  • 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.

  • 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!
