  • A Great Time of the Year!

    What is the first sign of Fall? Yarn company reps making appointments to show their Spring/Summer offerings.

    Personal Threads has been a very active place this fall. In spite of all the roadwork outside our doors, we've managed to stay very busy. Customers shopping for yarn, classes during the day and some evenings, have kept the PTB staff moving. Busy is a good thing and we owe it to you, our friends and patrons, in making us Omaha’s finest yarn shop. And speaking about Omaha’s finest yarn shop, we received two big accolades. One we can’t reveal just yet. The second is a national recognition. Vogue Knitting selected us as their “Inspirational Yarn Shop” for their Holiday Edition. Considering the total number of shops in the country, this is a huge honor. Again, Thank You for making us the store that we are! One last thing – Everyone checks our Facebook page to see which new yarns are coming into the shop. I would like to special mention a new yarn, Woolfolk. The brand currently consists of only two yarns – a fingering and a worsted weight. Knitters Review gave the yarn an extremely glowing report. Personal Threads is one of less than 40 shops in the world to sell this yarn. The designs by Olga Buraya-Kefelian are both striking and wearable. To all, have a wonderful holiday knitting season!

  • 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
