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.
It’s Spring! We have warm temperatures, bright green leaves on all the plants and trees, flowers everywhere, spring thunderstorms, and lots of ideas for summer projects. Speaking of spring events, if April showers bring May flowers, do you know what May flowers bring? The answer is at the bottom.
IMPORTANT REMINDER! For all of you who joined our Spring Knit Along, our party is June 2 at 1:00 pm. We’ll have the usual great food, gifts, goodies, and a special drawing. These are always the best parties of the year so you don’t want to miss it.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! Since so many of you finished our Spring Knit Along early, we’re having a new one for the summer. This is our TAKE ALONG KNIT ALONG. We’ll be choosing projects that are easy to take with you on vacation, to the kid’s ball games, or just outside to the lounge chair by the iced tea pitcher. This is a great time to get a jump on your holiday projects, and as always, for our Knit Along, you can knit or crochet. You’ll need to buy 3 balls of yarn or at least 400 yards to make the project of your choice. This KAL starts June 1, so you’ll need to choose your project, buy your yarn and sign up by then. There’s no charge to join the KAL. Our KAL Party will be September 8 from 1.00 – 4.00 pm. There will be door prize drawings and gifts for everyone who participates and plenty of food and fun.
We do have some new yarn to tempt you. Our latest Wonderland Yarns Cheshire Cat Limited Edition Pack of the Month is my favorite so far. It’s called “Puddles, Mud, & Flower Buds” and that describes it perfectly. Shades of aqua, purple, spring green and grey shout SPRING!
Universal Yarns has sent us two very spring colors of Bamboo Pop – Turquoise and Sand. They go beautifully with the other colors that came in a month ago. We have all the shades of spring as well as jewel tones and springy speckles. You’ll just have to come in to see them.
This is the big month – it’s my birthday on the 22nd! We are going to celebrate with some sales. I will put one of my favorite yarns on sale each day that week – the 20th through the 25th. Birthdays call for surprises so I won’t tell you which yarn is on sale which day, but they will be GOOD sales. You’ll have to come in and see. We will be having fun all week just like we always do.
This month’s Sit & Stitch is the 17th, so be sure to sign up by Wednesday the 15th.
The answer to what do May flowers bring is Pilgrims! You can groan all you like but keep your needles moving!
