The philosophy behind Purl Soho, in business since 2002, is one of sharing, teaching and community, in the true spirit of craft. The fabric and yarn emporium offers a copious selection of hand-dyed natural fiber yarns and fabrics in a rainbow of colors and fabulous, unique prints, plus a generous collection of self-published patterns for everything from leg warmers and socks to mittens, potholders, and versatile knitted “bowls.” They also carry a wide variety of original kits to take home, complete with easy-to-follow instructions, many of which are designed by the owner’s favorite artists. Stop by the delightfully cozy store for a class, or stay at home and browse their blog Purl Bee for tips and ideas. Co-owners Joelle Hoverson, author of three best-selling craft and knitting books, and Page Norman have created a one-stop shopping experience where those new to knitting and crafting can ask questions without fear, and seasoned crafters can find inspiration.Show lessRead more
