Amazing threads may be tucked away in Maple Grove but worth the find. Along with what they tout “amazing threads,” the gals who work there are the friendliest and most helpful. They offer classes and teach them in a beautiful sun lit loft.

Tucked away off France, Needlework Unlimited offers up all the yarns and patterns you could ever want and wonderful notions too. The staff is very helpful and they’ve been written up in one of the national knitting magazines.

The Yarnery was voted best knitting story by City pages. I have never been, but if you count experience as criteria for a good knitting store, the Yarnery has been around for 35 years. It’s in a house! Knitters like a homey feel. The Yarnery offers that plus, great yarn selection and classes.

What I have heard about 3 kittens are the gals who run the shop. This is a fun knitting store. Those I know who frequent 3 Kittens always have stories about their visits. Great yarn selection, books and patterns and they offer kits for those who like a little help in get a project started.
Silver Creek Cabin

A friend invited me to Silver Creek Cabin. It’s located in the lower level of a store. It doesn’t seem like much as you head down the stairs until you get into the shop. It’s like a warehouse; rows upon rows of yarn! The lighting is dim in some parts of the store so you have to walk around to more well lit parts to test your colors. But a friendly owner is more than accommodating in helping you get what you need. Lots of pre-knit gift ideas too.
