    Love WEBS and follow over Ravelry and Facebook. I practically wake up to Steve’s deal of the days and read all the customer comments to expand my knowledge of the vast fiber choices and helpful hints offered on webs group pages. Happy 40th and here’s to 40 more!

  • Goldengourd

    Although I’m relatively new at using Raverly groups and posts, really finding it a fav! And Im another that fills a cart, dreaming and wishing funds matched.

  • marybeth kress

    I may not fall off the wagon often, but when I do, my cart usually points to Webs!

  • Karen

    WEBS is my favorite site to purchase yarns. I check the website several times a week and add to my cart on a regular basis. I have always been 100%satisfied with my purchases! Sometimes I’m so satisfied that I now have a stockpile of different yarns. It is always a major decision as one project is completed, what to work on next. Currently I have a lot in my cart and am itchy to purchase!!!

  • Robin Barnett

    I like seeing the specials on Facebook so that is the way I interact most often. Facebook to the website.

  • Teresa

    Can’t wait every year for this sale. Makes my stash large so I can go to shows and focus on impulse buys! Love Pintrest ideas.

  • curlytoot

    I love Ravelry, but Pinterest is also pretty cool its great for food ideas too :)
    My fav way to browse webs is through the sales links and also Steve’s deal of the day on twitter :D got some great bargains that way!

  • Marianne Miles

    I was blest to have been born in Northampton, Massachusetts, present home of the amazing Webs warehouse but I remember way back when I visited the shop on Boltwood Walk in Amherst. I am currently living in Upstate New York but because most of my family is still in Western Mass. (including my ninety-one year-old mother who still knits every day) I go back to visit regularly. So, I am able to fill an actual, real shopping cart as I stroll the warehouse aisles!! The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Thanks you guys!!

  • DK

    Favorite way to stay in touch with Web’s is through Ravelry and the Web’s group. I also enjoy browsing and reading on the Web’s website.

  • conpol

    Love Facebook. Also web page, also ravely….all great way to dream of endless yarn love!!!

  • Kathy West

    My favorite way to interact is with Facebook, I also love getting your Webs emails, then I head over to your site and window shop. So many choices of yarn, just sends me into daydreams of what I could make!

  • Louise

    love this company!

  • Dianne

    I spend a good deal of time on Ravelry along with various knitting podcasts on Itunes. Have been a customer of Webs for more years than I want to acknowledge, way back when the elder Elkins would send yarn samples in the mail. Webs has always been my first choice when I am beginning a new project. Every May , my friends and I drive the 2 hours for their annual tent sale.

  • Francese

    Hello. Have viewed the Feb 11 Tweeter. Not sure how to send the Tweet message.Nothing works for sm Project I am working on is beaded beanie with Rosette flower. Materials bought at Webs. Love that yarn shop

  • Tammy_4

    Ravelry for the win! I check in there daily.

    I love Webs; it’s my go-to site whenever I need new yarn. I follow Webs on facebook and check the blog and Ravelry group now and then, too.

  • Claudia

    I love to use facebook to look at all the information about knitting in WEBS and other networks.

  • Margaret Hulbert Clark

    Just love Cascade 220 superwash. Have some left after making my favorite afghan.

  • Gisela Riemer Gardner

    I bought 5 Skeins Southwick Valley Yarns, 52% Pima Cotton, 48% Bamboo Viscose for a Tahki Stacy Charles pattern: Corn Silk Shell, designed by Rosemary Drysdale. It looks very pretty and the yarn is so soft!

  • darlene

    two of my must have open tabs- ravelry and webs. webs is where my stash lives!

  • Alison Routley

    I first saw Webs pop up as a side ad on Facebook and am I glad it came up! I love the inspiration, Steve’s Deal of the Day and looking at all the luscious yarns and dreaming of what I could make with them.

  • Sharon

    Always lot of yarn to wish for

  • sylvie

    I like Ravelry and Facebook. I save photos and patterns on my phone. It gives me many moments of enjoyment to look at the photos at random times of the day.

  • Lynda Gallagher

    I can’t really remember how I heard of Webs but I’m sure glad I did. They have the most amazing selection of years and fabulous prices. Thanks Webs

  • Cristy Pressley Russell

    As a newbie to knitting I love webs colors and can’t wait to place my first order n

  • Debby

    I saw it about Year ago on the net while looking for patterns and yarn. I was drooling over everything.

  • Monday knitter

    I live in a nearby town to Northampton and for years and years I had heard about a knitting store named Webs but had never visited it. I heard about the annual sale and thought “Why not!” and from then on I can’t stay away. Beautiful yarns to buy and feel!!!!

  • Robin Crittenden

    I found your store from an ad on a search page. You have beautiful stuff

    I first found WEBS at Stitches West quite a few years ago now. I was amazed at the variety and quality of yarn on offer and always look forward to seeing them there.

  • Sarah Severns

    I discovered Webs when I began weaving. My lovely mentor whipped out a color card and said “pick, call and weave.” It’s been love ever since, My beautiful loom, a surprise gift from my husband came form Webs. Bless Barbara for coaching me how to assemble a countermarche loom over the phone!

  • mharrig2

    I first heard of webs when I saw the sign on I91 through Northampton while visiting family in western MA. We live in mid-Altlantic states but it almost feels like a local yarn shop. (Not quite– it is hard to feel the yarn through the internet!)

  • cheryl

    <3 WEBS …troll the website often usually linked from ravelry, and am actually not too far away that I have been able to get there for classes and YARN!

  • Christine Sloat

    I first heard of Webs on one of the podcasts I listen to. It is SO much a favorite of mine that I always have a tab open to Webs on my browser, even at work (shhh!). I “stalk” Webs for yarn, and when I find something irresistable I search Ravelry for a pattern to use it with!!

  • JemezMama

    Love WEBS.

  • Susan Schelkun

    I was looking for baby blanket yarn and than goodness for GOOGLE. It brought me right to WEBS. Now my knitting group all shop on the site.

    My granddaughter let me know about yr site. Wonderful wonderful wonderful selections. I am 70yrs old and still teaching grandchildren to knit and crochet.

  • Carol

    Honestly don’t remember how I learned about WEBS, but am glad that I did!

  • Janis Graham

    Love a number of the yarns I’m seeing – it’s a dilemma – so many pretty yarns, so little time to knit …

  • Shari Rogers Mendonca

    Yippeeeee! I am so excited to be one of the winners! My hubby was out of town for valentines day, so this totally warmed my heart! Thank you, WEBS.

  • Heather Nyack

    I love the wide variety of yarns and needles available through Webs. I also love their customer service! I have pinned your awesome yarn love heart on my board.

  • hART Sense Design

    Just re-pinned the ‘WEBS loves you’ pin on my Webs & Webbing Pinterest board.
    I love WEBS because it makes weaving our “tangled webs’ so much easier with a great selection of yarn at affordable prices.

  • KathleenofCT
