Welcome to Wool, Warp and Wheel. Our Fiber Arts Studio is currently a "brick and mortar" shop. We believe that fiber arts should be passed "hand-to-hand" and that requires personal contact. Our shop has become a meeting place of our fiber community. Bear With Book On KnittingAs a resource to that community, we offer many beautiful yarns; spinning supplies and fiber; weaving supplies and materials; notions; knitting needles and crochet hooks, kits; books; patterns and MUCH more! Visit our Products pages to see all that we offer!

A lot has happened since we first opened the doors. As we have been faithful to take care of those who God has brought into the shop, he has blessed us. We have been able to expand our inventory far beyond what we envisioned, focusing on premium products and equipment. Nine years ago we didn't know how we would ever fill the space. Today, we're working harder than ever to put even more in the shop without it becoming too crowded.

In an effort to improve our shop, we've become part of The National Needle Art Association (TNNA). The association has put us in direct contact with manufacturers and importers of products, provided us educational opportunities to help us improve our business skills, and given us the opportunity to share with other shop owners our customer focused approach to the fiber arts. It has provided us the opportunity to make an impact on the industry.

Most amazing is the core group of customers who have become a part of our adventure. It is truly rewarding to see them become friends "outside" of the shop. It has also been a joy to watch them become proficient fiber artists. Many have exceeded their expectations, and are now able to create things they never thought possible.

The shop has become more than just a place to buy yarn. It's a place where kindred spirits meet. Its true colors are not in the yarn, but in the people who gather there. Its warmth comes not from the hearth, but from the hearts of those who frequent it. The atmosphere of welcome comes from the blessing of God.

Make it a "Hand-Made" Holiday
Just because the economy isn't in the tank is no reason to put your finances there. This year shun the commercialism and return to a good old fashioned Christmas. Make it a hand-made holiday. Meet with your family and tell them there must be creative-only "hand-made" gifts under the tree. Set a spending limit and get those creative juices flowing. Hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, headbands, shawls, socks (for those who knit fast), felted bags, needle felted items, the list of possible projects goes on. And, don't forget the baked goods (one of my favorites).

This is a fantastic opportunity to get everyone involved. It is a chance to rediscover family time and establish new traditions. And who knows, maybe the money you save can be put toward that credit card balance or perhaps a family vacation. It is also a great time to teach your children that the true value of a gift has nothing to do with the cost, and everything to do with the thought and time of the one who personally made it for them.

And, as is our custom, you can expect our workshops and help to be available to you so those projects can be completed on time. We have lots of ideas, patterns, and materials to help you along the way. Make this the best holiday season ever-make it a "Hand-Made" holiday this year!
