| Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013, 9:02 p.m.

Kid Ewe Knot held its grand opening on Feb. 8. It is located in the former Carol's Needleworks at 429 Washington Ave., Suite 4, Bridgeville.

Owners Heather Metzger and Laurie Grahasm have been making changes to the shop, which was formerly owned for years by Carol Crowley, who retired at the end of 2012.

They have transformed the store into a light, open and inviting space. They painted and rearranged all of the fixtures and brought in comfortable chairs.

They also have introduced many yarn lines, trying to make a major focus on things “local.”

They began carrying Space Age Creations. an Upper St. Clair company that hand-dyes. Two other Pennsylvania companies they will carry are Kraemer Yarns and Plymouth Yarns.

With a focus on knitting, spinning, crocheting and weaving, they offer classes from newbie to advanced, from children's classes to adults. Projects for Girl Scouts are being planned, as well as a kids' summer craft camp.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Call 412-257-2557 or visit for more information.
