It has been over a year since Infinite Yarns moved from Main Street to its new location on Hempstead Turnpike. The small boutique store which specializes in everything yarn has done quite well in its transition.
“We were on Main Street for eight years before our move,” said storeowner, Anne Schneck. “But our customers seem to like our new location because of accessibility and the availability of parking spots.”
Schnek who also heads up the website, infiniteyarns.com and has a Facebook and Ravelry page, said a lot of her business is conducted online.
“We do a lot of online marketing, showing off a wide range of products, books and magazines and other accessories. We also have a list of classes and workshops that are held throughout the year.”
The store has an abundance of yarn selections in almost every type of brand, fiber and gauge. Some examples include Araucania, Bollicine and Debbie Bliss brands. There are many fibers to choose from like acrylic blends, bamboo, cashmere and microfiber.
There are plenty of classes and workshops held at Infinite Yarns from beginner to advanced that offer knitting and crochet lessons. Private lessons, specialty workshops and designer book signings are also available. Currently there is an Open Knit & Chat session on Friday nights from 7 to 9 p.m.
Infinite Yarns is located at 34 Hempstead Turnpike in Farmingdale. Store hours are Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 516-293-0010 for special class times or more information.
