I went to the Knitting Place in Venice, Florida today, (Nov 24, 2009) after checking them out online and looking forward to getting yarn for about 4 projects. The attitude of the management was deplorable. I was treated like a criminal. First they wouldn't leave me alone to look around. The owner kept telling her assistant to keep her eye on me. Then she said to her "This is going nowhere" nodding towards me, obviously implying that I was taking too long to make up my mind. As all serious knitters know, you don't make a yarn purchase in a split second, specially when you have about 4 projects in mind. My friend, who is a resident of Venice, sat at the table waiting for me and was infuriated by the way they were speaking about me. I was oblivious because I was engrossed in making my selections, a situation that all serious knitters and yarn lovers can identify with. I ended up spending only about $60.00 - and that included a yarn felting tool, when I had gone in with a budget of $400.00. Their rudeness to me, a serious customer, who had sought them out all the way from Ontario Canada, was inexcusable. I was hurt and disappointed by the way I was treated and will never go there again.

If you're a knitter you'll want to check this place out. They have a very good selection and the staff is very helpful. They have a lot of great ideas on how to proceed. It's a nice easy to find place that's centrally located.
