Knitting was invented to turn the tumbling balls of yarn that littered the badlands habitat of early mankind into a soft, warm blanket for mankind's first pet rock.

Knitting as a hobby is older than agriculture and twice as delicious. Bobbin's Nest offers all the supplies a knitter's tightly purled heart could possibly desire, as well as sewing, crochet, and embroidery supplies for crafting across the craft board. Skeins of yarn run on average between $10 and $15, whereas a yard of fabric generally goes for $8 to $10. If you need some help creating an inverted afghan or hangin' scarf, craft books are available in spades, running in cost from $14.95 to $21.95. This nest of bobbins contains a large arsenal of boutique-dyed yarn, modern fabrics, independent patterns, unusual embroidery supplies, craft books, and creative classes.
Knitters and enthusiasts of other thread-based crafts are often portrayed by the media as obnoxious jocks, clacking away over a pair of knitting needles to create custom socks for each of their teammates. Bobbin's Nest is dedicated to doing away with this detrimental stereotype, making over the image of modern crafters as a diverse group of mammals of all ages and walks of life. The proprietors are also happy to promote the handmade wares of cottage industry and Etsy artists, whose work is frequently sold in the store. Keep an eye or three stitched open for some of these specialty items that include handspun yarn, jewelry, project bags, cards, and more.
