Yarn organizer
Bought this as gift for friend that knits. Could not assemble it for side insert section (flimsy quality) would not line up with the base to get it to stay in. Have returned item and awaiting refund. Cost almost as much as product to send back, not sure will be reimbursed for the return shipping fee.

Great Gift
Gave it to my Granddaughter and she absolutely loves it. She is just a beginner and it works perfect for her.
Feb 21, 2016
my daughter in law loves it uses it over & over.
If you crochet or knit Or Work with yarn must have. No more tangled up yarn

We have been unable to assemble it, so it has turned out to be a wasted purchase. I had seen similar problems in the reviews, but only after I had placed my order. I felt confident my husband would be able to get it assembled, but even he couldn't do it. Too bad. Was really looking forward to using it!

Sturdy and Stable
I use this yarn organizer for storage and portability and it keeps my projects separated to aid in detangling. I did find the center compartment somewhat inadequate for my knitting needles and supplies. Maybe adding flat outside compartments for pattern storage and sectioned little compartments for stitch holders and other small supplies may prove useful.

won't buy this item again
after i got this organizer it was very hard to put together, bottom was out of shape so made it hard to put sides in slots, then putting the holders on place for the slots wasn't working at first. i wouldn't buy any more of these.

Wonderful gift
My best friend loves to knit and crochet. She also has 3 cats and a dog who love to play with the yarn. With this organizer she can knit or crochet to her heart's content, and the pets can't get to the yarn. She loves it!

awful assembly
To assembly the product was difficult and then it won't stay together. Do not buy this product.
Dec 19, 2015
it's doable
Product was hard to put together. Since the dividers are flimsy, it was very hard to put into the slats
Nov 22, 2015
Poorly made
Item was hard to assemble. Easily falls apart after assembly. Poor quality and poor design.
Nov 05, 2015
not the quality I thought
cheap plastic, hard to put together
Oct 13, 2015
don't bother with this item
Still can't get the thing put together so I am still unable to use this item.
Sep 04, 2015
I would not buy this again.
The concept to this is good that is if it was put together better. This product is very cheaply made. You have to put it together, just when you think you have this put together, you pick it up and it falls apart. Not easy to put together either, I did solve the problem of it falling apart by gluing the parts together, then it worked ok.
Apr 28, 2015
I purchased this but was very very unhappy with it. Very cheap and doesn't stay together well. Will not recommend it.

Great Yarn Organizer
I am purchasing a second organizer for a gift. I use this organizer for projects and it's the best I have ever used and it's easy to assemble. I can store 6 skeins of yarn in it and easily change my colors while crocheting any garment. I love it!
Jan 08, 2015
larger yarn sizes,holds standard size.
Size is perfect! Looking for tote that holds full size yarn
Jan 01, 2015
So Functional
For all those who are avid knitters, this is a wonderful organizer. It was fairly easy to put together and immediately put to use.

Yarn Organizer
For the price, it was cheaply made. I am very disappointed. It doesn't fit together properly. The top will not go down flush. I expected better quality.
Dec 21, 2014
Terrible quality! I returned this item!
I have never been this disappointed in a product. This yarn organizer would have lasted about a week before it fell apart. It was made of flimsy coated cardboard! Only the top was plastic! I would never give this as a gift!It couldn't even be assembled because the parts were cut to the wrong sizes. They didn't fit together. Even if they did, I would never have kept this item. The quality was below zero!
Dec 14, 2014
It's a little flemize. but nice
It's not all that sturdy
Dec 08, 2014
I would not buy this again
I purchased 2 based on the photo and description in the catalog. It had to be assembled which was a big hassle - took about 40 minutes each. The walls and inside dividers are made of some sort of thin plastic coated over a very thin material. The middle section dividers fall apart very easily. A good idea but the product quality is very poor. I am trying to use it but not really happy with the product. I find it a bit of a hassle because once you run your yarn through the top and have a project in process, your project is "attached" to the container until you finish or cut the skein.

Hard to assemble and wont stay together
I bought this for my mother for mothers day . I like to never got it assembled and she had to duck tape it because it kept coming apart. Other then that she likes it except for when the grandbabies poke her yarn back through the holes lol.

