#NeedleStoresoftheWorld: The Modern Skein

By: TNNA Editor

Welcome back to our little {needle store} corner of the world. For the February feature, we take you to The Modern Skein in Montgomery, TX.

Describe what The Modern Skein does best.
Knitting, crocheting and the fiber arts are no longer a hobby or craft of the past. The Modern Skein is here to show our customers that no matter their age, background or generation, they too can enjoy and access the finest, most up-to-date yarn, fiber, notions and accessories. Customers will notice that The Modern Skein is laid out differently than the average store, as the products are sorted by how they were created and sourced, as well as by type, weight and brand — each wall is a different type of fiber! The store’s team also seeks out up-and-coming indie artists in order to bring customers yarn and accessories that are exclusive to the area and are difficult to find online.

What makes The Modern Skein unique?
The Modern Skein founder Sharon Graff’s dream of owning a yarn shop came true as the storefront took shape and doors opened in March 2018. In addition to the store’s growing group of loyal customers (and sit-and-stitchers), one unique element that Sharon shared with us was:

I only carry hand dyed yarn in my shop, both local and from all over the world. All the products and accessories we keep are handmade, small batch, artisan, etc. The shop is very open and clean feeling, with the yarn as the art and inspiration of the space.

Share a fun fact about your store.
Sharon has never taken an official knitting lesson or class. Her grandmother taught her to cast on and the other basics… the rest she learned on her own from books!
