I thought I'd put in a little plug for my local independent yarn and fabric shops. I love my online shopping, but the in-person experience has much to offer, too: like the time I brought in a quilt top to Round Robin looking for a sashing fabric and a customer started to help me before we'd even spoken; or, the time Khristine let me in The Swift Stitch to shop when she was closed; or, the wonderful events at Luminous Threads, like the meet-n-greet with Heather Ross.

These are the stores I keep coming back to. If you are ever in the area be sure to say hi to these kind, hard-working folk.

The Swift Stitch
Luminous Threads
Hart's Fabrics
Round Robin Fabrics
The Yarn Place

Who are your locals? If you post about your local yarn and/or fabric shops let me know in the comments so we can all visit.

Hey, you are in SC county. That is excellent, those are my locals too. I especially love the Swift Stitch and Round Robin. Although the Yarn Place is right by my house. Hey cool, it's so much more enjoyable knowing you live in my town, more personal. Kind of fun. :D

I live in Brooklyn, NY, so my locals are Purl Patchwork ( and Brooklyn General ( When I move in a few months, I'm really going to miss them. They spoil me! If anyone happens to live in San Antonio, Counry Gatherings ( is great for wool. That's become my local shop when visiting the in-laws!

My locals - ImagiKnit in SF and Article Pract in Oakland for the yarny goodness. And fabric is all about Stonemountain and Daughter in Berkeley. Way to support the small stores Michelle, it is so vital.
