These are just a few of the places I like to visit. I hope you enjoy them!
Places to Shop:
The Knitter’s Edge – This yarn shop opened in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, a few years ago and has grown to be a Lehigh Valley icon. Not only does the store carry a fantastic array of yarns, they also feature weekly classes and a place to knit and crochet that features a huge bay window.
Finger Lakes Fibers Yarn Store – Every September I spend a weekend in the Finger Lakes region wine-tasting with friends. I never miss an opportunity to visit this yarn shop in Watkins Glen, NY. A great place for local artisan yarn…..
Jimmy Bean’s Wool – Jimmy’s specializes in hand-dyed yarns. Their signature line is Lorna’s Laces. Some of the finest yarns around!
Interweave – Interweave produces two of my favorite magazines and home of the CrochetMe and Knitting Daily blogs.
Places to Give Back:
Mother Bear Project – Providing handknit bears to children affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations.
