I wanted to write a review when I saw that only one person had done so and had what sounded like a bad experience. I've been a frequent customer of the Yarn Barn for many years and it's one of my favorite stores. The salespeople have always been helpful and knowledgeable and willing to answer my many questions with patience and kindness. I've taken many classes as well and the teachers have all been great. My sister who lives in Chicago always insists we spend a good part of an afternoon at the Yarn Barn whenever she comes to visit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this store to anyone and consider it a downtown treasure.
Four years ago, Steve and his crew changed our boring backyard into a beautiful oasis with a fabulous swimming pool and spa. His knowledge and experience helped us through the process, offering suggestions and improvements to our original idea that made the finished product even better than we had imagined. Since then, he's been always available to answer questions to this first-time pool owner, with lots of patience and humor. I would highly recommend Stranger Creek Pools (and have many times) to anyone interested in pool ownership.
