  • Fall Has Arrived!

    How do we know?  Once again the sales reps are making appointments and showing up with their "Spring/Summer" yarn offerings.  Meanwhile, we at Personal Threads are in the middle of our current project classes.  Meredith's "Building Blocks Blanket" has had tremendous interest.  It's a fun and lovely project.  Also, her "Beginning Knitting"continues to be a hit, as is her "Yipes Stripes" color-work cowl.  Amanda has the "Modern Granny Square Afghan" class in progress.  Her efforts to promote and expand interest in crochet are showing great results and is improving an area of the needle-arts in which I feel we have been a little lacking.   Rounding out our classes for the remainder of the year are Hayley's "Felted Clogs," her "Continental Knitting," and "Stranded Knitting 201" sessions.  Summer completes the list with another of her favorite series, this one being "The Noro Blanket."  We will finish these before the end of the year.

    Even this week we have received new yarns into the store.  Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter is a yarn we have admired for awhile and are now pleased to offer.  Noro's Kureyon Air is another, as is the Freia Fine Handpaints.  We have introduced Bonnie Bishoff Shawl Pins, along with Coco Knits Knitter's Keeps and accessories.  The Knitter's Keeps sold out immediately and have been reordered.

    We always try to keep Personal Threads stocked with the latest and greatest, so check our Ravelry  and Facebook pages to see what's new.  We've been told they are both outstanding postings.  Happy Knitting!

  • Ready for Fall (Yay!)

    The past few weeks have been very busy. Almost every day new and restock yarns have arrived in our preparation for Fall! The staff has been amazing in how they have dug in and worked extra hard to get it all done. In addition we have put together a new series of Fall classes that will be instructive, fun, and result in beautiful, usable knitting projects. Our new, personalized bags have been extremely well received. New yarns include: MadelineTosh new colors and Home (we are close to carrying the whole line in PTB!); fresh colors in Malabrigo; new Berroco, including Marmot and Ultra Alpaca (light and chunky!); Regia Denim; Knit One, Crochet Too’s Sebago; Rowan’s Fur and Thick ‘n’ Thin as well as Fine Art Aran and Chenille; Koigu Lace; new Noro–truly too many new yarns to mention here!! Also, we have gained another employee-Amanda-Come in and introduce yourself! The retreat in October now has almost 50 attendees. We will continue to work hard to be Omaha’s Premiere Yarn Shop! Your Personal Threads Boutique.

  • July!

    We ask for our yarn shipments to be sent this month and are they coming. Our first of two deliveries of Madelinetosh has arrived and Tosh DK is new. Plymouth came Wednesday, Findley DK (a new addition to our Juniper Moon collection) is in stock. Sebago, from K1C2 is wonderful. Zealana yarns sent Filigree and Diagonal Mitt Kits for those who want to try a new luxury yarn. Llambrosia from Frog Tree, another new yarn, both for us and them. Lots of new needlepoint canvases. Trendsetters  Autumn Wind Scarf Kits - although the bad news is that they are almost all sold since last week. Lots more yarn deliveries to come, there will be tons of choices this Fall. We are working hard to continue to be Omaha's "Personal Yarn Store".  We look forward to seeing you in the store and online. Joe

  • Personal Yarn Store Experience

    Personal Threads Boutique has been working hard over the past two years to make your "Personal Yarn Store" experience better than ever.  Not only do we sell yarn, but also offer group knitting and crochet classes every week.  In addition, private knitting and crochet lessons are available by appointment.

    You are visiting our new website, we hope you like what's been done with it.  Work is continuing on the site and it will only improve with time.  Yarn and fabric are the two main reasons you come to our store and as new yarns are received we will roll them out for you to see.

    We have plans for our own style of YouTube segments.  Not only will they have the usual instructional videos, but there are plans to have some unique Personal Threads Boutique presentations.  Hopefully you have had the opportunity to view our first video. If not, visit our YouTube Channel.

    The support you have given our yarn store over the past 21+ years is greatly appreciated.  We plan to continue offering unmatched fiber selection to you, our customers, and soon some very unique new offerings!
