It's just down the road from the Bedford Mall. Martin's is actually right on Second St. (the address must be different, maybe it faces Blake Rd). It's a big white building, kind of looking like a house, and it has these large squares in rainbow colors on the side. There is a shopping plaza right next to it with Hannaford's and Panera and such.

I also wanted to mention that the NH Sheep and Wool Festival is next weekend, May 12 and 13, and it is awesome (definitely worth an hour or two drive!) The website is www.yankeeshepherd.com

I'm in Plymouth, NH now and for the summer (slightly north of the Lakes Region) and in Manchester after that (I'll also be in Manchester most weekends this summer). I spin but badly (well I like what I spin but I'm not sure it would be acceptable to everyone). MissHawklet, where in the Manchester/Nashua area are you going to be? (i'm an admirer of your spinning on the fiber friday board and I liked your blurb in Spin to Knit)

There's also The Fiber Studio in Henniker, which isn't too far from Concord (about fifteen minutes). I'm a big fan--a bunch of yarn and fiber in an old barn, and the owner is really nice. On the seacoast there's Charlotte's Web in Exeter and another one in Dover, I'm not sure what it's called. I haven't been to those two so I won't vouch for them. I haven't had any bad experiences at the Yarn Basket in Portsmouth, but I had a double attack at Ewe'll Love It in Nashua (and it's very expensive--on average the yarns were marked up least two dollars more than other stores sell them for). And if you're in/near Manchester, my hometown, we recently got Pearl's Yarn Shop, which is small but adorable with lots of great yarns (and the owner is very nice). There's more but I can't remember right now.  Smiley

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Stitch 'n Bitch Page-a-Day Calendar!!!! on: March 14, 2007 07:15:46 AM
so I always like to check out the "web sightings" on wednesdays, but I was disappointed and a little insulted by menknit.net. For one thing, he insults the Stitch'n'Bitch books and Debbie Stoller in two separate places, saying that it's only a "passable" knitting instruction book and that the book is insulting and just plain wrong. I work in a yarn shop and spend a lot of time looking through the instruction books so that I know which ones are the best to recommend to people, and I always recommend Stitch'n'Bitch. Even if they might not like the patterns, the instructions are the best illustrated I've found and the writing is clear and encouraging without being condescending, and it has the best balance of instructions and patterns. Furthermore, although I love and happen to agree with Stoller's feminist leanings, I can't recall any place where she insults men or claims they can't or shouldn't knit (in fact, I think the opposite is true, since she is working on a book devoted to men and boys knitting). Also, it is especially annoying that he claims that Stoller's history is just "wrong" when he then quotes Wikipedia on his history page, since anyone can post whatever they want on Wikipedia (I know there are some regulations, but the general agreement in the acadmenic world is that Wikipedia is fine for general information on a subject but it should not really be quoted as an accurate source).
   I was just really disappointed. I was hoping that it would be a great source of encouragement for men to knit and a way for women and men knitters to connect (since the two groups are often separated), and instead I feel like I'm back on the playground in elementary school and it's boys against girls again.  Sad

I know this is a really old thread but I thought I would share the sad news with you anyway. My mom said that Levine's closed several years ago. We used to go there all the time. I am so bummed. If you're looking for fabric stores in the area, there is Fabric Fix just off of Second St. and also Martin's on the other end of Second St. in Bedford.
