What a wonderful selection of yarn the carry for knitting, unique bottoms for sewing and knitting projects. Great yarn for tapestry. Lots of knitting needles. And for the cross stitching people, wonderful patterns and kits to purchase. Hard not to walk out without buying anything. Look for the big red button on the sign of the store and you are there.

Only a 10-min walk from the Inner Harbour, this yarn store has a nice selection of popular yarn such as Malabrigo, Araucania and Cascade. I bought some Filatura di Crosa while I was there. As their name suggests, they also have a large variety of buttons.

Always enjoy time in this store when visiting Victoria. Love the cross-stitich kits and supplies, always look at all the incredible buttons (need to plan a project requiring wonderful buttons before my next visit) and admire the huge selection of knitting supplies and wools! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Wish I lived closer!

What a beautiful shop filled with every colour and texture of yarn. Haven't knit or done needlepoint in years, but inspired to start a new project just visiting this beautiful place. Reminded me of my fav yarn shop in Japan. Great selection of bamboo needles. If you like needlework, this is the shop for you! Bonus: this crowded shop has a front and back entrance, so enter from Trounce Alley or View St.

I really enjoyed visiting Button & Needlework Boutique. They have lovely yarn, high quality yarns for knitting and I thougt the prices were comparable, if not slightly better than, to what is available in the states. She has a wonderful selection of cross stitch charts -- I could have spent an hour or two going through them all, but the husband only has so much patience. Luckily, the shop has a "husband" chair. I purchased a little cross stitch kit and a charted design from a B.C.-based design company -- I really respect that this shop is representing and supporting its local artists and small businesses. I recommend that you visit -- it is in the heart of the tourist area in doiwntown Victoria and very easy to get to. I also noticed another knitting shop called Bee Hive, it is on Douglas heading north. Did not get a chance to stop, but from the drive-bys, it appears well-stocked with yarns.
