La Casita Yarn Shop Cafe in Brooklyn



La Casita Yarn Shop Cafe in Brooklyn


Situated in the Cobble Hill area of Brooklyn, resides an adorable yarn shop named "La Casita Yarn Shop Cafe". Petite in size, however grand in character, this yarn shop stole my heart when I first found it when I had just arrived in New York City back in 2010.

As I entered the shop rather shyly, I was immediately taken by its friendliness and I couldn't help but feel being "home". I took at a seat at the bar, ordered a latte and and simply soaked in all the good energy that was floating around.

In the background, I could hear merengue music soflty playing, a knitter was happily working away in a comfortable couch, somebody behind the bar was preparing an order of empanadas and everything simply felt relaxed and comfortable.

Feeling embraced and welcomed by La Casita's wonderful community

La Casita is not only an adorable shop, it also has a loyal following and wonderful community. There is always cool stuff happening, classes, a fashion show, a trunk show, kids gathering and knitting/crocheting and groups gathering and knitting/crocheting.

I am so happy to report that this wonderful community has been very kind to me. They have embraced me and my design work, welcomed me and encouraged me to continue designing. And they showed their love and support during a trunkshow of my design work!
