Welcome to my store!
The Golden Fleece is a fiber institution in Santa Cruz, and I am but its latest humble custodian. I cater to knitters as well as crocheters, and I try to do my bit to keep the spinners and weavers happy as well. I suppose you could call me the “Tatting Headquarters of the South Bay”, since I don’t know of a store that has more by way of tatting supplies.
Space is at a premium since the store is small and there is no “in the back”, but I do my best to carry a varied assortment of yarn, needles, buttons, notions and other fun stuff! if you need something I don’t have, I will see if I can locate and/or order it for you.
So, that’s the stuff, but what about the craft?
Well, I do my best there too. You can come in for help any time, and the store is open seven days a week! Classes for knitting, crocheting, and tatting are available, and there is plenty of comfy couch seating for anyone to come in and hang out – no appointment or class needed.
That said, we have some scheduled hang out times: Tuesday is social knit night from 6pm to 9pm.
You are not banned from crocheting during social knit night by any means; I just scheduled a crochet specific thing on Mondays because crocheters seem to be a little under-represented in general, and I wanted to eke out a special space for them.
