about Lovelyarns on Wed Sep 12 14:41:07 -0500 2012

Not cool for beginners. The new shop is cute (though very poorly air conditioned) and there is a good selection of nice yarn...BUT Lovely Yarn does not practice what it preaches and does not cater to beginner knitters. I followed the advice of Lovely Yarn owner and instructors and took 3 different knit classes (basic, hat, sock). I was told at each class to drop in anytime for assistance if I got stuck on a project. It took quite a car ride for me to "drop in" but I thought it would be worth it to get additional help because as a rank beginner I was easily and repeatedly stuck. It was late in the day when I arrived and store owner was brusque in her manner, initially she tried to assist but quickly became frustrated with me and told me I needed help with the basics and to sign up for another class! Ok..... I did and was again reassured that any time I was stuck to just pop in and I'd get lots of friendly help. Well I thought maybe the poor response l received the last time I dropped in was just a bad day/time so I dropped in a second time for help. Again I have to take quite a car trip to reach Lovely Yarn. After minimal assistance I was yet again brushed off by the owner Sue, and again instructed to "take another class". Lovely Yarn is NOT lovely by my standards. You know it is really not cool for the owner to repeatedly tell beginner knitters who pay $$ to take classes at Lovely Yarn to "drop in anytime for help" if you aren't going to stand behind that commitment. I was truly inconvenienced and disappointed by Lovely Yarn's false advertisement of helpfulness. I've signed up for knitting classes at close by Woolworks and won't be back to Lovely Yarn. Lovely Yarn has created itself some bad yarn karma.
