DH and I spent the last two weeks in Wisconsin, traveling around the state and seeing the sights. While we were there, I got to visit a few yarn shops. Because of course I did! In Madison, my first yarn shop was the Sow’s Ear. Technically this store is in Verona, which is a close… Continue reading The Yarn Shops of Madison Wisconsin
There are a couple pretty good yarn shops in Anchorage. Wooly Mammoth downtown is kind of high-end, but is the place to go for all-Alaskan yarn. Quilt Tree/Yarn Branch is good if you are bi-craftual, but they seem more quilty than they are yarny. In my opinion, Far North Yarn Company is the best LYS… Continue reading Far North Yarn Company

For anybody not familiar with Anchorage downtown shops, Quilted Raven is an awesome Alaska theme quilt/sewing/fabric shop, well worth… Continue reading Wooly Mammoth – new shop!
This past week I went to Juneau for work, and was lucky enough to be able to take my Mom along with me. We had a great time seeing the sights, as she had not been there before. For anyone who has not been to Juneau, if you have a chance, definitely go! There is… Continue reading Went to Juneau, Now I’m Back Again
