Get to know Idea Studio

1. What is your favorite part of the Chicago Yarn Crawl? 

Over the last ten years, we have looked forward to the Chicago Yarn Crawl as it gives us an opportunity to meet a larger community of like-minded knitters and crocheters. It is an awesome community that has proved over and over that helping and supporting the ideas of others is a rewarding experience.  

2. How long have you been in business and how did you get started?

Idea Studio Needle Arts has been in business for 16 years this year! We are a family owned business, that until recently has had three generations working to excite local artists to create with fibers! Unfortunately, we lost our vibrant 94 year old matriarch this year, but are continuing on to keep her vision going.

3. What makes your shop unique?

We are one of the few shops left that have needlepoint services that design, hand paint and finish canvases on a as-wanted basis as well.  And of course everything is better with beads,  so we carry a nice selection of beads to make jewelry or to put into a knit or crochet project.

4. What is your favorite part of being an LYS owner? 

We love seeing the vision that someone has about their next project, and strive to help them succeed. IDEA stands for Inspiration, Design, Expertise, and Artistry and we strive to provide all of those attributes to our customers. We began this shop with the idea of doing all the fun stuff. That way, coming to work everyday is a joy!
