Originally went to Acorn looking for Needlepoint supplies, which they have a limited supply of, however have continued to shop due to there friendly service and willingness to try and find what works for you. This last winter I was trying to find a ball winder to give as a Christmas present and we had a snowstorm, but when I called to see if they would still be open the person I spoke to said she would wait for me. The have a wide range of yarns, ranging from pricey to affordable (they don't seem to carry any really low end yarns). Depending on the time of day it can be hard to find parking.

I went because they claim to have needlepoint supplies on their website. A very, very small collection of needlepoint yarns and threads - very sloppy and dirty and disorganized presentation of the minimal supplies they had. If I ever take up knitting I would still not patronize shop. Personal was unhelpful and totally ignorant and disinterested in my search. "Whatever we have is over there." "We don't order needlepoint materials on any regular basis." If this is the case they should take this off their website and be honest about it.

I don't usually do this just to be a contrarian but I have a very mixed feeling about this place. Maybe if you are a power knitter and buy a ton of stuff at this place you would like it, but I went there to try to get something simple for my daughter to learn on and was pretty put off. The woman who I think is the owner is way too condescending for my taste. I admit they have lots of great yarn, although the prices for some of it blew me away. But if I were a beginner looking for pleasant help this sure isn't where I'd go for it.

Big things come in small packages. From the outside this shop appears small and unassuming, but once inside you're surrounded by a cozy atmosphere, helpful staff, and a great selection of yarns and accessories.

I was amazed when I walked through the door of this shop! The size of it doesn't seem like there would be very much, however when you get in the door you'll find there to be a huge selection. Lots of different colors and textures and plenty of help if you need it. Their prices aren't bad either. Not only is the staff very friendly, but the customers are too, every time I've been in there I've ended up chatting away with someone about the projects that we are working on.

PROS: great selection
CONS: bad parking

My wife bought yarn at this shop to make my eggplant hat. I was impressed with the wide array of colors and textures as well as the variety of buttons. The space is small and a bit hard to navigate at times, but the staff members are quite helpful with all manners of knitting-related questions. It is hard to find parking around this shop, and one is quite lucky if one of the few parking spots are available beside the store.

PROS: great staff
CONS: hard to find parking

This has one of the best yarn selections in Seattle! They have a large variety and are always getting new yarns in. The shop offers a mediocre selection of books and needles. They have a moderate selection of classes and offer individual instruction at a reasonable price.
