i'm wondering if anyone can help with a process i'm at the very beginning of?  we have a special needs child, who is going to be attending a theraputic boarding school in new england, starting next fall, for at least three and probably four to five years.  i'm very excited about the school, but i'm not very excited about the distance from home (we're in the south).

although i don't currently sell my yarn in brick and mortar stores, i've decided to try and identify and approach a few (maybe in the range of 5 to 10) stores and see if i can create a customer base nearby.  His school is in Connecticut, so that would be my first choice, but I am thinking New England in general would be fine.

Does anyone have suggestions of hip yarn stores in the area to offer?  I will also try to look for some art galleries that might be interested in featuring some of my art -- i do mixed media/altered art collage and assemblage.  the link to my work is www.elliebelly.com

i would really appreciate any suggestions, since I don't know the area at all.  Thanks!

There is Webs in Northampton, Ma (www.yarn.com) and the Creative Needle in Amherst, MA. The first is a larger store with a huge range of products. The second is much smaller, homier, and has a nice selection as well.
