I was in Gastonia a couple of weeks ago with my husband on a business trip . One of my favorite things to do is visit yarn shops in different towns. I'm from Shelbyvill
e Tennessee and I was welcomed a...nd loved looking at all the items and especially the wonderful yarn selection. I purchased 3 skeins of yarn and the lady gave me a copy of a pattern. I look forward to returning on our next trip!!! Thanks so much!

Joy at Things Remembered
in Gastonia NC is an artist! Drove 4 hours today to pick these up. Joy helped me pick out mats of suede or linen plus frames to compliment these antique samplers. She hand sti...tched the edges of the samplers to the mats and used spacers and acid free materials and VIOLA!!! Still trying to date my Margaret Valentine Scottish sampler and have included a shot of the whole piece plus a close up. The frame is original and hand carved and gilded. There are a couple of holes around the ship that were glaring due to the white paper underneath . Joy made the holes disappear by placing the sampler on a linen mat the same color. Can't seem to copy the photos over but will keep trying. Wonderful Job Joy!!!
This is such a fun shop. I went in w/a friend from out of town who was looking for some special yarn. Joy and Lisa were so helpful and we couldn't wait to come back. They have a sit and knit day on Th...ursday all day and evening!We
came back 2 days later .Both of us had a blast and felt like we'd known our new friends forever!
This is the one and only yarn shop in Gaston Co. and it is wonderful.
The owner Joy is a wonderful person who is helpful, knowledgea ble and if she doesn't have the answer, she knows who does. She ha...s excellent classes, instructor s, and also Big names who come for workshops. Yeah!
I love shopping and spending time with fellow crafters at Things Remembered
. The owner Joy is a true joy to be around. I love the yarn selections and the samples of patterns that are in the store. I a...lso love the great pattern recommenda tions to broaden my horizons on my knitting adventure!
loved this shop! I'm so glad I decided to stop by. I didn't catch the name of the lady who helped me, but she was wonderful and navigated me exactly where I needed to be in the shop and off...ered all kinds of helpful advice. Excellent selection, and just downright adorable shop. Clean, organized, bright and cheery. If I'm ever back in the area, I will be returning!
I was so glad to find this great shop here in Gastonia. Stopped in today with my 13 year old daughter and could not have had a better experience
. The owner greeted us warmly, showed us around, and t...aught us several things in the process (we're newbies to knitting). Can't wait to start some new projects now!

The people are very friendly. The store has a nice selection of yarn. Very fun stop on our yarn crawl.
