a day trip visiting 4 different shops. As we left, one of the employees stated, "You'll be back ~ we are the best." Again, uh, no, you are not.

We had a great deal of money to spend today ~ sadly for your shop, we spent very little there. And after we went outside, we regretted our purchases.

Good luck with this shop ~ I know 2 knitters who won't be back. And one of the two, oh, is she a yarn snob.......

Organized by yarn weight in what was a house with small rooms and nooks. This can make it a challenge to find what I want. Sometimes feel that my shopping is interrupting the staff from knitting and chatting together. Staff knowledge about products and knitting varies.

A very large selection of yarns. Service is somewhat iffy. I had to keep going to the back room to get help and got the feeling that I interrupting their knitting.

I was so impressed by this store. I was amazed at the selection and bought way too much yarn. The ladies were very helpful and answered all my questions. This si a little out of the way from Gettysburg, PA, but a must visit!!!
