Nine Rubies Knitting
Mother-daughter team Saloni and Sudha started Nine Rubies Knitting to provide crafty customers with high-quality knitting supplies and patterns. The shop supplies knitters with everything they need to complete a project from beginning to end. Customers can pick out a pattern for a poncho, a bag, or even a baby toy, then browse the shop's selection of needles, crochet hooks, and looms. Once they have all their tools, crafters can choose their yarn from a huge selection that features more than 20 brands. But if their skills aren't quite yet up to par, customers can sign up for a basic knitting, crocheting, or weaving class offered in-store. More advanced students can opt for a class such as the custom fit workshop, where they'll learn how to create their own clothing patterns.