Yard Organizer
I was suprised when the Yarn Organizer came in peices. It is difficult to put together. Every time I place yard in it and pick it up from the floor it falls apart.. Not sure why it doesnt stay together.. Doesnt fit right in the groves.. I am not happy with this product... I may return it
Feb 20, 2014
Not too impressed, at first...
I got this for my Mother is law because apparently she is Obsessed with this currently. She always kept her yarn in a grocery bag, and would often lose precious knitting needles, and/or yarn would unravel making her frustrated. So I got her this, and "foolishly assumed" it was put together upon arrival, this Big box, for a smaller box inside.She took it out w/a puzzled look on her face, but once her son (my Husband) put it together for her she started using it immediately! She STILL has that grocery bag of yarn and such (old knitting habits die hard I guess..LoL), but she does seem to like the portability of it the most.
Jan 31, 2014
I LOVE IT. My son and his girlfriend gave it to me for Christmas. They gave it to me already assembled, but I could see how it can come apart easily. I may run some super glue on the compartments to hold them together. It is just perfect for me. Now I don't have yarn all over the sofa. I will get another one for me, and one to surprise my girlfriend (my crochet buddy) since she just started crocheting. Great idea!
Jan 19, 2014
This was a wonderful gift for my crochet buddy! She loves it and had no issues with assembly.
Jan 04, 2014
don't judge a book by its cover
it should come assembled, very disappointed, can't use it till I can get some ones help. Didn't see any comment about it was unassembled in the description

Yarn Organizer works Great!
It took my sister and a friend to put hers together, but, she absolutely loves it. I doubt she'd ever give it up now. She says it makes it so much easier to do multicolored hats and afghans. And that the threads have a little hook so the ends of the yarn that aren't being used don't fall into the container.

yard organizer
i found it to be fairly easy to put together, but at the same time i was surprized of what it was maade out of(plactic) being not strong and with litter help can flod /buckle on one.
Jun 15, 2013
Will use this over and over again!!!!
Great for keeping yarns divided and clean.
Apr 18, 2013
Assembly hard and instructions not clear
Could be assembled and shipped in a stronger design. Very hard to put together, as the components weren't strong enough to stay once assembled.
Jan 05, 2013
Not the best choice
Assembly was a little difficult, the sections were hard to get into the slots. It is too big to be truly portable, or storable. Can't store project conveniently. With holes so small you have to cut the yarn move your project to another bag/box for portability, they should have side slots to the outside so you can just slide the yarn in and out as needed. When it is fully assembled with 6 sections, only regular to small skeins fit - no average to large balls, skeins or cones - and taking it apart to change compartments is inconvenient at best. Lid and handle keep falling off with normal use. That said, it works o.k., but not great, for those skeins that fit.

it is ok
no mess
May 07, 2012
Poor design
This product is unwieldy and poorly designed. Such a simple idea but very poorly executed. Should be taken out of catalog.
May 03, 2012
I would not recommend this product
Product couldn't even be put together

Not very helpful
My daughter got this for me for Christmas because I thought it would be helpful with crocheting my afghans. I use at least three colors for my favorite pattern. Anyway, I open it up and it had to be assembled. That was the first bummer. It was difficult to assemble and the plastic seperators were not easily put in place. Once I spent quite a bit of time on that, I preceeded to try & put in my yarn. Well, you can only use small skeins if you make all six divisions. I had large skeins. Back to adjusting the container. I adjusted the container to fit my skeins. Then I put the lid on. Everything fine. I start to crochet and found that I had several problems. One the yarn kept catching on the little indentations on the lid. Two, as I crocheted my yarn kept getting tangled (which this item claimed should not happen) because I flip the blanket as I make it. Thirdly, when I went to untangle it I couldn't because the lid was on. So I had to cut my yarn and untangle the mess and continue on. Currently, I am using it without the lid. It seems to be a good way of keeping the yarn from rolling around the floor. I am also able to untangle the yarn as needed. I guess if it sounds too good to be true then it is. I expected my yarn not to get tangled as I crocheted because that was what it promised. But deep dowm I knew that it could not be so with so many colors being used at one (unless you cut on every row, then possibly). I would not purchase this again because I could have done the samething with one of my bags.

Knit, knit, crochet
Helps organize my yarn now that I have started to knit and crochet since I quit smoking
Feb 12, 2012
Probably purchase again.
Purchased this years ago. I love it when I have several yarns that I need to use. Keeps yarn clean and untangled. The only thing I didn't like is the middle green brace. It didn't stay in place. So I glued all the pieces in place.

