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.
We have the MOST WONDERFUL NEWS!!!!! Our Project Exhibition raised over $1000 for the Brian C Weber Memorial Travel Fund!!!! That will help several children get to medical centers where they can get a diagnosis and treatment plan for their Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS). Thank you all for supporting this by lending us your garments and making donations. It’s amazing the difference this small amount of money can make in the life of a child with KTS. It was $1006.36 to be exact. If you missed donating, you can go to the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation at http://birthmark.org and click on the donation box. Just put in the donation is for the Brian C Weber Memorial Travel Fund. These wonderful people help children and adults with all types of vascular birthmarks, and they very generously administer this fund at no charge so all money donated goes to help children.
I know you’re wondering – the Grand Prize Winner is Nancy-Coe Hall. Her projects raised the most money and she got the $100 gift certificate and a few other little goodies. The other winners are Bernie Crompton for children’s clothes, Robin Rosenfeld for toys, Joyce Richardson for socks, Joyce Walter for ponchos, Ruth Bekich for Scarves, and Barb Wiesenmayer for Shawls. We had a number of people comment on the garments, including several who wanted to buy them! We will definitely do this again, so keep your needles, hooks, and stitches going.
We do have lots of great new yarn in, but we also have lots of old yarn hanging around, so we’re going to have our holiday sale early this year. We’ve heard you want to get your ideas and start your projects earlier. We have great ideas for quick and easy gifts you can make you everyone, and some you can buy for your knitting, crocheting, and needlepoint friends. The GREAT GIFT SALE starts on November 16th and runs through December 12th. We’ll have great prices on discontinued yarns as well as some we over-bought. We’ll have lots of ideas for you along with some free patterns and many ideas for new projects. We’ll also have good deals on magazines, books, and patterns. This is not a sale to be missed!
All of you needlepointers are included in the sale as well. We’ll have great prices on painted canvas and threads to go with them, so mark your calendar. You won’t want to miss this one, either.
Sit & Stitch is the 13th this month so make your reservations by the 11th.
Keep your needles moving!
