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.

DCF 1.0

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.

 

JULY GREETINGS!

Summer is finally here – not that we can notice a difference between spring and summer this year.  It’s just going to be hot so all we need to do is accept we’ll have to take care of outdoor things early or late in the day and spend the middle of the day knitting, crocheting, and stitching.  Sounds like a terrible problem, I know, but I’m sure we can all manage.

Our KAL Party was wonderful!  Check out our Facebook page for pictures.  Due to popular demand we will be having another KAL this fall.  The details will be available in August, but we’ll be focusing on gifts and small projects.

The really important news this month is OUR BIRTHDAY!!!  We are 17 years old on July 2nd.  I find that totally amazing.  I never would have believed we’d still be here 17 years ago.  I thought maybe 8 or 10 years and I would retire.  Who knew this would be so much fun I couldn’t stop?  And you should all know I just signed another 3-year lease, so we’ll be around for a while longer.

Birthdays do mean parties and, in our case, that means a BIRTHDAY SALE, too.  We will party for 17 days starting on July 2.  The 2nd is our real birthday, so there will be cake (there might be cake on other days, too, but no promises).  As usual we will be closed on Sundays so the party will continue through July 20.  What’s the SALE?  EVERYTHING WILL BE 17% OFF!!  If that’s not enough, we‘ll have a DAILY DOUBLE EVERY DAY.   That means that something will be 34% OFF for that day.  It could be a gadget, a yarn, everything from one yarn company – who knows?  We will announce them daily on our Instagram and Facebook page, or you could also just come in and see every day.  We always welcome people who want to hang out and knit, stitch, or crochet with us, as well as those who just want to browse.  And you never know when there will be cake.

Yarn Project Bowls 01We just received some wonderful new yarn and project bowls, although one has already gone out of the store intending to become a cat bed.  They’re recycled wooden bowls and canisters of all sorts – beautifully finished, full of character and no two are alike.

Our new yarn this month is the June Wonderland Yarns’ Year In Color birthstone.  It’s pearl and they have dyed it black pearl.  Actually it’s a blend of black, purple, pink and silver, and it is all gorgeous.  I can’t wait to knit it up.

Knitted Knockers is the 6th this month and Sit & Stitch it the 20th.  You need to sign up by the 18th if you want to come.  This is the last day of our Birthday Celebration and Sale, so there will definitely be cake and fun and a great evening.

Have a fabulous 4th of July and keep your needles moving!

Betsy
