What kinds of things do you carry?
We search out unique and hard to find yarns and tools to our knit and crochet community. We specialize in indie and US made companies (Brooklyn Tweed, Stonehedge Fiber Mill and Jill Draper Makes Stuff, for example) and are most known for our amazing selection of hand dyed yarns. Here are a few: Neighborhood Fiber Co., Miss Babs, Freia, the Fiberists and Hazel Knits. We’ve also got some interesting imports that you might not see anywhere else: Kalinka by Karen Oberg, BC Garn Semilla and Semilla Fino and a variety of notions and accessories from too!
How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open your business?
My teaching business, Knit-a-Gogo, Inc was started in 2006. The retail shop grew out of that business (after a lot of begging and pleading by my students!). We opened our doors in July 2009.
What's your favorite thing about having your business?
I love being inspired by my customer’s creativity. Every day, someone points out a new great pattern that they found or puts together two colors that I would never have thought of putting together. I really have the greatest job in the world.
