We spoke with Amanda Hsiao, owner of The Observatory Shop , who shared the following information with us.

Please describe your business:

The Observatory Shop, aka Observatory, is a lifestyle knitting shop, carrying yarn, tools and notions curated from small businesses from around the world.  We also offer a collection of unique gifts for the home, apparel and fine jewelry.  Our classes and special events bring our knitting community together to learn and socialize.  Come for the yarn, stay for the curated collection.  Everyone is welcome!

What is your favorite item(s) for Winter 2021:

It’s too hard to choose!  We are loving the yarns from Manos Del Uruguay alongside Nancy Kraskin’s rainbow sapphire spark necklaces.  We are also excited about our new Zoom classes with Pam Grushkin!

What are you looking forward to in 2021:

Mostly we are hoping to have our knitting community gather IRL!

Do you offer Online Shopping / Curbside Pickup / Delivery:

Yes to all of the above!  It is so important to us that everyone keeps knitting – especially during COVID.  For more information on ordering and delivery, please visit our website here.
