Welcome to Knit One, Stitch Too!
Your Charlotte area source for the best in knitting, crocheting, and needlepoint supplies, accessories, & instruction. We have a wide variety of yarns, needles, threads, books, patterns, bags, and gadgets.
Knit One, Stitch Too was opened in July 2001 by Betsy Weber to offer high quality supplies, accessories, and instruction to those interested in knitting, needlepointing, crocheting, and other needlearts. Over the years we have grown into a community of lively-minded needleartists of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds who enjoy sharing our love of needle work. You’re always welcome to come in and see what’s new, get help with your project, or just sit and relax with your needles for a while. We love having visitors!
We are a full service store so we also offer finishing of knitted, crocheted, and needlepoint items, or we will work the entire item for you. Our Christmas deadline for finishing is October 1 every year. We repair hand made items, and are always happy to provide estimates on repairs or teach you how to make repairs yourself.
Another Labor Day, kids are back in school – what’s next? You know it’s a store full of NEW YARNS and the CHARLOTTE AREA YARN CRAWL! Set your calendar for the 22nd through the 30th & get ready to Crawl. You can get all the details and print your passport online or on Face Book at Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl. You can also pick up your passport in the store during the Crawl. Just visit all 11 stores in the Charlotte Area and have your passport stamped at each one, then leave it at the last store you visit. Those passports with stamps from all 11 stores go into a drawing for the three top prizes: a $50 gift certificate at each store for first place, $30 gift certificate at each store for second place, and a $20 gift certificate at each store for third place. The remaining full passports plus those with 10 stamps go into a drawing for one of 22 gift baskets each worth at least $100. You’ll want to visit since we’ll all have special events during the crawl.
We’re featuring a trunk show from Feza during the Crawl, which will have lots of yarns from the companies they distribute along with finished garments and great pattern ideas. We’ll also have special displays of Sugar Bush yarns and Great Adirondack yarns. I’ve loved Great Adirondack yarns for at least 20 years. Patti is one of the best dyers around, and she uses fabulous yarns. Sugar Bush is a fairly new company from Canada, and their yarns are remarkable with fabulous colors. You’ll want to see all of them.
We have new goodies from Addi, some of our favorite needles. They have a new charm bracelet with the charms being very clever stitch markers. We have both sizes of bracelets and all the charms so you can personalize your marker collection. They are fun to wear as you express your knitting self, and keep your markers close at hand.
You know everything in the store will be on sale during the Yarn Crawl, so you can save money on everything! We’ll have some surprises, too, so you’ll want to come in more than once. If that’s not enough, we’ll have a door prize drawing every day.
What’s new? Too much to put in one newsletter and keep to one page! We have our new fall yarns in from all but one company so we are bursting at the seams. To make room, we’ve moved lots of older yarns to the 50% off area, so there are plenty of good deals there. If you follow us on Face Book, you’ve seen pictures of many of the new yarns. We have at least two or three new yarns from every company we carry, and lots of new colors of old yarns.
WE WILL BE OPEN NORMAL HOURS ON LABOR DAY 11 -5. STOP BY AND VISIT US!
The important dates this month include the 15th for Sit & Stitch. That will be from 6 – 11 pm and will include a delicious dessert. If you’re coming, make your reservations by the 13th. The Yarn Crawl is the 22nd through the 30th. We will be open from 1 – 5 on that Sunday. We missed Knitted Knockers, so if you’re having problems or questions, stop in any time. We never charge for a few minutes of help. On October 1, the Pink Lady will be coming out to pick up our knockers so let’s see how many we can get done by then. She’s picking up at two sites from all the yarn stores in the area & we want to do everything we can to fill her up! A great reason to keep your needles moving!
