About VangeKnitter

I'm a 30-ish Knitter, Weaver, Crocheter. I 've been knitting since fall of 2005, Weaving since summer of 2009, and crocheting since Christmas of 2009. Having grown up in a crafty family it seems to have come naturally to me. love going to LYS's. Six Paca is my favorite place to go. To say that everyone is wonderful there is an understatement. The alpacas are beautiful too.

I also have a roommate that knits and we have 4 kitties. We both work with glass, and have an interest in mental health advocacy too.

about Mothers Of Purl Yarn on Mon Aug 02 21:54:35 -0500 2010

Went there the other day for the first time and absolutely love it there. You go in through the front (Papoose) and they'll show you from there. They even have KnitNight on the 1st & 3rd Wed of the month.

about Dagmar's Yarn Shop on Mon Aug 02 22:14:37 -0500 2010

Yes, Dagmar's is Montauk Ave. Now and is absolutely wonderful. Great selection.

about KNITWITS on Mon Aug 02 22:16:17 -0500 2010

Great place. Small, good slelction. One person there is rather cranky, but others are great.

about Mystic River Yarns on Mon Aug 02 22:18:34 -0500 2010

This is one of our most favorite yarn stores. My roommate and I love going there. They are more than happy to help, have a wonderful selection of yarns, and so so so much more.

about Saybrook Yarn on Mon Aug 02 22:22:39 -0500 2010

We went and will not be returning. The staff were rude, made us feel like an inconvenience, didn't want to answer any questions, and ignored us. Very expensive too.

about Connecticut Yarn and Wool Company, LLC on Mon Aug 02 22:24:46 -0500 2010

A great selection, frequent sales, and 2 locations. What more does one want. They have Yarn Bucks too. You spend $50 and use a yarn buck...you get money off your purchase. Nice people.

about Six Paca Boutique & Brew on Tue Aug 03 04:04:30 -0500 2010

I love this place. Everyone is so friendly. The knitting group is wonderful. The yarns are from the fiber of their Alpacas and the clothing & accessories are so nice.

about Burgis Brook Alpacas on Wed Aug 04 01:22:29 -0500 2010

Love it here. Both times we have just dropped in. It's a nice cozy place. The people are friendly. Yarn is great.

about Pik-A-Knit Yarn Shop on Wed Aug 04 01:23:45 -0500 2010

We didn't stop as it's in someone's house and we don't like going into someone's house. Also we weren't entirely sure it was there as there was no sign or indication that it was still there.

about Criations on Wed Aug 04 01:27:25 -0500 2010

Stopped in as part of a crawl. There were 3 people that completely ignored us. We even said "Hi" to them. We got no greeting, offer to help, or farewell. We felt like we were intruding on them. The door was open when we got there and they were just sitting around. There was some nice yarns we would have gotten if they were nicer.

about Yards of Yarn at Agway Too on Wed Aug 04 01:30:52 -0500 2010

The people here were very nice. It's a nice spacious place with nice yarns. There's kits to do beaded knitting and bags of beads to use with knitting. The lady was very helpful and friendly. We exchanged some information and look forward to seeing her again.

about Creative Fibers on Wed Aug 04 01:34:11 -0500 2010

Our first time going and it was the first one of the day for a crawl. The lady (Owner I think) that was there was extremely nice. She told us about places in the area and we did likewise for our area. Very helpful, great selection, spacious, and more.

about Knit One, Purl Too! on Wed Aug 04 01:35:56 -0500 2010

It's a nice place, and they talked to us a little, but we were bird dogged from the moment we walked in. We felt like they expected us to steal from them. Nice selection of yarn though.

about The Mermaid's Purl on Wed Aug 04 01:36:53 -0500 2010

It's a wonderful place. The people are friendly. There's a great selection of yarn, and in a great area. Only problem we had was following the directions to get there, but we got there.

about Unwind RI on Wed Aug 04 01:37:40 -0500 2010

VERY RUDE. We will NOT be returning.

about The Yarn Garden on Wed Aug 04 01:43:53 -0500 2010

Stumbled upon this one. It's tiny and was cramped. We understood though as it was right after StitchesEast. Had great customer service.

about Webs America's Yarn Store on Wed Aug 04 01:47:22 -0500 2010

WEBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How we love it here. We'd be in trouble if it was close to us. They have sooooo much yarn. Not to mention the spinning & weaving supplies, or great customer service.

about Northampton Wools on Wed Aug 04 01:49:57 -0500 2010

Yarn can be on the expensive side, hard to find parking, customer service is not the best, and cramped. OVerall, I would go again if I had to, but wouldn't relish it.

about The Yarn Basket on Wed Aug 04 01:54:47 -0500 2010

Absolutely wonderful. A definite keeper. The people were wonderful, gave great directions when we were lost. A wonderful selection of yarn. Great lighting. Well organized. We also got a free star on the card they have.

about Madison Wool on Wed Aug 04 01:55:36 -0500 2010

A bit small and hard to find, but packed with wonderful and yummy yarns.

about Mt. Laurel Yarn Boutique on Wed Sep 15 01:38:57 -0500 2010

A wonderful place that has a great sitting area. Very easy to find, Friendly people, tons of yarn. Can't wait to go back.

about Green Mountain Spinnery on Mon Oct 11 00:03:28 -0500 2010

Small shop with their yarns. Very friendly. Extremely easy to find as it's right off the highway.

about Baker's on Mon Oct 11 00:10:09 -0500 2010

Don't judge a book by it's cover. It may not seem like much on the outside, but they have a great selection. The person who was there that day was wonderful too. We found yarns that we haven't seen elsewhere as well as patterns. I love the felting before and after visual.

about Six Loose Ladies on Mon Oct 11 00:12:55 -0500 2010

Wonderful, helpful, knowledgable staff. They have a wide assortment of yarns along with a Vermont yarn corner. One of my favorites was a Vermont Navajo-Churro yarn.

about Handknits on Mon Oct 11 00:14:23 -0500 2010

Great store. I love the yarn and how the store is layed out.

about Green Mountain Fibers Yarn Store on Mon Oct 11 00:25:37 -0500 2010

Great place. Cool yarns, many books and patterns. Just stopped by as we were driving by and found yarns that we fell in love with.

about Woolworks Ltd. on Fri Feb 04 00:29:19 -0600 2011

Went there today and had a blast. The people are very welcoming and helpful. Great selection of items. Nice quaint part of town that reminds you of an Old New England Town.

about Close Knit Sisters on Tue Apr 10 01:30:37 -0500 2012

Went there on our trip to North Conway. Felt very welcome. The lady working was extremely pleasant and helpful. There was a great selection of sale and regular yarn. Look forward to returning there.

about Patternworks on Tue Apr 10 01:35:29 -0500 2012

Had a great time when we went there on our trip to NH. The people working there were very helpful. Eager to join their club and shop from the catalog.

about Mothers Of Purl Yarn on Fri Jul 06 23:44:27 -0500 2012

Went today at their new location. Love it even more than at the old location.

about Nancy's Alterations and Yarn Shop on Tue Dec 11 17:51:54 -0600 2012

A nice cozy yarn shop right in the village. It's right by the Scenic Railroad. Majority of the store is dedicated to yarn. The owner is very nice and friendly. Prices are great.
