about The Woolly Lamb Yarn Studio on Sat Aug 14 04:32:32 -0500 2010

Visited this store with Dani Cortez, who was traveling cross-country blogging about the culture of knitting in different cities. Fell in love with it immediately! Everyone was so warm and welcoming. Very envious of all the knitters who get to call this shop 'home'.

Visited today for the first time, and cannot say enough wonderful things about this shop. Wonderful selection, top-notch staff. Friendly, helpful, fun. What more could you want in a yarn shop! Also have beading and needlework supplies. Will be back, and often.

Had heard great things about the shop, so have to assume my visit was on an off day. Staff seemed less than interested in dealing with customers. Good selection, and nice layout, but staff makes or breaks a store IMHO.

about Smoky Mountain Spinnery on Sat Aug 14 04:43:47 -0500 2010

My only negative....this store is in Tennessee and I live in Illinois! Whenever I get to travel back down to the Smokies, this store is on my must visit list. Last time I WALKED from downtown G'burg because the bus never came. Nothing was going to keep me from visiting my favorite out of town store. I always find yarn that no one here in the Chicago area seems to carry. Wonderful store, wonderful owners, wonderful experience. YOU MUST GO HERE if you are in the area.
