Stop by Home Ec if you're in the area! The staff are super friendly and the inventory is well thought out. The store is about half and half fiber and fabric/sewing plus a lovely bakery/coffee shop.

This is my favorite yarn store in the area. These ladies are amazing and I love being able to get drinks or homemade pastries while I shop. They have always been helpful and friendly. I couldn't imagine having lived in Iowa City without them. If you are around on Saturdays you need to stop by for their brunch.

I stopped at your store in December. The owner asked where sheep skins could be purchased. Here is the contact information from my sister. She has purchased from this company and recommends them:
Bucks County Fur Products, Box 204 , 220 1/2 N. Ambler Street, Quakertown, PA 18951
Phone: 215-536-6614
Thomas L. Kline, President
B. Frederick, Manager

Hope this helps..Nancy Rash, nrash@kirkwood.edu
