I hadn't visited this store in quite a while, and I'm glad to see that while it is still unassuming and friendly and helpfully staff. It is largely populated with lower-end and acrylic yarns, but they have enhanced their collections of nicer non-acrylics. They have a beautiful selection of Manos Del Uruguay and Brown Sheep's Lamb's Pride, some Noro, some Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, some sock yarns. They stock the largest selection of variegated and solid Sugar'n Cream (kitchen cotton) I have seen in the metro area. They have Lolomi Alpaca, raised and spun locally. And they have a great supply of needles: Clover, Brittany, Inox, Boye, Addi.

Very friendly. Comfortable setting. They are moving next door to a larger area with better light. They will carry more high end yarn.

One of the employees is just plain rude. She complained about children in the store and was rude to a disabled friend of mine. While she has an amazing memory for the kind of yarn I like, I'd never shop there again.
