Walked in to maybe start knitting again. Best experience ever!!! Owner is passionate and kind. Showed all kinds of ideas and renewed the interest. Gonna make a pair of socks and see where it goes. Loved the shop – thanks Heather –
I am visually impaired, and I wanted to learn how to knit. The owner, Heather, worked with me and was so patient. Not only that, but her teaching techniques were spot on!
