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.
Warm days and cool nights, buds and blooms, Easter and allergies, – all sure signs of spring. If you’ve been in to the store lately, you know we’re up to our needles in new yarns – cotton, linens, and blends, light, bright colors, beautiful variegateds – more sure signs of spring. There’s almost too much to choose from. In the past six weeks we’ve had 23 different yarns in 137 different colors from 8 different companies – Classic Elite, Colinton, Great Adirondacks, Knit One Crochet Too, Loom, Plymouth, Skacel, and Universal have fabulous new yarns this year. That doesn’t include all the new spring colors of old yarns that have joined us. We’re waiting for three more spring orders that should be here in the next two weeks, and we will be absolutely full. You need to come in to see it all and look at the new books and patterns that support all of these wonderful new yarns.
We haven’t forgotten all of you needlepointers. We have wonderful new items from the Lee self-finishing collection. There are really fabulous Italian leather bags to pamper yourself. We also have a beautiful and practical large bag with pockets all over for your needle work, knitting (the knitters are going crazy and buying them!), or to use for a weekend trip. They come in red, navy, brown, and black and are under $100. The last item is a really cute leather tray that uses a 3 1/4” insert and comes in a variety of colors. It would be a great gift to hold change, orts, or any little thing. The stitching is covered by plastic making it totally useful. With all of these you can stitch the insert, cover it with fabric, knit something, or just leave it plain.
The biggest news this spring is our CLASSIC ELITE SPRING KNIT-A-LONG. Classic Elite is sponsoring it and providing a gift bag of items worth $100 to every store that participates. At the end of the Knit-a-Long we’ll draw the name of one lucky participant to win the bag. We’ll also give every participant a gift from the store, and we’ll have a party at the end so everyone can show off their finished items. To join you must use a pattern out of one of their 5 current spring books that takes at least 3 balls/skeins of any of their currently produced yarns that you bought specifically for the Knit-a-Long. You have to sign up in the store by April 30, 2014 with the name of the pattern and the yarn you’re using. You have to agree to allow Classic Elite to post a picture of your finished garment and your name online. And you must finish and bring your garment into the store before July 29, 2014 for us to photograph. The party will be August 3, 2014 for participants only. We’re having fun, so think about joining us.
Keep your needles moving!
