The yarn selection could be better, but I love the overall atmosphere & friendliness of the staff & other patrons. The needles/notions selection is great!

I believe the ownership of this shop changed in the last 1-2 years, so if you weren't satisfied before, I suggest trying again!

I wish Yarntopia was closer to Houston, but I decided to make the drive out to Katy to check it out. I was greeted by the friendliest employee I have ever met at a yarn store. She offered me a tour of the store and explained the different types of yarn and what they would be good for. She even showed me some projects on her Ravelry page that she was working on and the yarns she was using from the store so I could see what they looked like when they had been made into something. I ended up buying some yarn from the sale section, and the lady was extremely enthusiastic that I had found such a great deal on that yarn. She introduced me to the customers sitting on the couch working on projects.

I had such a great experience here that I wish I didn't have to drive 30-45 minutes (in good traffic) to get there. I left in such a great mood and can't wait to go back.

Do you carry any DMC Perle Cotton balls? I need size 8, 938 = Dk Brown, & 782 = antique gold. I live in Richmond so do not want to make the trip to Katy unless you carry this.
Thank you.

I have been going to Yarntopia for several years and find it to be a very inviting store. I am always greated with a friendly hello and can I help you find something. The store is clean, organized and has a good seletion of yarn. They are always very nice about helping you with a project and invite you to sit if you need more help. I have taken several classes and learned a lot. I am glad Yarntopia is in Katy!

So I decided to venture into Yarntopia. I moved to Houston last spring and haven't been able to find an LYS so I was eager to make the 20 minute drive. Upon entering the store, the owner didn't even glance up from whatever paperwork was so captivating. My friend and I were the only patrons in the store, she waited a few minutes to ask if we needed something, we of course, were just browsing. About 30 minutes later, a woman arrived on a mission for needles, she was in and out in minutes--so there is a plus. When we finally decided on our purchases, we were meet with quick ring up and we were on our way. I did enjoy the variety of yarns, I believe the color selection was nice and the store has great curb appeal.
I am eager to try other stores in the area.

My parents live near Yarntopia, and every time I go home we stop by to check things out, but I don't know why we still go back. Every single time I go in there I am ignored to check out the lack of yarn selections on my own. Even when I actually need a question answered or some detail, I can't get it. The women who run the store typically sit on the couch, working on whatever project they have going and don't seem to mind whether I'm there or not. Not to mention the yarn selection is pretty terrible. Even when they do happen to have a brand of yarn I like, they tend to have about 4 colors. I guess it's a great place to go if you like Debbie Bliss yarn and being ignored. Terrible customer service.

not a great selection of yarn but friendly staff.

I have found Yarntopia to be the friendliest, most welcoming yarn shop in the greater Houston area.The shop is well-lit and well-organized.I have taken several classes there with 3 different instructors. Each class has extended my skills and knowledge and the teachers were kind, helpful, and encouraging.The nicest thing about this shop is that it feels like a community, and even if they don't know you from Adam, they make you feel like you're a part of it.

Wonderful selection of yarn, patterns and needles for both knitting and crochet. Offers many classes for both projects and techniques. Frequented by knitters of all ages!

One of the better yarn stores in the greater Houston Texas area. Worth the drive out there.
