My vision has been to create a clean, bright, spacious and warm environment where you can explore your creativity and share your passion with a community. My wish is that you will help me keep this shop vibrant and inviting by sharing your ideas and desires.
The shop is set up with the yarn displayed on the walls. Each specific yarn is displayed with a card. That card is color-coded to help you find yarns quickly within a given weight (ie. all lace weight yarn will be displayed with a pink card, fingering with a white card, etc.) Each card gives all the details about that yarn: name, manufacturer, fiber content, yardage, gauge, washing instructions, and price. We have color key cards to guide you.
Each yarn is displayed with two skeins/hanks/balls of each color. The idea is that if you find a yarn you are interested in, take one of the two balls off the wall. We can then check inventory to see how much of that yarn we have in stock. It is a simple scan of the barcode. If you are someone who needs to see more yarn together to get a sense of that yarn, we will gladly bring more yarn forward for you.
We carry Chiao Goo lace, Addi Rockets and Knitter's Pride dreamz circular knitting needles and Boye metal and Bryspun wood crochet hooks. I have knit and crochet notions, buttons, books, bags and shawl pins.
The big table in front is always available to knit around. There is a couch and chairs in the back room to sit with friends. Coffee, tea, and water are always available. I encourage you to bring your own mug to keep at the shop. The cold water is filtered, and for now there are plastic bottles of water in the mini-fridge.
I hope you will drop by from time to time to see the shop evolve.
