About radiocrane

New but determined knitter and crocheter on a mission to become something more than a novice. Enjoys horror movies, cooking and reading when not fiddling with accidentally dropped stitches and impossibly tangled yarn.

about The Enchanted Needle on Mon Aug 10 22:58:48 -0500 2009

This store is right at the corner of Weston Rd. and Steeles like the previous poster said. The TTC (bus) stops right at the intersection. A nice cozy little store with friendly and knowledgeable staff - on each visit their staff has always been sure to come ask if I need assistance/told me to just ask if I have any questions, then let me browse in peace for as long as I need. The main floor carries a good selection of embroidery supplies, while the smaller upper area (up a flight of stairs) carries most of their yarn and knit/crochet supplies. A good, varied selection of yarn for the size of the knitting section of the store. A decent offering of patterns and pattern books, both upstairs and on the main floor by the door. From what I recall the selection of hooks and knitting needles and other supplies is on the smaller side. Not really near anything else interesting but overall good as an LYS for those in the north-west end of Toronto or the surrounding area.

Plan to have a good amount of free time if you are coming here to just browse. An hour or two is a good idea. I think because of the size and nature of the shop it's smart to just go ahead and ask for assistance whenever you need it, from more than one sales associate if necessary. The one woman who helped my mother and I out was happy to assist us on the several occasions we needed it in the one trip we made there, showing us various yarns that would work for a pattern, helping us figure out how much yarn we should buy, and giving us a hand choosing needles from the huge selection they have there. The Romni is best for their immense selection, their discount basement, and those days you feel like having a yarn adventure, but not so much for actually finding what you need quickly.
