Lovely folks and sweet shop, I enjoy being a yarn tourist and found some beautiful" local" yarns! My favorite part of going into a new shop. Thank you Meta & John

Metaphor is a gem, a happy surprise for the yarn tourist. For me, it was a destination on the I-91 Shop Hop, so I wasn't vacationing in the area, but I'd like to! We shop hoppers were directed to park in the back and come in through the adjacent quilting shop. I thought my travel companion was going to faint dead away, because she makes quilted knitting bags as well as knits & crochets, and the quilt shop was a feast for the eyes, with friendly proprietors.

At first, I thought Metaphor was a tiny, hole-in the wall shop, but one yarn-filled room gave way to another--and another! A spacious shop, with friendly staff (it was clearly a family affair during the shop hop, which added to the charm) and even a table in the middle of one yarn room on which to assemble and examine yarns. I loved the wall of boutique hand-dyed yarns along the hallway into the classroom/showroom, and I was pleased with the selection of books I found arrayed along a wall of the classroom.

Your store is WONDERFUL right where it is--in the heart of Shelburne Falls!! Expand downstairs, move elsewhere in town but please, please don't move out to the Mohawk Trail!!!
