Pros: cross stitches stores in manhattan

I went over to Stitches East today to pick up some sock yarn and to my dismay the store is no more. There is a Museum store in it's place. Please be aware that the store isn't at the 52nd E. Location anymore. It's unfortunate because it

Stitches East has a great selection of beautiful and different yarns. I have always found the staff very helpful. I read some of these other reviews and find it difficult to believe it is the same shop. Something has obviously changed.

I expected something upscale in terms of quality, price, customer service and a large selection, as their yellow pages ad declares that it is a "complete knit and needlepoint shop." The prices and small collection of products are

This shop is near my office and is my go-to LYS when I want to pick up some yarn on the spur-of-the-moment or meet up with friends for some lunchtime or afterwork knitting. There's a nice selection, and I've always found the staff to be

Pros: convenient location, knowledgeable staff

Cons: limited selection as compared to some of the larger stores in NYC

I've only been there once and the staff seemed nice. I told the woman what I was looking for and she recommended something to me that worked out very nicely. My biggest con with the store is that there are NO PRICES on anything!!

Pros: Good location, nice variety

Cons: No prices on skeins, needles seemed a little pricey

Staffing must have changed since earlier negative reviews, since I found the staff to be both gracious and helpful, as well as knowledgeable about knitting.

Pros: Knowledgeable staff

Cons: Hard to find: Inside Park Avenue Plaza lobby.

I have been here a few times, as this is the most convenient location to my work. I don't bother anymore, because the staff is terribly rude. They are unhelpful, and often treat me as if I don't have the first clue what I am doing. They

Cons: Snotty Staff, Very Expensive, Close Early

I've shopped there several times, and they ARE rude! They seem irritated if you look around. It's expensive, too.

New York City is fortunate to be blessed with a bunch of good shops for the Knitting fan. Stitches is larger than most and carries all sorts of supplies for needlepoint, knitting and other hand crafts. The staff are experts and will help you select patterns etc. for an enjoyable project. A nice friendly place, highly recommended.

All of the other negative reviews are right on the money. The salespeople are terrible, especially the manager who basically kicked me out of the store yesterday at 5:53 (they close at 6:00) because she "had things to do". I was shocked.

The salespeople are rude and ignore their customers, and everything costs a fortune! Each time I go, I try to put these bad experiences past me, but it all comes flooding back immediately. This is why I have never bought anything there.

Pros: luxury yarns

Cons: luxury prices, rude staff

The listing claims that they have a full range of needlepoints. However, they are clearly a knitting store and they have very little in the way of needlepoint. What they do have is really pretty unattractive. And the staff is strangely

The store does not have much of a selection, and the salespeople are unhelpfuland seem annoyed when I call with a question. Even a simple inquiry as to yarn availability leaves me feeling like I've just been an huge annoyance. No thanks!
