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 all feel like we’ve finally recovered from our great birthday bash. We had a great time – and a little too much cake – but that’s what birthdays are all about. We thank all of you who celebrated with us and helped clear out old stock so we can bring in new. Things are starting to open up in our industry with more of our suppliers opening to fill orders and ship our goodies out to us. We have yarn, needles, accessories, and needlepoint supplies getting ready to come our way in the next few weeks. I can’t wait – it’s been so long since I placed some of the orders that I don’t exactly remember what I got. My notes on some of the new yarns are a bit cryptic so I must have loved them when I saw them.
We are continuing to comply with the “masks for everyone” orders, so please bring your face coverings when you come in. We’re also sanitizing everything after every customer, so we can all stay as safe as possible. We haven’t heard of anyone becoming sick after being in the store, so we feel like it’s working. We’re still happy to provide you with mail order or curb service if you like, and if you have a question or problem, we’ll do our best to answer it over the phone.
Our classes are working well with dividing students between our two tables so everyone is socially distancing. We had requests for a dedicated sock class and that went very well, also. The latest request is for a Wearable Art class so we will be starting that the week of August 17th. We’re going to offer this class on Thursday afternoon and Saturday morning to run for 5 weeks. You can choose either day. If too many people want to sign up, we can offer it on another day as well. What, you may ask, is Wearable Art? It’s really the adult form of embellishing your clothes. Instead of crayons or markers, we’ll be using needle and threads. You don’t have to know how to sew or embroider – that’s what this class is all about. It’s easy and fun and you don’t have to be creative or able to design anything or follow a pattern. You’ll need a garment, and we recommend a light weight woven fabric such as in a denim shirt or a fabric hat that’s not lined. Everything else including the booklet will be in your kit. We’ll have it priced out shortly. You need to sign up soon as class space is limited. To see what’s involved, come in and look at some of my favorite clothes.
It’s time to mark your calendar for the 2020 Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl. The dates for this year are September 25, 26, and 27. We’re doing it differently because of the pandemic situation. We’ll be asking you to crawl virtually from the comfort of your own home. You can still come in and see us if you like. You’ll find all the details on charlotteareayarncrawl.com. It will be different but we’ll still have fun!
The latest news from Northcross Shopping Center is that we have a Halloween store open again if you need a more interesting mask. That’s only 89 days from now. More importantly, Christmas is just 144 days away. Have you started your gifts yet? Just think about it (it’s never too early so you won’t be up nights the week before) and keep your needles moving!
