Fabulous Selection, Cheerful & Approachable Staff 9/5/2008

I first found this store in the summer of 2007 while in NYC for work. I travel all over the country & make a point of visiting yarn shops in every city I visit or work in. This is a small shop as far as sq. ft. They squeeze a lovely & diverse selection in without it feeling overly cramped. It feels cozy. The variety of both colors & fiber types is significant. This is the best set of "sale" bins I've seen. I say this because there is always a variety of colors & fibers for sale. I'm in NYC for a year or so & am so glad this store is close. The staff are cheerful, pleasant & strike just the right balance between giving a customer space & being available to answer questions. They are equally welcoming to veteran & novice knitters. I know this because I'm usually in the store for over an hour contemplating the selection, so I see their interaction with a variety of people. I've seen quite a variety of people in the store from theatre folk to Park Ave ladies to students. I like the diversity & warmth of the clientele. I recommend this store to both the novice & the veteran as worth the trip.. several trips. Pros: Variety of fibers/colors, Welcoming Staff Cons: no room for a mid-size table to congregate around more

Good Yarn Store with Great Service 2/25/2008

The selection of yarn is not a large as you would get elsewhere in larger stores but there are some more funky yarns that you might not get elsewhere. The prices are about the same as anywhere else in NYC but the service here was great. The ladies are very helpful and eager to talk about patterns and yarn and knitting. Highly recommended. more

Welcoming arms for experienced and novice Knitters. 10/3/2007

I love this place!! I always used to be intimidated when I passed by the store since I was not an experienced knitter. Now over some years I have built the confidence to enter the store. Beautiful yarns, customer service is great!! The two wonderful women working there Jane and Andrea are very helpful and inviting. They are ready to answer any questions and encourage you to bring your project with questions. Great place for beginners! Did I already say I love this place?! :) Pros: Fabulous customer service, Very knowledgeable and inviting. Cons: Small store need more space more

awesome customer service 8/23/2007

I've been to knitting/crochet stores all over Manhattan & Brooklyn. Though this store is small & doesn't have tons of supplies, their friendly customer service keeps me coming back. They're unpretensious, nice and they won't charge you or recommend you take a class for advice....they give it freely and happily. In a city that lacks nice people, this store is a wonderful place to find a smiling face. Cons: tiny more

Worth Checking Out 3/12/2006

This cute little shop, while overflowing, has a wonderful selection of funky and interesting yarns at reasonable prices. The sales are terrific, selling high end yarns at good prices for the budgetarily inclined. The salespeople were sweet and incredibly helpful - they even pulled fresh skeins for me when there weren't enough so that I had a complete set from the same dye lot. more

I love the yarn connection! 4/28/2004

What a great little store! Who would've thought that right on Madison ave, smack in midtown, there could be such an unpretentious gem of a store? I particularly enjoyed the sales; in fact, I had to stop myself from purchasing more and I regret this... Hmm, maybe I'll go there this weekend. The 2 salespeople were extremely helpful: they did all sorts of calculations needed for a yarn substitution. Thank you! Pros: helpful staff, great selection, fantastic sales more
