It's the texture and color 5/12/2006

I know how to crochet and knit, but I know that my attraction to yarn and the things it can produce is more about color and texture. Hilltop Yarn is beautiful inside. It's got tons of awesome and unique yarn (with some prices to match) but I just love to walk around in the store and touch the different items. It's really great and very inspiring. Now I just have to find someone to make me stuff! more

nice yarn but expensive 12/29/2005

i live close enough to hilltop to walk there, yet i won't go there unless i'm having a 'knitting emergency'. they have the same yarn as places like 'so much yarn' but they are more expensive, AND their staff is, well, not the most helpful. to tell the truth, i've been in there (twice now) the staff has bordered on surly. it's too bad - they have true potential with their location and space. hopefully they'll pick things up a bit, otherwise i have no interest in returning or sending anyone there. more

Excellent teachers and staff 8/26/2005

On a recommendation, I took a particular teacher's beginner class at Hilltop Yarns a little over a year ago. I really valued her patience and clear way of explaining concepts. When I am ready for some more advanced techniques, I'll probably reserve an hour of her time for a one-on-one class. The other staff is also excellent -- very friendly and knowledgeable, and they make very good suggestions. I like the yarn offerings too, and was glad to see the shop phase out its needlepoint stock (since I don't give two straws about needlepoint! Make room for more yarn! Especially Rowan!). And I should also mention how beautiful the shop itself is (very). Hilltop has a frequent buyer program, and your purchases are conveniently tracked on the store's computer for you. But I have to say that I think the fee is too high ($10, if I recall), and you have a year to purchase $250 in order to earn your $25 certificate, and once you get your certificate, it expires in 90 days. I'd rather take advantage of a frequent buyer program that didn't have so many strings attached -- like Acorn Street's, or even better, Seattle Yarn Gallery (punch card is free). more

Yarn Glorious Yarn 8/22/2005

On the top of Queen Anne, in and old house that has been converted to retail, resides the Hilltop Yarn and Needlepoint shop. Inside are dazzling displays of what can be created from the many different yarns they sell. Some of the projects are so easy, a novice could do them. Others require skill and technique, but not to worry, they teach classes too. If youstill think knitting is boring, then you haven't been to the Hilltop Yarn and Needlepoint store! more

Friendly Yarn 8/21/2005

Hilltop Yarn is located on the top of Queen Anne in a lovely house. The shop is spread out over several rooms. The selection is impressive. One room seems to be almost entirely Rowan Yarns and pattern books. The store also sells their own brand of inexpensive patterns, several of which are shawls or capelettes. They offer many specialty fiber yarns such as hemp and bamboo, which is like silk. more

Yarn high and low 8/21/2005

A craftsman on Queen Anne is the perfect match for this welcoming yarn shop. Overcrowded in a way that inspires an I-must-touch-it-all outlook, you’ll always find something new amongst Hilltop’s merchandise. An assortment of classes, a library (literally!) of books, and a bench full of knitting needles ensure that you can find all you need for your project - help with a new technique, the pattern, the yarn, the tools to do your work. more

Great yarn shop 8/17/2005

It feels great just walking into this yarn shop. The yarns are displayed beautifully in this old house on the top of Queen Anne. They have wonderful samples on display which is very inspiring. I took beginning knitting here and had a great instructor named Susan. The yarns are pricey, but they are at all yarn shops. When you take a class, you get a discount in the store. Although the location is not terribly convenient for those not living on Queen Anne, the shop is a couple of blocks south of the main shopping area, so parking is not a problem at all. more
