Being new to the area, I was looking not only for a place that I could feel comfortable improving my knitting skills (and yarn stash), but a place that I could feel comfortable meeting new people! Boy did I pick the right place! The staff was not only knowledge filled, but extremely friendly and very helpful! I signed up for a 5 hr sock knitting workshop on a Sat. afternoon and found myself surrounded by a warm, welcoming and hillarious group of women, of all age groups, that all shared a common passion- yarn working! The woman instructing the class even when out of her way to contact another knitter she new that was in charge of a welcoming group to the city of Ada to help introduce me to the area!
I would recommend this 'yarn shop' to everyone, young or old, and encourage you to give it a shot, despite what some of the other reviews may say!

I have purchased yarn, needles, books, and attended classes over the past few years. The prices are a little higher, but you get what you pay for! The staff are insightful and helpful. If you have questions about yarn, patterns, & etc. they will try their best to resolve any issue. I wouldn't shop anywhere else!

I love this shop! The selection is awe-inspiring with a wide range of prices and fibers. The staff were very helpful and patient and I am looking forward to taking classes to improve my skill level. This one is not to be missed!

I will never set foot in there again! Owners both were there and too busy with inventory to help. A new sales person fumbled and bumbled while the owners looked on. They were too lazy or uninterested to help her help me. I spent an hour looking at patterns and was ready to spend up to 200.00 on yarn. I wasn't in a hurry and was willing to wait for good advice--I even dressed well! But I guess my address isn't right enough to merit their attention. Fortunately there are other stores in the area.

Wonderful selection of yarn, the owners of the store are helpful and caring but some of people who work there . . . whew, watch out. If you need assistance and they are busy with "the inner group" (which is often) you get the cold, cold shoulder and clipped answers. Not worth my dime or time.

Clever Ewe is set up in what appears to be someone's old house in downtown Ada. They have a great selection of yarns, and their staff is friendly. Still, I find myself uncomfortable when I shop there. I can't help but feel that everyone who works there is part of some special "group" that I'm not part of. Maybe it's just the mentality of the area, but I just don't feel like I fit in at this store. This place is more "Grandma knitting for kiddies" rather than the feminist "stitch n b*tch" i'm used to.

PROS: great selection of yarns
CONS: higher prices
