about All You Knit Is Love on Sat Sep 26 15:48:09 -0500 2009

This place is fantastic and the atmosphere is very nice. In one of Barcelonas Gothic streets. The owner, her husband and the little girl were such a delight. This place was a fantastic place to visit and if I am in Barcelona again, you bet I will go and visit and shop again.

This was a greqat surprise to find in the Mall, and the owner was such a great sport. Lovely yarns from everywhere , but local Irish milled as well. Friendly place, would recommend a visit and sponsoring this lady's great shop. Thank you!

about ImagiKnit on Sat Sep 26 15:57:28 -0500 2009

This place is where I do most of my shopping and they do have all the yarn in the world. The staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable. Never go in a hurry looking for yarn they will overwhelm you. The biggest selection of Addis and regular needles and lots of patterns and books. I also have to add their friendly attitude toward male knitters and crocheters.

about J.O.Y. (Joy Of Yarn) Sock Wool Boutique on Sat Sep 26 16:00:49 -0500 2009

Their Website is Up. I met the owner in one of our Men Knitting Retreats and James is a wonderful guy and very helpful. All I can tell you is that even though I have not been to his shop , If I had to judge the shop by the owner, the shop must be cozy and people friendly.

I met the owner the other day, she is very lovely woman that knows her stuff. SHe was sponsoring our Men Who Crochet Chapter Meeting. She has a yarn selection that is very varied in price and blends. There is yarn I have not seen in any other places. SUnny location on the Piedmot Area, that is worth visiting and sponsoring.

The place is tiny with a punch. Very friendly to Males who want to learn to spin, or just looking for some yarn or supplies. As a male who knits and crochet I felt very welcomed. Right in the Sunset Distric in San Francisco you can get to it easily by public transportation. Eco Friendly and always improving . I look forward to future classes. They have a lot to offer!

It was a Pleasure to Meet Francesca and the the other member if the staff which the name escapes me at the moment, not her fault. I liked the place, it is CROCHET Friendly, very friendly and helpful staff. I was visiting from San Francisco and was able to get some local yarns. The selection is good and the conversation is even better. Keep up the good work and Hope we can visit again.

There are all kinds of supplies, from spindles and fiber, to needles and hooks. If you are in Vancouver you will benefit from your visit to this cozy neighborhood Yarn Store, keep up the good work and thank you for making me feel so welcome.

about Silk Weaving Studio on Wed Dec 01 07:49:05 -0600 2010

It was such a joy to walk into this gem of a store at Granville Island. There is plenty of silk for knitting, crocheting or weaving. There was a young lady there when I visited a few days ago and very friendly. If you are looking for silk fiber, for spinning or weaving or knitting and crochet this store has a lot of good quality silk. It is a silk studio and it shows. I loved it and hope to return some day soon, thanks for the friendly service and chat.

This is a gem that I found on the Granville Island. There are plenty of natural dyes at a great price. There are yarns in different colors and plenty of fiber for spinning. There are acid dyes as well , the prices are fantastic. This is a must see in your Vancouver Yarn Crawl! Friendly staff and lots of curious things , great books I had a great time and my partner got me my Christmas present while I was looking at the Natural dye stuff. Pay them a visit, is a fantastic place.

about SweetGeorgia Yarns on Wed Dec 01 08:05:03 -0600 2010

I did not get the chance to see the studio, nobody was home when I rang the bell. Got some of their great tough love sock yarn from another store which is something I wanted to do as well. This is also a must see place if you go to Vancouver, just make sure you call first. My Vancouver friends like it a lot.

You need to ring the bell to get into the studio, it is a building with multiple stores. Call and or check their website for up to date news. Is not a store that you can just walk into from the street. Is a must see so do call them in advance.
