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.
