What our Customers have to say

Visited this cozy shop earlier today. Wasn't really in the market for yarn, but desperately needed buttons for a baby cardi. The lady, Donna, was very helpful and we had a long chat discovering that we have several things (besides yarn) in common. Would highly recommend, whatever your skill. There are social events too, so you won't leave without making a new friend!
