about Foothills Yarn & Fiber on Tue Jun 07 19:42:36 -0500 2011

This is the kind of place you want to find at the end of a long journey; take Highway 35 south out of Hood River and follow the signs. You will travel past orchards and wineries and catch a glimpse of Mount Hood from time to time. When you arrive you will hear how they became famous and see the beautiful alpacas in the barn. I love this shop.

about Wild Purls Yarns on Tue Jun 07 19:50:50 -0500 2011

You're kidding? I'm the first reviewer of this beautiful shop? Lots of space, attractively arranged, and so many samples to see. My impression was enhanced by meeting two women who had ridden bicycles to the LYS. We began to talk and they were warm and friendly, just like the shop.

about Purl Yarn Boutique on Tue Jun 07 19:52:57 -0500 2011

Billings is so fortunate to have two beautiful yarn shops. This has a more contemporary edge, and the customers in the store at the same time I was there were twenty-somethings. Great! I wish Ren all the best with her lovely new LYS.

about Stix on Tue Jun 07 19:57:00 -0500 2011

My experience at this LYS could not have been better. I like the fact that you walk down some outside stairs to the shop; it adds the charm. Yarn selection, arrangement, atmosphere, and service were all outstanding.

about Loopy on Tue Jun 07 20:35:15 -0500 2011

I arrived soon after the shop opened on a beautiful Saturday morning in June. The woman who was working could not have been more lovely and told me about all the farmers' markets in town as well as showing me the yarns that are made locally. I really like this shop.

about Ben and Flo's on Sat May 25 03:42:39 -0500 2013

Charming shop in a charming town. The owner is helpful and knowledgeable, as well as a gifted knitter and artist. A good yarn selection intermingled with art work. A side porch with comfortable seating for sipping and knitting. Hopefully you will be greeted by Ben and Flo, the cats for whom the shop is named.

Charming shop with an abundance of yarn. In a Victorian home in a residential area.

Learned to knit socks two at a time on magic loop here!

Wish it were closer ... It now is closer ... in Valley Junction West Des Moines ... and is called The Yarn Junction!
