I love this store! We go to Memphis once a year to visit our son who lives up there and I always go to visit Yarniverse! I also followed them on Facebook when I had an account. They have a terrific selection of yummy yarn and the people who work there are super helpful with matching patterns to yarns, etc and always ask if they can wind my yarn no matter how many hanks I purchase. Yarniverse is one of the highlights of my trips to Tennessee. I look forward to going there again in a few weeks! Bravo, Brenda, for your lovely and homey store!

I didn't really find anything to that I wanted to knit at this store. I thought the selection was a bit limited. I prefer handyes and natural fibers. My memory is the carried some of brands of Plymouth, Elite, etc. Just didn't have an inviting atmosphere.

I could not believe the horrible reviews that I see for this wonderful store. The staff is not rude, but instead very helpful. If you buy things there, then they will walk you through any project no matter how difficult. Some of you may have run into one staff member on a bad day. You sit down and you are among friends. We have been knitting there for two years! So we started 2009. They have an amazingly beautiful selection of yarn. Check out their website www.yarniverse.com

I must NOT agree with any of the reviews. They are indeed quite old (last one Oct. 2009). MY experience at Yarniverse is been wonderful. I started going there this in September 2010 and I really like the store and I also like the staff. I particularly I love miss Anne. She is the most helpful staff around.

All the other reviews are correct, about the rude snobby staff. I just wanted to add, I think their selection is poor as well. What an awful place, thank goodness for Stash. It may be small, but at least you won't leave in tears!

If Yarniverse were the only yarn shop in Memphis I would have to move. The store has no redeeming qualities. They should be renamed the Knit Snits.

I am new and went to Yarniverse ( with yarn bought from their store) and I got the same vibe. Snobby and not particularly friendly to me.

if only I had found this review first. my experience was somewhat worse than this but the particulars are the same. yarn snobs who suck would be my title for them, check this link
there are many better deseseving places to spend your $$$

Yarniverse has a really good selection but the customer service leaves something to be desired.
