Although the selection of yarn is lovely, the service is horrific. The staff, especially the owner, were condescending at best and downright rude at worst. The atmosphere was unpleasant since the staff were as rude to each other as they were to me. I paid my first and last visit to this store today and will NEVER return.

Nice yarns and lots of it. Lots of pattern books. But the shop is so crowded that pulling a skein off a shelf usually causing an avalanche of yarn...makes me a somewhat hesitant shopper...just moving around the shop is difficult.

I've found the "circle of regulars" at the table somewhat off-putting too. Asking someone to move so that I could get to a shelf got me a sort of unfriendly reception. Still...the selection is outstanding.

In response to anonymous above....I am a regular at the shop on Mondays cause it's my day off, so they are definitely open. If you are speaking about the date on your post, there was a bad snowstorm and I remember hearing them say that they had to open at noon because of the weather. I've also never had an issue with the staff. They have been friendly and helpful to me. I appreciate the fact that they don't follow me around while I'm looking...maybe other people take that as being ignored. I don't.

Don't go on a Monday because even though they advertise they are open...they are not. Waste of a drive. They have a decent selection of many yarns but not very many of any one kind. The staff are sometimes more involved in the constant stitch n bitch and kind of ignore customers.

Don't bother going on a Monday because even though they advertise they are open - they are not.

This is the place to go if you need, say, two skeins of bright fluffy orange alpaca - they have a little (or a lot) of everything. As a hanging out place, there's always a few people at the table but they tend to kind of ignore you when you walk in. It's also kind of cramped, but that's the price of having such a diverse selection. The staff, however, have always been helpful to me.

I've been a customer of Woolstock for the past 7 years and am very surprised by the comments. I've always found the staff to be very friendly and extremely helpful (I sometimes need a little hand-holding when I'm learning something new). When I have time I love coming in and sitting around the table, knitting, and shooting the breeze with other customers. And to be perfectly honest, I've been to several other shops, but Woolstock still has the best selection of yarns I've ever seen.

I agree with reddbettie that sometimes there service can be less than ideal. In fact, my experience (with the owner) was so bad that I have chosen to never patronize the store, again.

Sometimes the service seems a little off-putting, while other times everyone is more than willing to help whenever needed! Go in with an idea of what you need, and they will help you find it.
