About Us

We’re just finishing our 31st year in Gainesville. Wow!  Hard to believe that we’ve been here for what sounds like forever. It has been quite wonderful, but challenging, to keep the store up to your expectations. We hope we have succeeded and are looking forward to “carrying on”.

We have lots of beautiful yarn to knit and crochet and new bags to put it all in. There are new needlepoint canvases to enjoy.  Let us show you some fabulous fibers to enhance your piece and your working pleasure. There is a lot of enjoyment in handwork and you should have fun doing it.

We have a lot of needlepoint, handpainted by the finest painters, along with wonderful fibers, to make your stitching a pleasure.

We carry yarns from Plymouth, Berroco, Cascade, Malabrigo, Trendsetter, Zen Yarn Garden, Frabjous Fibers, Universal and many other specialty companies.  

We have fiber for spinning that is hand dyed locally and some from indie dyers and commercial dyers. There are wool, wool blends, and a wonderful nylon "faux cashmere" that feels very much like real cashmere but spins like silk.
