Unbelievably Rude!! – All of the other negative reviews are right on the money. The salespeople are terrible, especially the manager who basically kicked me out of the store yesterday at 5:53 (they close at 6:00) because she "had things to do". I was shocked. I mean, what kind of business kicks out a paying customer, even if that customer shows up close to closing time. I will never shop here again.
Bitches East – The salespeople are rude and ignore their customers, and everything costs a fortune! Each time I go, I try to put these bad experiences past me, but it all comes flooding back immediately. This is why I have never bought anything there. No wonder they have such a terrible nickname...
Try Rita's Needlepoint on 79th! – The listing claims that they have a full range of needlepoints. However, they are clearly a knitting store and they have very little in the way of needlepoint. What they do have is really pretty unattractive. And the staff is strangely unfriendly. I travelled a little further the next day and got what I needed at Rita's on East 79th off of Lexington. The selection was vast, the people were lovely and the prices were better too!
Unfriendly & Unhelpful – The store does not have much of a selection, and the salespeople are unhelpfuland seem annoyed when I call with a question. Even a simple inquiry as to yarn availability leaves me feeling like I've just been an huge annoyance. No thanks! This is the closest knitshop to my home, but I prefer to travel the extra blocks to the Yarn Company located at 82nd & Broadway, where they are friendly, have an awesome selection and love to help people knit.
