  • New and Special Yarns

    The new fall yarns have been continuing to arrive in droves since TNNA, and nothing received has disappointed us. We have ordered some great yarns!

    We continue to stock the very best from Madelinetosh. Along with ASAP, Dandelion, Home, Pashmina, Tosh DK, and Tosh Merino Light, we've recently added Tosh Sock, Tosh Vintage, and Twist Light (a nylon blend for socks!) to our lineup. They just seem to go out the door as fast as we get them in!

    We've also received a lot of new Koigu colors recently. If you've never had the chance to see our Koigu wall, we have over 400 Koigu selections to choose from. Everyone is ooh-ing and aah-ing over the new colors! Koigu is something special, indeed.

    Malabrigo has been restocked, and our plan to have plenty on hand for fall is taking a hit; knitters are buying it daily. We're going to have to reorder sooner than we planned!

    Our fall Rowan order is set to arrive soon--stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates. We're expecting color additions to some of our existing Rowan yarns, as well as some brand-new yarns to grace our shelves. We value our "AT" store status with Rowan; it's another reason we are Omaha's premier yarn shop.

    We will continue to post new arrivals and inspiring projects on our Facebook page. If you're not already following us, what are you waiting for?

    We could go on and on about all our wonderful yarn lines--Noro, Classic Elite, Sirdar, Dream in Color, Millamia, Plymouth, Juniper Moon Farm, Debbie Bliss, just to name a few--but you'll have to stop in and explore them for yourself. We carry these and other great brands so that we can truly deserve to be "Your Personal Yarn Store." As always, our staff will continue to make you their first priority.

  • Spring!

    I love spring! When we receive new yarns into the store, it seems like Personal Threads is always copying Nature’s explosions of color. The new Madelinetosh, Tosh Sock, rivals the fresh spring blooms that are popping up daily, and it’s being picked over very quickly. More has been ordered, along with another new yarn from Madelinetosh (stay tuned for more info!). Rowan yarns continue to be in demand. Cotton Lustre is set to make a big splash alongside well-loved summer classics such as Handknit Cotton, All Seasons Cotton, and Cotton Glace. Meanwhile, the folks at Classic Elite have added Santorini to complement their Sanibel line. Sanibel is a tonal blend of viscose and cotton, and Santorini is a gorgeous, variegated version of the same base.

    Classes are going extremely well. The Personal Threads ladies (Amanda, Hayley, Meredith, and Summer) are all recognized as being extremely knowledgeable and talented, and they do a wonderful job of conducting our classes. As always, we strive to offer classes with an eye toward expanding our knitters’ skills. We’re very much looking forward to upcoming visits from our yarn reps, and going to TNNA in May. We will continue to offer only the very best and newest yarns, and earn our title of “Your Personal Yarn Store.”

  • Yarns Keep Coming In!

    New Madelinetosh – we’ve added Vintage to our existing lineup (a delightfully springy, superwash wool). We also received new colors of old favorites – Home, Dandelion, Tosh Merino Light and Pashmina. New Berroco – Mixer and Espresso (fun new warm weather yarns!) More colors of Cascade 220 Superwash. New Koigu Sparkle.  Noro’s brand-new  Kureopatora  is a worsted weight yarn with a thick & thin construction that will add a bit of rustic texture to your projects. Its gorgeous colors and wonderful versatility make it a great addition to our Noro family. It’s hard to list all the new things we’ve got coming in, so don’t forget to visit our Facebook page for the very latest yarns and projects at PTB!

    Our “Customer Appreciation Sale” was a great success – it’s so enjoyable to give back to customers who support us! Our Personal Threads employees had fun but were very tired by the end.

    Previously, I wrote that Personal Threads was selected by Vogue Knitting as their “Inspirational Yarn Shop” in the Holiday Edition. In addition, we were selected as “Best of Omaha” in our category for the year! As “Your Personal Yarn Store,” we will continue to give you the best of service and selection just as we’ve done for the past 22+ years. We thank you for your support, and we will do our best to live up to our name.
