Great shop with knowledgeable staff and excellent customer service. If they do not have what you are looking for, which would surprise me with the amazing selection they have, they can usually tell you where to find it. Grab some lunch and a project, come to the shop and have a seat at one of the tables and enjoy the afternoon. They also offer coffee and hot teas with no charge...... What a place !!!!

A warm and friendly shop with a large variety of classes from learning to knit and crochet to spinning, weaving, yoga and so much more. The shop offers a great studio space to come in a simply sit with a cup of tea or coffee and work on a project.

I especially like the fact that they are willing to fix my mistakes in my project and I can get back to work again.

Have had dealings with this store via a gift for a class. There was a misunderstanding and the store did not take the high road or opt for good customer service. Thus said I would steer away from this store at all costs if you want someone who really cares about your business. In this day and age it is about good customer service which in turn promotes loyal customers.

Business Response:

We wanted to take this opportunity to response to Kathleen J??s post. We recently had a Groupon offer for a ??Beginner??s Knitting Workshop? for $17. This workshop had a specially designed curriculum for beginning knitters. Kathleen J received a Groupon coupon as a gift. Through several emails communications, she stated that she was an experienced knitter and asked us to redeem the $17 Groupon for a $40, four hour ??sock class.? We happily offered, as an exception, to give her a $17 credit for the ??Beginner??s Knitting Workshop? so she could take the ??sock class,? if she paid the difference between the cost of the two classes. She felt that this was an unacceptable proposition and wanted the longer and more advanced class at no additional cost. We again attempted to resolve this by explaining to her how Groupon works and why we were unable to honor her request. In a final attempt to satisfy her, we suggested that she contact Groupon for a refund. We pride our business on providing great customer service, but sadly, we were not able to come to an understanding that would be fair to both parties.

If you are looking for cheap knitting supplies- yarn, needles, etc.- you should look elsewhere. This is not to say that they overcharge, but rather that they do not carry inferior products. (No acrylic "yarn by the pound" or plastic needles). The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to help you, but be prepared for an occasionally quirky sense of humor.

TYF carries a very good selection of yarns, including alpaca, wool, bamboo, and cotton in both national and local brands. They have a very good email newsletter, weekly knitting classes for various techniques and skill levels, spinning classes and supplies, and a very nice central work area. They also invite in authors and designers, and have a "lending library."

Check it out- it's only a few blocks away from the university.

If you're a knitter then this place probably has the largest variety of yarns you'll find anywhere around. But I went there looking for needlepoint yarn -- they seemed to think that was a strange request, as if they'd never heard of such a thing.

Decent variety of yarn and roving. Open friendly atmosphere- they have potlucks and tea parties. I felt very much at home here!

In addition to a wide variety of newer yarn types (bamboo etc) they will happily order specially for you, which is really nice.

If you are a beginner knitter/crocheter they have classes and knitalongs.

I love this place - I wish it were closer to my house. Very kid-friendly. In fact, they even took out blocks for my kids to play with while I shopped.

I have found yarn here that I haven't anywhere else. The staff is friendly & helpful. They keep your purchases on file in the computer, which was helpful when I didn't have the label from a ball of yarn I bought, and needed another one. Yarn in many price ranges.

Definitely worth the trip, if you don't live close-by. Check out their website for a great monthly newsletter.
