fibre space™ is owned and operated by Danielle Romanetti, who can be found most days chasing her tiny human around the shop with an iced mocha in hand or in her office with the shop Italian Greyhounds – Nemo and Kermit.
“My shop is really an extension of my original business – Knit-a-Gogo, Inc., which I opened in October of 2006 to offer knitting classes in the DC metro area. Initially, I taught beginner and intermediate classes at coffee shops, bakeries and even public libraries in and around Washington, DC. Utilizing these spaces required a solid relationship with the businesses that hosted us and has led to the collaborative philosophy that fibre space™ now maintains. As my customers grew in number, so did the community of knitters and crocheters, as well as the number of classes being offered and my staff of instructors. Eventually, the Knit-a-Gogo community really needed a permanent home – a place where stitchers could meet outside of classes, buy quality supplies and and share with other stitchers. In 2009, this dream became a reality when Knit-a-Gogo became fibre space™ and opened its doors in historic Alexandria, VA. I am so excited to have finally put down permanent roots at our new building, 1319 Prince Street.”
We offer a 5% discount to military, teachers and students, with valid ID.
We also provide 10% off any yarn that is still in the box and unpacked and will frequently put new yarn out for this discount. In addition, our shop has a sale section that always has something new and exciting in it.
Bring your own bag or use our recycled bags
We strive to be as eco-friendly as possible and do not have disposable shopping bags. We do recycle the bags that our yarns arrive in and offer those for free. We are delighted to have reusable drawstring bags that may be purchased for $2 or are free if you spend $100 or more. Bring your bag back, and we will enter you into our monthly drawing for a 20% off shopping spree!
