New yarn shop! I haven’t been to a new yarn shop in well over a year, and suddenly 2 new ones in 3 weeks! This week’s new yarn shop was Conversational Threads in Emmaus PA. I got to stop in there during our visit back to the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania.
They opened just after we moved to Alaska, so I had not been there before. The shop is in a lovely old building and has a really pleasant, cozy vibe. When I was there, it was manned by two volunteers, who were welcoming and friendly, and gave me a quick tour of the shop. The yarn selection is pretty amazing, and they have a wide array of needles and other tools.
They are definitely on the high end of yarns, with lots of hand dyes and luxury fibers in stock. They also carried stock from some local dyers, which was nice to see. I didn’t go too crazy shopping, but did pick up a few local yarns and a project bag that was made by the shop owner herself! I also got a Laine magazine, which I have been wanting to check out, but I hadn’t seen them in a shop before.
It will probably be a good long time before I get to another new shop, but I’m really glad I got to check this one out!
