Meet the owner

When Sharon Schuld opened Pudding Yarn in 2005 she had no idea that her concept for a knitting store was the equivalent of a candy store for hobbyists.

“I think the most pleasant surprise I had when opening the shop was that it brings in a really happy group of customers. This is their happy place — the hobby of knitting, its what they do as mental therapy,” explains Sharon. “There are very few antagonistic people that come into the shop because it is such a great place to be.”

While knitters stop into the store from all over Calgary to satiate their need for new yarns and patterns, Schuld shares that she doesn’t plan on expanding anytime soon. “We’re not looking to become a great big company. It is not what I am interested in because the nature of this business has to be handled one on one. Knitting takes time and so does customer service in this industry,” she says.

As the name implies, Pudding’s yarn selection looks like a dessert buffet in a rainbow of colours, shades and textures. The shop is beautifully designed, with yarn stacked from floor to ceiling. Given its reasonably priced classes and the fact it’s located a short walk from downtown, you’ll end up here more often than you think.
