It's a great place to go. I love that it's only right around the corner. It's the kind of store that will stay open if you call to say you're coming. I have never had a bad experience and would recommend it to anyone.

The shop has a VERY limited selection from previous visits, and the selections they do have are never enough to make more than a very small project -- getting multiple skeins in the same color is quite difficult. I am making this review because I headed there (from Virginia)on Oct. 1. After I parked on the street at paid the ridiculous $2 for metered parking, my mom and I are walking up the street when we see that the store is EMPTY. Someone had just carried a box outside into a moving truck. I asked what was going on and they said that they're moving to Tenley Town. I asked why it wasn't on their website because I had checked it before we left Fibre Space (GREAT LYS) in Alexandria. She (the owner, Marie) said that it wasn't updated because she couldn't figure it out, but that her FACEBOOK was updated. Who checks Facebook for a LYS you never go to?! Why wouldn't the website be updated?? So, when I did check their Facebook when I got home, she had posted on her Facebook at 9:24 that morning!!! How is that keeping your customers informed?! My mom and I had a Groupon each to use and when we make it up to their new location, we will NOT be returning.

An amazing store. Amazing selection. Friendly, funny, helpful AND knowledgable staff. The owner of the store actually taught me how to knit at the StitchDC location in Georgetown (now closed) and I'm so glad that she left them to open this WONDERFUL yarn store. Even though it's not really convenient for me to get to, I still go out of the way to make it to this LYS.
