Yarn Shop Review

A visit to Victoria's Yarn Shoppe.

A fibery good time was had on Friday when I visited Victoria's Yarn Shoppe. This is a yarn store I stumbled upon; located at 8 E. Main Street in beautiful Girard, PA 16417. Actually, Mary called them a few weeks ago looking for a yarn baller and swift. I had never been to the shop but had heard about it, so off we went on a beautiful Friday afternoon.

The owner is Vicky Foster and she is about the nicest woman ever. She also invited me to the Sit and Knit night they have @ the shop on Monday nights from 6-8pm. This is only one pic I got (I accidently erased the others) of the wall o' yarn in her shop. Vicky carrys beautiful yarns; the standard fare such as Tofuties, Regia sock yarns and some craft store types of yarn like Paton's Wool, etc. She also has lots of examples of her knitting around the store. She showed me around the store, introduced me to some of the ladies that happened to be in the shop, and invited me to have a seat at the table in the back of the store where she, herself, was knitting. She seemed quite intrested in what I was knitting and we had a spontaneous Stitch n Bitch while I worked on my Sock of Doom (The Purple Haze Lorna's Laces socks) and she worked on a hangbag to be felted.

Check her store out! She accepts cash and checks; no credit cards or web page as of yet. She's only about 15-20 minutes from Erie (30 for me cause I drive kinda slow). You'll enjoy yourself.