Yarn organizer
Holds up to six skeins of yarn which is great for us crocheters and knitters. It is the best storage container I've found. A little hard to put together but well worth the effort.
Feb 01, 2012
yarn orginizer is great
I do allot of crocheting and the yarn get dirty from being on the floor but this is great
Jan 18, 2012
Lakeside.com has it so much cheaper
Love this, but can get it cheaper at Lakeside.com
Jan 01, 2012
It does what it says.
I was expecting a fully assembled unit, but when it arrived I was disappointed to find that it had to be assembled. The lid is a problem also because it does not clasp onto the rim. My 11 month old daughter figured out how to get the yarn out in 30 seconds of my first use. Not good when she's the reason my husband bought it for me.
Dec 27, 2011
I would buy this again
it was great
Dec 19, 2011
I would buy this product again.
Bought it for my Mom to use for Christmas. She has not got it yet but I know she is going to love it as she carries her crochet stuff in a box. This is so much nicer.
Dec 12, 2011
I would buy it again
My Friend is very pleased with it.
Oct 28, 2011
great too;
My wife love it,

Makes Crochet Speedy!
I used the product, and true to the picture, I was able to create a crochet afghan using knitting needles! I just pulled one strand of each color and worked with all of them at the same time, it's incredible!I will never crochet with a hook again!

Yarn Organizer
Lacks of better instruction, should show image of Yarn Organizer in COLOR so that it could be set up easily.
Jun 19, 2011
I don't know how I managed without this.
Get one now!!
May 28, 2011
I do recomend this product to anyone who have had surgeries or any pains that ale them. It is lightweight & durable. I got this for my Mom, she can take it with her everywhere she goes. All that is needed are the correct instructions for putting it together, I think with any product, no matter how simple, should always come with Intructions. I enjoy puzzle games, but putting together this product is like trying to solve a riddle, yet fun. It is strong & durable, but pretty flimsy while putting together, since it is a gift, I don't want to take any chances in it's durability by having it fall apart on just the guessing to complete it.
May 27, 2011
very good organizer for my yarn crochet
I will use this product when making afghans with different colors. with this organizer I will not have to have a bag with all the skeins I need plus crochet hooks etc. this is a good thing for a gift to someone that crochets and/or knits as a hobby or makes things for gifts.
May 11, 2011
Not the greatest
The dividers don't stay together well in the center and I am constantly fixing it. The idea is great, but it just doesn't live up to the hype. I'm going to look for another way to keep my yarn separate.
Apr 22, 2011
Not up to my expectations
This product did not look like what it represented in the catalogue. I assumed it was one piece and would come put together. It was a little challenging to get put together, but after assembly, it has performed up to my expecations. I think it would have been a better design out of one piece rather than the corrugated plastic.
Mar 28, 2011
The yarn organizer is great.
Keeps the yarn from tangling

Piece of Junk
A waste of time and money. It is made of a cheap cardboard, very flimsy, and falls apart easily.
Mar 12, 2011
never say you don"t like it till you try
easy to take and carry when i go away.
Feb 28, 2011
It does what it says!
Falls apart easily, used superglue to solve this. Handle won't stay attached.
Jan 16, 2011
Big Disappointment
Description did not mention Assembly Required. For [$], I assumed I was getting a functioning tote. Not a jigsaw puzzle. Could not get sides attached to the bottom, did not even try attaching to top. Returning as soon as possible.

Best Money I Ever Spent !!!!!!
Great product, just what I was looking for. It was a little difficult to put together but once I got it together it was just perfect. You really can't store knitting needles in there but the crochet hooks store perfectly. It keeps my yarn for my project from getting mixed up and tangled. Best money I have ever spent !!!!!!!
Nov 14, 2010
great organizer for yarn
great for organizing yarn and keeping it tangle free, keeps it from getting away from me and rolling across the floor. easy to transport. easy to assemble. only draw back is design of central compartment for needles. if you use it for crochet hooks they sit low in compartment and as I put my hand in to get them the small walls to the compartment catch on my hand and jar it loose and I must reassemble that area. Solution: just store your crochet hook with the item you're working on. A great product. I would order it again or give it as a gift!
Nov 11, 2010
This was a blessing to my crocheting.
I use the yarn organizer every time I crochet and I just love it. I havenn't found anything that I don't enjoy about it.
