About Jan Compton

I have been attempting to knit on and off for years. Now that the economy is failing, it seems like the perfect time.

The selection isn't as extensive as some might want however the customer service more than makes up for it. Any question you have are answered so you can understand them with patience. Rebecca has also offered to order and deliver items if necessary. It is a great place to go and learn.

I love this shop. The people that work here are so knowledgeable & they are always willing to help. They also just let you go in and touch the wonderful yarn. I could & have spent hours in there soaking up the atmosphere and asking a ton of questions.

Although this is the local shop for me I do not go there anymore. Unless you are actually purchasing something they tend to ignore you or tell you that you should come and take a class. Of course if you take a class even if you have the supplies you need they insist that you purchase from them. I understand that it is a small business and they need the customers however I would be more inclined to shop there if they had been more willing to let me practice with my own stuff so then I could graduate to some of their products.

Sometimes it feels a little "clubby" but worth the trip nonetheless
