I'll be visiting Burlington in a few weeks, and was hoping to hit the yarn stores. Does anyone know of a list of LYS's? Other crafty type stores would be great too Smiley

I'm not a knitter myself, but Kalidescope Yarns is right here in Essex Junction, and they're listed in the Stitch'n'Bitch book.  Plus, when I did a search for their link, I found sites describing how awesome their customer service is.

Very easy to get to from Burlington, I promise!

Margie's Muse in Jamaica is great...she has a website but nothing is really listed on it except her weaving.

She is amazing and her shop is packed full of yarns and local fibers and so much more...and she is one of the folks who does the Jamaica Fiber Festival in May....

Check it out, she rocks....I and her prices are amazingly reasonable for the yarns....she also carries other handmade stuff, from her own weaving to local glass workers stuff and so on!

Kalidescope is the only one I remember and it really is super easy to get to from burlington.  they are wicked sweet and it's a nice shop, just hard to get into the parking lot is all.... (if they're even in the same house by 5 corners)  that's really cool that they were in stitch n' bitch, they deserve it!

There's the Northeast Fiber Arts store in Williston, right on rt. 2 in the village.  I haven't been to Kaleidoscope yet but have been to NE Fiber Arts and to be honest I didn't have a great experience there.  Undecided  I get most of my knitting supplies at Ben Franklin (Creative Habitat) and have been happy with their stuff.

I lived in Burlington and went to the University of Vermont for two years.  I learned to knit there, and fell in love with Kalidescope Yarns up in Essex Junction.  It is really easy to get to, and I am directionally impaired. 
::sigh:: I miss good old Burlington

there are three local yarn shops in So vt that I frequent

the naked sheep - bennington,vt. great selection of basics. good prices. they also have a yarn club where you get 10% off every purchase if you're a member.
http://www.nakedsheep.com/info.html

yarns by marilyn forbes  Manchester, VT  802-362-3151
hours change - I'd call ahead. Selection is very diverse. A bit pricey - but you can get nearly any fancy italian yarn your heart desires. 16-19 of feb, you get 20% off everything.

black sheep yarns Dorset, VT (802) 867-2422
new shop, great selection, great people. all the newest stuff here.

ooh so excited for you! I just moved out of Burlington to Brooklyn and I miss the yarn stores very much.  Knitters Lane in Shelburne is probably the closest to Burlington, located on 53 Falls Rd. about 10 min. outside the city- they usually have sale yarn and the store owner is kooky and really nice.  My ultimate favorite is Northeast Fiber Arts- they have a great selection of fibers for spinning too, if you need another addiction. I have never enjoyed Kaleidescope too much (they could be friendlier for my taste) but they do have a fantastic selection, including noro, rowan books, etc.

Creative Habitat at Ben Franklin's! I almost forgot! It's so close to Burlington and is one of the few places where you can find safety eyes for making crochet amigurumi animals.  It's a Michael's type store, but has a great selection of budget yarns too.

I go to school in Colchester and everytime my friends and I go to the movies, we drive past Kaleidoscope.  Now I have to stop next time!
