The Uptown Purl is an internet only store owned by Kim Stielper (that's me). The store started as a result of visiting craft store after craft store only to find the same knitting yarns and acccessories in store after store. My daughter got me interested in knitting about 2 years ago, shortly thereafter a friend got me completely hooked.
Our goal is to bring a wider variety of items to knitters, including more unique yarns and handcrafted knitting accessories. The whole family is hard at work either creating items for the store or working on inventory and getting things organized.
The company's base is in South Central Pennsylvania and is currently an internet only operation. In addition to this site you can also find items on our ebay store The Uptown Purl.
