Okay, so this isn't in Charlotte or Concord, but I fell in LOVE with a yarn shop today.  I am pretty faithful to Charlotte Yarn and go there for every question and shred of yarn that has been knit in the last 2 months.  BUT, I went to the Fuzzy Mabel today and am FLOORED!!! She had AWESOME prices and a HUGE selection.  If you are hankering for a road trip, or just adore really great yarn- this is a great spot.  Just take 485 to Johnston Road S and take it to the sunset.  This will turn into 521 and will literally take you straight to Fuzzy Mabel.  It is just like following the Yellow Brick Road (or perhaps the Yellow Alpaca Trail).  She has an entire clearance corner.  She mentioned that she is online too.  Good luck.  FYI- she is closed on Sunday and Monday.

Thanks for sharing, I'll have to check that out! 

How far down 521 S is it?  I live down that way, and I haven't seen it- so I'm guessing I pass it at some point I've never noticed.

I live down that direction too and I had no idea there was another yarn shop out that way.  I usually go to Rainy Day in Pineville or our usual generic craft stores.  I'll have to go check that out on Tuesday!   Cheesy

I went down to visit Fuzzy Mabel and it is quite a wonderful store.  I almost missed it because it doesn't have a big sign to look for.  I got some fantastic yarn that I can't wait to start working with.  One of the huge skeins I got will be turning into my mom's Christmas present.   Cheesy

i live in mooresville, so its a little bit of a drive but we have a local coffee shop (three goats-they have awesome gelato btw, and a frozen coffee thing with gelato IN it-craving one right now!) with a knit/crochet night. they dont call it a stitch n bitch, but its the same thing (idk if the store would let them advertise it with a "curse" word because a lot of moms bring their kids in the morning) and our caribou coffee, which IS a chain coffee shop, but the staff is sooooo nice and they all know us by name, is always looking for groups to start up to take up space in the evenings....if youre comfortable with it, start your own group! then you can pick your time and place--whatevers the easiest for you!

sorry if this is a little out there.  but is anybody in the Charlotte/RockHill area working with fulled/felted wool sweaters and wants some supplies?
my mum has moved out of the country and left me her house full of things to sort out.  a friend's brother is helping me sell her stuff.  but this is something i know people are using but not really the sort of thing that people would know how to sell.  so i wondered if anybody wanted to come get them.  PM me if you work with that material, and we could arrange something.
