What is your Ravelry name/group?
Where are you located and what are your hours?
We just moved to the heart of Gaithersburg (Montgomery County) on the edge of the historic district. We're located at 1 East Diamond Avenue, at the intersection of East Diamond and Chestnut Avenue (across from the side entrance to the fairgrounds).
We are open:
Wednesday/Thursday: 12-6 Friday: 12-8 Saturday: 10-5 Sunday: 12-5
Look for expanded hours during the Metro Yarn Crawl, from March 31st through April 9th this year.
We welcome knitting groups with a group discount, gift with purchase, and refreshments. We will even schedule special hours to accommodate your group.
What kinds of things do you carry?
We carry a large selection of America's finest artisan yarns, select international yarns, and hand-made jewelry. Our yarns cover all your fiber needs, from basic to luxury yarns.
We are intensifying our efforts to carry a large assortment of independent fiber artists and feature hand dyers, including hand spun yarns, not sold elsewhere in this area. Also, we've added some unique fashion accessories, specifically colorful, hand made/embroidered shawls, vests and jackets.
How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open your business?
We just started our third year in our new location. I have finally fulfilled a lifelong dream of opening a yarn store.
What's your favorite thing about having a LYS?
The celebration of color and texture which envelopes you the moment you walk into the shop. It is instantly calming and uplifting.
