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.
Can you believe Christmas is almost here? It doesn’t seem possible except that we are in the middle of finishing a good number of Christmas stockings, customers are coming in for stocking stuffers for their favorite crafters, and we are having our inventory reduction sale – all sure signs that the holidays are near! We have lots of quick and easy gift ideas, some you can complete in an evening, that everyone will love, and the yarn is on sale!
But first, there is always new yarn. The first is a great one you already know – Baby Gradient Blanket Kits from Feza. This is the wonderful 50% cotton 50% viscose yarn that comes in two solids with a variegated that combines both colors. Monokrom from urth yarns is 100% extrafine superwash hand-dyed merino fingering weight. They think we’re going to make socks with it, and they will be fantastic socks. I plan to use it for a large scarf. The colors are fabulous shades of jewel tones or neutrals and it’s amazingly soft. This yarn will feel good to knit and wear and even buy because urth yarns has partnered with Trees for the Future. For each skein sold, they will plant a tree in Africa. The label shares that “planting trees not only prevents soil degredation but provides food, marketable products, and fuel wood for families, increasing their income by 400%”. Check #knitoneplantone.
No, not time for the sale yet – first the KAL party. For all of you who signed up for the Knit A Long, our party is Sunday, December 16th from 1 – 4 pm. Bring your item unless we’ve already seen it and come prepared for food, fun, and prizes!
Now for the SALE!!! As usual we’re having our Inventory Reduction Sale this month. Inventory is my least favorite thing so if you buy it, I won’t have to count it, and I’ll be very, very happy at inventory time.
- All yarn and thread are 20% OFF.
- Painted canvas, beads, buttons, and jewelry are 30% OFF.
- Books and magazines are 40% OFF.
- There will also be spontaneous specials so stop in often!
As long as we’re talking about inventory, we’ll have to close for a few days to count everything. The years we’ve tried to do while we were open have not been pretty. So we will close on December 25th for Christmas and take inventory for the rest of that week. We will reopen on December 31st for business as usual. You all know if you show up at the door with a problem and look suitably pitiful, I’ll let you in. You might have to count a few things while I fix your problem, but I will let you in.
Knitted Knockers is it the 7th this month and Sit & Stitch is the 21st. If you’re coming, you must let us know by the 19th. We wish you all a wonderful Christmas and happy holiday season and don’t forget to keep your needles moving to reduce stress and keep yourself sane.
PS We’re happy to take calls from friends and relatives who want to give you a gift card and don’t have time to come in or wouldn’t be seen dead in a yarn shop. Just tell them we take all credit cards.
