Nancy Takano retired from New York Life and as a result, she now devotes herself full time to her passion and business, "Designer Hand Knits." Since retirement, the shop has expanded twofold. We carry a large selection of quality designer novelty yarns, ribbons, patterns, and supplies. It is a veritable fiber arts studio. Come and get assistance selecting projects, patterns, yarns and knitting instructions.

Classes are offered that suit beginning knitters as well as advanced and future plans include trunk shows, celebrity instructors, and knitting retreats. The studio employs one full-time employee and several part-time elves; all dedicated to the fiber arts and Designer Hand Knits.
