about Churchmouse Yarns & Teas on Tue Apr 06 06:19:43 -0500 2010

Came here on holiday. A lovely store with friendly staff. Crazy selection of Addi's. Will be back if I am in the area.

about Heaven Stitch & Design Company on Tue Apr 06 06:24:08 -0500 2010

Visited here in the summer from out of town. A small but nice selection of yarn. Friendly staff.

about Stitches Fibre Art on Wed Apr 14 15:14:34 -0500 2010

The store is a mixture of knitting/crochet, quilting, felting and sewing. It was fun to see the things for other crafts. Not a very big yarn selection, but what they did have was nice. The staff helped me figure out yardage for a project from Ravelry.

about Knits by the Sea Yarn Shop on Thu Nov 18 05:54:12 -0600 2010

Visited recently on vacation. A physically smaller store, but there is lots of yarn. I really like that they carry yarn from independent dyers such as: Sweet Georgia, Yarn Candy, Painted Fleece, Indigo Moon etc. The owner was really friendly and gave the BF a candy cane. Will be back next time I am in the area.

about Button & Needlework Boutique on Thu Nov 18 05:57:23 -0600 2010

This store is about 1/3 buttons, 1/3 needlepoint, and 1/3 yarns/knitting. They have a big selection of knitting books and patterns and good selection of needles. I enjoy coming in - the staff make me feel welcome.

about Needle & Arts Centre on Thu Nov 18 06:02:44 -0600 2010

They have a fairly large selection of yarns to choose from, though little of that is from independent dyers or luxury yarn (unless I missed it). I don't get into the area very often, but I will probably pop in next time.

about Beehive Wool Shop on Thu Nov 18 06:11:27 -0600 2010

This is the biggest yarn store in Victoria. It has a large selection of a wide variety of yarns, though not much from independent dyers. Despite the selection, this is not my favorite store. Staff can come across as a bit rude and can, intentionally or not, make you feel stupid (that could be me - I am quiet and shy). On the upside it is the only place in town (that I know of) that stocks Handmaiden and Fleece Artist.
