I know there's a new knitting/yarn store in Helena. Does anyone know of a closer one? There's *got* to be one in the Ham somewhere.


Thanks!

(I know I can get yarn at Hobby Lobby/Michael's/AC Moore/Wal-Mart/Hancock. I want better yarn than that.)

there arent any others that i know of, i just get my "crappy" yarn at AC Moore and make the occasional drive to helena for the good stuff... if you havent been to the one in helena, i urge you to go, they have some beautiful yarn, and the staff is awesome. i hope another one opens soon or i find out about another one tho... and i want to make a roadtrip to huntsvegas soon to stock up, because i hear they have several awesome yarn stores....

Really? Huntsvegas does? I may make a trip up there as well.

I will try the one in Helena. Thanks!

BTW I didn't mean to imply that yarn from the mega stores was crappy. I get all my yarn from there as well right now. I just want something that they don't offer.

You might want to try Serendipity Needleworks in Tuscaloosa. The shop has been in business for about two years now. I've also heard about Knit Nouveau, but I have no first hand knowledge about the business. I hope this helps!

NOON!? Jeeze, that's insane. Do you know where they're located? And if they're open on Saturdays?

I second the recommendation for Serendipity Needleworks!  The lady in there told me that they purposely try to have different yarn than the chain craft stores.  When I was in there a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to buy everything in the store because I am so used to Michael's/Hobby Lobby acrylic yarns, and here I was in a store with all this beautiful wool, cotton, alpaca yarns, a lot of it imported!  It's a bit more expensive than the chain stores, but definitely not bad at all considering what you get for your money (I got two balls of beautiful blue Italian wool yarn for $6.50...half off sale).  They don't have a website you can order from yet, but the lady told me they are working on it.  When I was in there, she was looking for yarn for a woman who had been in there but moved away and emailed her to ask if they had something.  I know this is a late reply, but I had to share my experiences with the store, because it is definitely worth going to if you can't find a place like it in Birmingham.

I know this is far off, but if you're ever in Montgomery, there is a place called the Knit Shop (or maybe they spelled it Shoppe) in the Mulberry District. 

I just got back from visiting family in the hospital there, and the Knit Shop is only about five minutes from Baptist South Hospital, so I cheered myself up by cuddling with yarn.  Nice shop, very comfortable with "down home" feel to it.
