  • 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!

  • New Yarns, New Classes!

    Every week we are receiving new yarns: Rowan, Koigu, Malabrigo, Mountain Colors, Noro, and many more (simply the best brands, of course!). The spring TNNA market is always anxiously anticipated, and this year was no exception.  Searching for new products and services is both exciting and stressful. We have to say, we're rather proud of the things we found this year.

    Our current set of classes includes Beginning Knitting, Fix-It 101, the Building Blocks afghan, and Crochet for Knitters. This year we're putting an emphasis on working with color combinations. We have Omaha's finest inventory, so we always have many yarn choices for our knitters' projects. Check out our Facebook page to stay abreast of the latest arrivals and be inspired by our customer show-and-tell posts.

    Last but not least, plans are in the works for this year's No Knots Knitters Retreat, at the scenic Lied Lodge in Nebraska City. The retreat will be held on October 10th & 11th. If you're interested in a knitting-packed weekend amidst beautiful foliage and fun knitters, please contact us for more information. Thanks always to our Personal Threads knitters for making us Omaha's Finest Yarn Shop.

  • 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.
