about The Black Sheep on Mon Oct 15 20:19:26 -0500 2007

Very nice staff, however the knitting section is barely there. They are mostly a cross stitch and needle point shop with a SMALL walk in closet size room of yarn and books. The selection was VERY limited both in variety and in color within what they had. Again, they were VERY nice though. Looked like the selection of stuff in the other sections was good, but I don't do either of those crafts.

about The Needle Tree on Mon Oct 15 20:33:43 -0500 2007

this is a cute shop. The directions we got elsewhere weren't great, but when we called they got us right there! Great pattern support, nice selection of books, yarns and notions.

about Unwind Yarn on Mon Oct 15 20:32:13 -0500 2007

I really enjoyed this shop when I was in. I was on vacation and it came HIGHLY recommended. I was NOT disappointed. Great selection. GREAT service and a perfect sitting area for knitting. The samples are beautiful and timely, and the yarns were amazing. I spent WAY too much money.

about Purls Tucson on Sat Jan 10 16:11:06 -0600 2009

I was really looking forward to this shop, however I have to say I was sad when I left. They have a great selection. If you don't mind being treated like crap, then it is prob fine. The "regulars" all seemed to great GREAT service, but I was visiting. My friend and I were not spoken to directly until we checked out and that was more of a trouble than she could bother with really. And the only other person who spoke to us was downright rude. I purchased only what I HAD to have because I left the needles I needed at home and left.

Friendly staff, great selection of both yarn and notions (books, etc.). Fantastic classes and a great atmosphere for sitting and knitting.

about A Strand of Purls on Mon Oct 15 20:23:23 -0500 2007

Nice and spacious shop - just opened. Friendly staff. We were there for the grand opening. Some of their yarn is a little over priced, but that happens. The selection of sock yarn is small but they are a new shop, so they are probably still building up stock.

about Yarn Paradise on Mon Oct 15 20:26:18 -0500 2007

Great stock of koigu as well as a nice selection of sock yarn. WALL O NORO - actually wall and a half. The staff was friendly and really wanted to know what we wanted to see in the shop.

about Rainy Day Creations, Inc. on Mon Oct 15 20:20:40 -0500 2007

Great shop. Nice staff and selection. Support not only knitting, but spinning and weaving as well. Also there is a selection of knit originals and handmade jewelry etc for sale.

about Tucson Yarn Company on Sat Jan 10 16:13:19 -0600 2009

I really enjoyed this shop when I was in on vacation. They were nice, greeted us immediately and helpful. My friend is a new knitter and I would not hesitate to send her there to learn to knit in a class, etc. We were there near the end of the day and I did feel a little rushed, but really, everyone wants to leave on time and I understand that!
