LYS's and knitting

Today my DH and I went out in search of new (to us) yarn stores. First we (re)visited a store in Wyoming called Threadbender. The first time we were there we just weren't thrilled with the experience. After giving them a second chance we are still unimpressed with their customer service. The woman that worked their greeted me and asked if I needed help. She greeted another woman in the store the same way. She sort of said hi to my DH and never looked his way again. Now maybe they don't see too many male knitters but that is no excuse for ignoring a customer. It just kind of rubbed me the wrong way and it offended my DH. As far as yarn and the like, they were well stocked with a nice assortment of patterns, yarn, books, notions, spinning and weaving items. I'm not trying to sway anyone's opinion but we won't go back.

From Threadbender we ventured to Stitches Yarn & Needlework. It's a nice store, lots of needles, notions & patterns. Fairly good selection of yarn and half a store full of cross stitch supplies. The lady in the store spent a good deal of time with my DH looking for a felted coat pattern. Very nice and friendly. We would go back if we were in the area.

Tonight I went to Prayer Shawl Ministry at my church, Ridge Point Community, in Holland. It's nice to meet with other knitters and work together for such a good cause. We talked about branching out to other types of knitted articles. Our church does mission work in Romania and they visit a cancer hospital for children. I would like to knit hats and lap blankets for them. Prayer Shawls are wonderful but I feel like there is so much more that could be done. Maybe I should just concentrate on finishing what I'm working on.

Where in Wyoming were you? I live in southern Wyoming and haven't been to Threadbender. Is Stitches Yarn & Needlework also in Wyoming?

I also wasn't impressed by the service at Threadbender. I went in for a specific yarn which they didn't have, and when the lady knew I wasn't going to spend a pile of money that day she promptly ignored me. Why do they think we can spend a lot every time we visit?
