I had the opportunity over the summer to visit a few yarn shops....one in Montgomery County, one in Philadelphia and 2 in NYC and I will reiterate that Conversational Threads is hands down THE BEST yarn shop I have ever had the pleasure of calling "my only yarn store"! Thank you for all you do...for me...for knitting....and for the community!
Your Local Yarn Shop
Located in the center of the charming borough of Emmaus, PA, since 2009, a straight 2 miles off the Lehigh Street (Exit 57) of Interstate 78, Conversational Threads is a yarn and fiber shop unlike any other. Our cozy home-like shop is filled with your favorite basics such as Cascade 220 as well as an abundant supply of gorgeous yarns from independent dyers such as The Neighborhood Fiber Co., Mrs. Crosby Plays and Hedgehog Fibres, just to name a few.
All of our over 100 premier brands of the finest all-natural yarns have been carefully selected to be of the highest quality and are offered at excellent prices. Let the members of our friendly and knowledgeable staff help you to choose your next project, whether you are a beginner or a bit more advanced, and know that they are happy to provide you with assistance in finding yarn substitutions or navigating through the maze that is Ravelry. If, however, you wish to browse undisturbed, you can be assured that you will feel free to do so.
Work On Your Projects Comfortably
Our shop boasts a large shopping area of 2000 square feet, offering a home-like atmosphere where you can shop with ease. Our comfortable seating areas, scattered throughout the shop, provide plenty of room for you to comfortably work on your projects. If you need assistance with your work or have questions about our products, feel free to speak with one of our friendly staff members.
At Conversational Threads, help with your project, regardless of where you purchased the supplies, or even if it has been resurrected from the attic after spending years there, is always free. We are happy also to offer our customers free ball-winding, even if you did not purchase the yarn at our shop.
