HELLO AND WELCOME
It all began in 2016 when Susan took Blair to a wholesale show in Washington, D.C. On the way home from this show, Blair offered to become a partner. The day after making this offer, Blair was diagnosed with breast cancer. After being diagnosed, she began to rely more heavily on her community and friendships at the knitting shop.
Magpies (the birds) like to build and decorate their nests with lots of shiny objects. Susan and Blair also enjoy doing this, so they wanted to create a place that integrates both a sense of community and shiny, wonderful things.
We are a fun, full service yarn, needlepoint and gift shop located on the Historic Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, Virginia. Our staff is knowledgeable, helpful, and always a lot of fun!
