I tried to find this shop only to discover a new business in the address for the yarn shop. I was told that the owner of "Unwind" unwound her shop and cast off about a year ago. There is a lovely interior decorating service at this location now. Oh well. ~kas

ummm, I'm the same age as the previous review and I have never experienced any "age discrimination". Perhaps she had a 'leave me alone' demeanor but Unwind is the friendliest shop and I have been to tons of shops.

I visited Unwind about two years ago shopping for a local yarn store with a greater variety of products. At the time I was a little new to knitting and would have liked a bit of help and explanation to the craft, and I figured a yarn store would be perfect. When I walked it I received no greeting, and no help. Feeling a bit put off by the unwelcome atmosphere I wandered around looking at the various yarns and projects they had on display. After a time I wandered up the counter to see if they had classes available, when a younger lady about my age asked if I needed help. I was a bit discouraged at this point and simply asked if they had wooden needles, she was helpful enough to point to their wall where they had a selection of more expensive needles that were wooden and then disappeared into the back. After glancing at the prices I simply left, as I felt as if I was intruding upon quiet time.

Although this was two years ago, I did make the journey back a couple of months ago, feeling much more practiced in my knitting skills and seeking a replacement circular needle set. Unfortunately the atmosphere was exactly the same, I felt unwanted in the store. I observed the owners conversing with an older lady who had come in shortly after me, and I was very surprised to see them question her on current knitting projects and such. They showed her around the store and seemed to regard her in a much more friendly manner. I can only assume this is because she was older. I am 20 and visited the first time when I was 17 or 18. The area this shop is in is known for the younger crowds window shopping, however I don't feel this is an excuse to just assume that I am only window shopping and do not intend to buy products simply because I am part of the "younger crowd".

I was very surprised to read the comments on the helpful and friendly staff on this page, and wanted to issue a warning.

Age discrimination is something I would be wary of while visiting this store. If you're over 30 I wouldn't worry, however if younger than that I wish you luck. I'll visit again in the near future to check out if they've changed their tactics at all, as I would love to join a knitting group in the area. However, as is right now- I don't see me joining or even shopping there- it's unfortunate because they are the only yarn store in the area.

My favorite yarny hangout! There is a Sit and Stitch the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, the staff is friendly and so very knowledgeable, and the selection is wonderfu! By far one of the best organized stores I have been in. :)

Always a pleasure to stop in at Unwind. They carry a solid selection of good basic yarns, plus a very select collection of luxury yarns.

This location is now called Unwind! Very nice, friendly folks. A fair selection of good yarn, and getting better all the time.
