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.
I hope this finds you chilling in a breeze on the beach, at the top of a mountain high enough to have year-round snow, or at least in the air conditioning with a big glass of tea at your side. It is really HOT out there. It reminds me of the heat wave we had in 1980. We were moving from Knoxville, TN to England. We flew out of Knoxville in the morning when it was 104 actual temperature, and arrived in London very early the next morning when it was 52. That was probably our oddest move ever. After all that heat we were not prepared for cold so suddenly. That heat wave is still considered one of our greatest natural disasters in terms of deaths and destruction, especially since there wasn’t nearly as much air conditioning as there is now. I’m not sure that makes me feel any cooler.
What’s new? We have more fabulous bags from Plymouth. These are handmade in Thailand in a variety of sizes and styles, all with very detailed embroidery in wonderful colors. They’re sturdy, have interior pockets, are comfortable to use and carry, and are very reasonably priced. We’ve been waiting awhile for these to come in and they probably won’t last long. They include some styles we haven’t had before. You’re going to love them.
We have some beautiful hand dyed cotton coming in any day from Great Adirondacks. I had a call today to let me know that they’re being dyed right now so we can expect it in a couple of weeks. Shortly after that, the new fall yarns start arriving. In this heat it’s hard to believe that fall is on the way.
We have new painted canvas from 9 different companies, so if you’re needle pointing, there’s probably something here for you. Small ornaments to large wall hangings, and a huge variety of subjects should give you plenty to choose from. We also have some new colors in from Waverly Wool to use on those canvases.
I want to thank you all for making our 15th birthday celebration wonderful. It was really heart warming to have so many friends come in to wish us Happy Birthday, although the sale and baked goodies might have had something to do with that. We’ve had a great 15 years, and we plan to have lots more, and that’s thanks to all of you who have made us a part of your community.
Moonlight Madness is August 19th, so make your reservations by the 17th. Keep cool and keep your needles moving. If you knit, crochet, or stitch fast enough, you’ll work up a nice breeze!
