Yarn, Crafts & Everything in Between. Joelle Hoverson, owner of Purl SoHo, worked as a senior style editor at Martha Stewart Living and a freelance stylist and is the author of three wonderful craft books: Last-Minute Knitted Gifts; More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts; and Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts. Each may be purchased in soft cover for under $20. Yarn kits. Crochet hooks. Precut fabrics. Patterns. Where are all these craft supplies found? A pleasant yarn shop called Purl SoHo, located in…you guessed it: SoHo, New York. From the outside looking in, the simple exterior design makes way for the rows and rows of colorful 100% high quality cotton fabrics that come into view after entering the store. From neon green to midnight black, almost every color of the rainbow is available to purchase in yarn. For customers that prefer to purchase a variety, “spectrum bundles” are available that contain a fat quarter (18” by 24”) of twelve cotton fabrics.
In addition to crafts, project bags, yarn, and embroidery, Purl SoHo now offers classes that cater to any skill level. Customers that attend can expect to learn weaving basics, needlepoint basics, finishing techniques and much more. The latest class schedules are updated frequently and can be found on PurlSoHo.com
