Great! Sounds like fun. Thanks.
I discovered a great yarn shop in Tempe called Tempe Yarn. http://tempeyarnandfiber.blogspot.com/
1415 East University Drive
Tempe, Arizona 85281
(In the University Plaza
Between Rural & McClintock)
(The shop is off of University and Rural road. Go east on University and it's about a mile and a half or so and the store is inside a small strip mall across from a thai restaurant on the south side. )
It's not a huge shop like Joanne's craft store. There is a variety of beautiful colorful yarn,
wool for felting, and other types of wool, some felting kits, and there is even some fun knitting or crocheting classes there.
