about Woolgathering on Sun Sep 07 05:31:24 -0500 2008

If you were travelling and were pressed for time, I can't say that I would include this shop in your must-see list. You could probably find most of the yarn in your hometown LYS. The previous owner was lovely, I am sorry she moved away from the City.

Beautiful shop, even from an architectural standpoint, as it is located in an old brownstone. I happened upon them during a summer sale, and was amazed at the variety and quality of the stock. Purchased Anny Blatt, some Filatura, and some Teva Durham yarn. I will definitely be returning. The owner and staff that were there were very accomodating, I will definitely be returning. Most amazing yarn I noticed: cashmere Koigu !!

about Habu Textiles on Sun Sep 07 05:46:42 -0500 2008

A must see for out-of-towners. Gracious staff, and amazing yarns!!!!! These are Japanese yarns, many are made from unusual materials; paper, very fine stainless steel, bamboo, etc. You will see things here that no one else is manufacturing. A small and elegant space, well worth the trip.

about Tender Buttons on Sun Sep 07 05:50:28 -0500 2008

This is an amazing shop, it's almost like a visit to a button museum. I highly recommend it!!!

Great old time yarn store....I think 35 yrs in existence. The owner, Adam, has an unbelievable color sense! Whether you are looking for a current pattern or something vintage, they seem to have it.

Great high end selection of yarn, and beautifully organized shop. A hip, young staff. I visited last year, they had an amazing selection of Koigu, Alchemy, etc. Bought some Helens Lace for a shawl. Don't forget to check out the sale area too. They also have a website.

about Annie & Company Needlepoint and Knitting on Sun Sep 07 05:41:23 -0500 2008

Large and spacious store, which is a rarity in Manhattan. The upstairs is needlepoint, downstairs is yarn. If I were a needlepoint junkie I would definitely shop here, the finishing seems out of this world, I couldn't help but gaze at the finished projects that were waiting on a shelf to be claimed by their owners. I don't know who they use, but the woman is clearly a treasure!!! As far as the yarn selection, they had many high end companies represented. Pleasant staff, I will definitely make a return visit.
