About StashAdder

I'm very interested in all things artistic. I crochet as well as knit, and I've just learnt a little bit about spinning wool. I love travelling to new yarn shops and learning new techniques!

about A Good Yarn on Mon Nov 05 08:14:41 -0600 2007

There is a great selection of yarn here, especially considering the small space. The staff is wonderful and this is always a bonus, especially if you are a new knitter - Not afraid to suggest less expensive patterns to fit your budget! My only issue is that if there are more than 6 people or so in the store, not including staff, it is difficult to move around.

about Wild & Woolly Studio on Mon Nov 05 08:26:44 -0600 2007

This store has two floors to it, which greatly increases both its capacity for yarn space and also to have classes. Although the selection is diverse and admirable, the staff and atmosphere leave much to be desired. This is a yarn store that feels more like an exclusive club, rather than open environment. I may visit again just because the yarn selection is good, but I would never stay to spend time there.

about The Island Yarn Company on Mon Nov 05 08:29:09 -0600 2007

Small space, limited selection, and mediocre service. The shop has potential now that it is under new management however. Atmosphere has a dead quality to it. Would visit in emergencies.

about Charlotte's Web on Mon Nov 05 13:50:32 -0600 2007

Nice store, diverse selection, and friendly staff.

about Ewe'll Love It! on Mon Nov 05 08:11:05 -0600 2007

This store has a very large selection and is on two levels. The top level is used for clearance items, which is also diverse in its selection. There is sooooo much yarn here as well as notions, and books. I don't think it's possible to take it all in in just one visit. Bonus: The have free chocolate available all over the store. Great places to sit, monthly wine and craft events, great classes, and great service. A must visit!

about The Yarn Basket on Mon Nov 05 08:36:34 -0600 2007

No visit to Portsmouth would be complete without visiting The Yarn Basket. Although this is a small space, and I mean very very very small, they've managed to make it work. Tons of yarn there, and they have more in the basement (I don't think we can go down there, but they'll get what you need!). I love it here! I wish there was a sitting space and perhaps some candy! :)

about Vermont Beads & Fibers on Mon Nov 05 08:23:12 -0600 2007

I really enjoyed visiting this store. I almost thought of moving to Middlebury just to be close to it! The staff is wonderful and helpful. Great bead selection as well. Good focus on crocheting as well as knitting - This made me very happy!

about A Loom with a View on Mon Nov 05 13:49:16 -0600 2007

Fun atmosphere - Large space, lots of yarn, and weaving supplies. I visited there today and I really liked it!

about Seed Stitch Fine Yarn on Mon Nov 05 08:16:55 -0600 2007

Fabulous! Space, yarn, service, classes - You can't beat this place! I felt very welcomed there and that can't be beat!

about Knit Pickings on Mon Nov 05 08:33:16 -0600 2007

This is my local yarn store and I love it! It's small, but still manages to have an open atmosphere. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Awesome greeting cards there that feature little knitted items on the front! Selection is not as diverse as other places, but it is a nice balance to the books, classes, sitting space, and notions offered. Love, love, love it!

about Mind's Eye Yarns on Mon Nov 05 08:44:10 -0600 2007

I love Lucy! Lucy is the owner of Mind's Eye and she is fabulous. She is always open to whatever crazy questions that you can come up with. Also, she really believes in her students and customers ability to learn and take on challenges. Very knowledgeable, great storyteller, and very witty. I love going there to get some of her hand-dyed yarn! Must visit in Porter Square, Cambridge, MA!
