From the 1st day I walked into the shop I've been charmed by the surroundings, the helpful staff & all the "treasures" I go home with after a visit! I stop by other yarn stores in my travels & none compare to Amazing Threads. I hope this is & will be your experience on your visit.

Every summer I spend part of the time in MN and especially look forward to going to the Amazing Threads so that I can stock up on all the knitting supplies I use for all my winter knitting projects. None can compare with their vast aray of model sample garments, their wide variety of basic to frivilous yarns in every color, and I really appreciate their knowledgable and helpful salespeople. This past summer, I was trying to find THE perfect, and easy to make baby present, a car seat blacket was suggested. I ended up making 4!!!! Also, I appreciate the weekly blogs which keep me informed and motivated AND they ship to AZ!!!! Amazing Threads is my go to place either onsite or online.

I've been a customer at Amazing Threads for over 5 years. I love that shop! It's packed with beautiful yarns, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The shop has social knitting groups, too, and great teachers for classes, along with a beautiful website. It's my go-to yarn shop.

I was visiting my family in Minnesota and was thrilled to find a yarn shop within a few miles of the hotel. The yarn selection was wonderful, unfortunately the customer service was awful. I spent a fair chunk of money and was treated like I had a disease. The mistreatment wasn't due to a lack of staff, there were several women working plus the owner of the shop. I guess when you are the only yarn shop in town, customer service doesn't matter. Too bad because it is a lovely shop with a wonderful inventory.

Great shop with the best selection in town. Knit club members get 10% once they spend $500. Helpful staff that know how to knit and can substitute based on my needs. This shop has more samples and inspiration than any in town.

Great selection of yarn. Staff is somewhat helpful. Good selection of knitting books. Needles are behind counter which I don't like as I like to look at several different types without asking or needing assistance.

I also have had horrible customer service at Amazing Threads, it is a beautiful shop with a wonderful yarn selection but the staff and especially the owner of the shop have no interest in helping you unless you are going to spend a lot of money there. I have tried this shop 5 times in hopes that maybe people where having a off day or they were just too busy to help but I have had the same experience each time and I will never shop there again.

My son and I stopped into this store today as he is interested in learning to knit. I clearly stated many times that neither of us had any prior knowledge about knitting and as I asked questions and answers were given it was as if we had some idea of what was being said. I stated again it??s as if you??re speaking another language, the terms being used meant nothing to someone without any knowledge of knitting. The topper was when I asked if I found a book with some directions for beginning knitters and a pattern for the hat my son wanted to make (as we were not directed to one at this store) if she could help with purchasing what was needed to make the hat from her store. I was told if they weren??t busy MAYBE, since I hadn??t purchased the book from there store. How can they possible think with today??s economy and families buying only essentials that that sort of customers service will bring people back??? Word of mouth travels far?as I was at Joann??s I bumped into a nice older lady that was more than willing to help, I share my experience and she stated OH good then it wasn??t just me, they are extremely rude unless you??re taking lessons there. It??s really disappointing to come to a specialty store and be treated like this, I don??t mind spending a little extra for great service but NOT for the service I was given or the way I was treated!!!
I will definitely pass the word along

I admit, I am not an avid knitter or crocheter but I have been known to pick up the needles occasionally. You could spend a whole afternoon in this shop, and you should. There are yarns here like you won't believe.
