We have relocated! Our new address is 6514 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle WA 98115. Our facade is still under construction (if you can't find us, the windows might still say "Animal Talk"), but we are open limited hours during the renovation.
We are a yarn and fiber arts store and school located in Seattle, WA. We've been supplying, teaching and supporting fiber artists and enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest and beyond since 1974. We have a super knowledgeable staff and offer a comfortable environment to plan, learn and gather resources for any project you can dream up. Visit us in our new location and see what's in store or shop online now.
