about Strands and Stitches on Thu Oct 27 20:53:20 -0500 2011

A very interesting organization: by colour as you go around the room and by weight (finest at the top, heaviest at the bottom) within colour (for the most part). I had never seen this before! While it was nice to be able to find colours that I love, it was a little difficult when looking for a specific brand or fiber content.

All in all an overall pleasant store with kind employees.

Accessibility: mostly wheelchair/disability accessible within the store, but there is 1 step out front.

about Yarn Lady on Thu Oct 27 20:55:32 -0500 2011

An amazing store--such a great selection! So many different brands, fibers, types, etc.

Accessibility: this store is quite accessible for wheelchairs and other mobility aids.

about Ursula's Yarn Boutique on Thu Oct 27 20:58:55 -0500 2011

My word. This store looks like the home of someone who hoards yarn. The store is overwhelming because there is yarn everywhere. It's impossible to tell what she has, how much things are, etc. Things are piled haphazardly, still in their bags, and a yarn-avalanche is almost guaranteed.

Accessibility: it is next-to-impossible to navigate this shop using a mobility aid.

about Abuelita's Knitting & Needlepoint on Thu Oct 27 21:01:10 -0500 2011

A charming store. Parking is difficult, but the store was well organized and had a lovely selection.

Accessibility: this store seems very accessible for wheelchairs and other mobility aids.

about Skein: Fine Yarn Store on Thu Oct 27 21:04:02 -0500 2011

Selection is pretty good. Store was nice in general.

Accessibility was terrible. No disability parking, very little close parking in general. Multiple stairs to access the front. I don't know if they will open the back door or not for individuals who cannot make it up the stairs at all.
