Comfort Food for Fiber Artists
Curl up on our sofa and stay awhile…. Our store is filled with inspiration you can touch, ideas to inspire you, fibers from the sublime to funky. Run your fingers through alpaca, silk, merino wool, angora, linen, fanciful handspun fibers, cottons, and more…. we provide textures and fibers for all tastes whether you are new to knitting or are a fiber artist.
Color is our world… eco-fibers, such as bamboo, handspun wool drenched in natural color, share space with hand painted fibers and beaded yarns…fibers that tantalize and please the fiber palette. We provide equal parts inspiration, knowledge, encouragement, and humor to see you through the most challenging of projects.
We are fiber enthusiasts…fill your bag with some of the finest fibers in the world. We are nestled in the wine country, only 60 miles north of San Francisco. Fit in a stop during wine tasting in our region, eat at some of our great restaurants, or visit a farmer’s market. We provide a global assortment of fibers of superb quality and we love sharing our treasures with you.
Fiber Feeds our Soul
We want to share our passion for fiber…our store is brimming with possibilities, bursting with potential projects, designer buttons, fashionable patterns, and one of the largest knitting bag selection north of the Golden Gate. You can forget what time it is, time seems to suspend, as you get lost in our dizzying selection of scrumptious yarn. We are thankful for our loyal customers, who can be found pitching in on a busy day, offering suggestions along with our staff, bringing brownies to our Friday night knitting get together, and inspiring us with their beautiful projects.
We are an interesting bunch… our staff and customers are as colorful and as interesting as our yarn and patterns. We’ve created the store of our dreams, it embodies our many talents and backgrounds; we wanted our store to be a source of inspiration for weavers, knitters, spinners, felters, dreamers, and artists that love fibers.
We love to teach...learn to master cables, lacework, intricate crochet, warping a loom, or carding wool, we love to teach as much as we love to learn. From adults to children we have classes for everyone’s ability; treat yourself to one of our classes and let our expert staff expand your fiber horizons.
Fiber Arts are Therapy
Do you need some “you time”? Stop in any day, we are open 7 days a week, sit in our rocker or sofa, and stay awhile, take a breathe, go into that still place we all get to when we knit, weave, crochet, or spin. Give us a call or drop in and ask questions, and please drop by and show us your finished projects. Did we say we love photos, post them on Facebook or come by the shop and we will take a photo of you and your latest creation. You inspire us!
