there's a really great little yarn shop up by me. it's right off of route 6 in chaplin (windham county) called 'yarns with a twist.' it's owned by a super sweet woman named sandee. my mom and i go there frequently. there's yarn there for everyone--no matter what your budget is. some of the hand spun she carries is just gorgeous! i love checking it out every time i'm there, even if it's out of my price range!  Cheesy

Amen, indeed.

There's also The Needlework Shoppe in Westport (1 Wilton Rd., corner of Rte 1 and 33).  (203) 227-8098.  I've only been there once... but they have needlepoint and a (limited) cross stitch selection as well as lots and lots of yarn.

Im in south western CT. Selmas is the only place I have gone to. Im in the Brookfield/Danbury area, and I cannot find any great places to get good yarn.
Ive only been knitting for a very very short time, but Im addicted, so I went to go look for some "fancy" yarn.
I went to the generic Micheals and Ragshop in town and their selection is alright, then there is the Fabric tree by Danbury Fair Mall, they have a large yarn section in the back, but they didnt have anything I was looking for. what they did have was good quality, but very expensive. lots of handmade and hand dyed stuff! it was so pretty o_o

There's actually a really nice yarn shop in Bethel, it's on Greenwood Ave, right across the street from the Bethel Cinema. The women who run it are so nice and helpful.  It's called a Stitch in Time, I think the actual address is in the original post for this thread.
There's also the Village Sheep in New Milford, I've never been but have heard good things and they have a pretty website.

i went to the village sheep - nice store, rather largeish, but when i was there there was a lady that asked help from the owner and the lady didn't know how to knit, but yet the owner directed her towards rowan Big yarn (expensive!!) and rowan books. That is when i lost my respect for her.

That's where I used to shop when I lived in the area.  One thing I liked about that store is that they had supplies for a wide range of crafts, including needlepoint, cross stitch, knitting, crochet, etc.  I also found the owner and staff to be very helpful.

has anyone been to this place?

ENCHANTING YARNS. 25 N MAIN ST. KENT, CT 06757 (860)927-5241.

I'm still working thru a big box of yarn I got from my mom and from a garage sale.. but someday I'll buy something new ^_^

the village sheep in NM is a little too scary and pricey for me, not too friendly to a n00b...  Cry

I'm going to be starting at UConn's law school in a few months, so I'll be moving to the Hartford/W Hartford area.  Can anyone recommend a good LYS in this area?

west hartford has a relatively small LYS called sitnknit. Its in a relatively ritzy part, but doesn't seem TOO expensive, as far as LYS go. I went there.. three weeks ago?
