Idea is where the heart is!

About Us

We are a family owned business located in La Grange, IL. We carry a wide variety of yarns and beads, as well as needlepoint supplies and all the tools you need to get started. We specialize in helping you develop your ideas into beautiful finished objects and providing one-on-one help along the way. 

Idea is a welcoming environment with plenty of places to sit and knit and share your latest project. We also pride ourselves on our charity knitting program and the work our wonderful customers do to better the community.  

Our staff is available at any time to help you bring your projects to life!  Chandra loves the opportunity to play with color and textures in all media and she is the resident beading and jewelry expert. Nancy is a masterful knitter who can teach you any technique. Ruth is the grandma of the store, and an avid crocheter. She also helps us put together all of our charity afghans. Aria is the granddaughter who stops by when she is in town to help out and visit with all of Idea's wonderful customers! Come in and be inspired!
