A wooly ride - A new Roch. yarn shop is all sewn up

I know many roving bands of free-style knitters (I'm looking at you, Courtney) have been forced to raid other cities since Kristen's Knits closed in Rochester earlier this year.Yarn

So the rise of a new specialty yarn shop will probably spur celebration among the needle and yarn crowd.

Check out the print version of my column where I tie up all the loose ends and unravel all of the details. Heh.


Rochester has a been a little less colorful for the large contingent of local knitters, since the Med City's only specialty yarn shop closed earlier this year.

Now two women are opening a new store to brighten things up again for Rochester yarn fans.

Deb Zipse and Catherine Aagenes, two avid knitters, are stitching up Hank & Purl's Creative Nook and Knittery in the River Center Plaza at 1615 N. Broadway.

That puts it just a few doors down from another destination for local fans of fiber arts, the Quilting Cupboard.


Jeff, you are THE best!!! I am now a proud subscriber to the print edition so I'll be keeping an eye on this (and other) news! THANKS!!!

When do you open?

I'd love to know when this store is slated to open - I drove by this weekend hoping to see a sign up but I didn't see anything.
