The staff at Amazing Threads shares its enthusiasm for knitting by stocking high-end supplies and leading four levels of how-to classes. With a 2,400-square-foot studio, the shop boasts one of the largest yarn selections in the Midwest: skeins from Rowan and SMC Select are among the offerings, along with a deep selection of hand-dyed fibers from lines such as Arataunia and Three Irish Girls. This armory of yarn is complemented by buttons, bags, and needles from Skacel Collection, Plymouth Yarn Company, Kertzer, and other top brands. Small-group classes take place in Amazing Threads’ 24’x24’ classroom, where students learn to knit and crochet scarves, mittens, and covers for their blacksmith anvils.
