I was very disappointed with the yarn selection. I was looking for silks, cashmeres and hard to find items, but what i found was a lot of acrylic and acrylic blends, in only a small variety of colors. There is actually a better selection at large chain craft stores. There are no price tags on items and the notions that they offer (knitting needles, crochet hooks, etc.) are grossly over priced. As for the staff... I found their attitude to be condescending and unhelpful.

Cons: selection isn't great and the staff is useless

all my experiences at yarn garden have been good.. Their yarns and directions exceed my expectations and staff works hard to please customers at all times. I would definitely recommend tham to all knitters.

I've been to yarn shops all over the country and this place is WONDERFUL! CC is the best designer I've ever met and Joanie is a great instructor with good color sense. They've got the largest selection of yarn on Long Island and I LOVE all the bamboo and soy yarns they carry since I often knit for family and friends that are allergic to wool. Besides knitting supplies they've got a large selection of excellent needlepoints and lots of American made candles and soaps! I don't know if they've changed their shop since that first review in 2005 but the shop is NOT cramped or dark and they were quite attentive to me from the very first time I came into the store. Oh, where on Long Island is parking NOT a problem???

Four years ago i walk into the Yarn Garden and i was not knitter today i am a regular customer . Most people that go there just love it and the people who own the shop are the best. They take the time over and over to help me with my projects. In good times and also bad you can count on the great service at the yarn garden

While this store carries a good selection of yarns and other knitting supplies, I go there under extreme duress if I really need something and can not get it elsewhere. The people are not very friendly or helpful and seem only to want to please their regular customers. The store is somewhat dark and cramped which isn;t conducive to comfortable shopping. Located in a small strip store mall, the parking is also difficult as times.
