YARN SHOP HOP

We were greeted with coffee, donuts and a generous 25% discount at our first stop:

The waitress directed us to a candle shop across the street but we decided we wanted MORE YARN so we skipped the candle shop and proceeded to:


BIRDS OF FEATHER

This was a fun day and we hope to plan more Shop Hops for the future!!

you didn't go to the fiber shop across the street from Birds of a Feather? They have some cool stuff too. Great rovings there. Definitely.
