Excellent quality and quantity of yarns at affordable prices. The staff are very warm, helpful and hospitable. They will greet you upon walking in and a pleasant goodbye upon exit. No pressure whatsoever to buy their products and hounding you to buy this and that or following you around the store. It’s a very fun and relaxing environment. The class educators are very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this yarn store. It’s the very best that I have frequented in the entire metropolitan Detroit area.
