about Vermont Beads & Fibers on Thu Aug 14 18:37:38 -0500 2008

Discovered this store at the end of a hectic and exhausting college road trip with my daughter. We were in heaven - my daughter is a beader and I am a fanatic knitter. The store is gorgeous inside - the layout and colors are stunning and the area to sit and knit is very comfortable. Susannah, the owner, is an absolutely lovely person, as is the gal who works with her (sorry - forgot your name!). I really wanted to get some Vermont-made yarn and they had a wonderful selection. Hoping my daughter goes to school in Middlebury so I can visit often!

combination yarn, fabric, and gift shop - very cute - fun to hang out in. very friendly personnel. not a ton of yarn to choose from, but not bad considering it's a small shop in a small town. May even have expanded since I was there 8 months ago. Once my daughter starts school at Carleton, I will definitely be back and encouraging her to shop there as well when she wants me to make her a sweater or socks or gloves. :-)

about Zandy's Yarn Etc. on Wed Mar 24 04:06:25 -0500 2010

I found this shop very pleasant when I visited it in October 2009. I was visiting my daughter in college, desperately needed a "yarn fix", but was limited on time. I found Zandy's on the way to my daughter's school, stopped in, and was treated wonderfully - got great service and found just what I wanted. I plan to go back every time I visit my daughter in school.

about Spin A Yarn & Tea Shoppe on Sat May 08 03:52:03 -0500 2010

My friend and I discovered the shop by accident while we were roaming around Vacaville last week. It was a very pleasant shop with a very pleasant gal staffing it that day. The selection was pleasant - not spectacular, but very satisfying for someone like me who needed a "yarn fix". It was an interesting mix of current yarn and some discontinued (I think) yarns. For me, it was an oasis after a day of boring same-old-same-old in the outlet stores. The gal at the shop was knitting a pretty, airy shawl from some pretty Cascade Pearls yarn and I loved the colors of the yarn, so i bought 4 skeins - on sale, no less! So, I have no complaints. Pleasant store that I will go to whenever I am in Vacaville so I can get a yarn and knitting fix.
