someone in Michael's told me about the yarn stores but it was too late on a Saturday to get to them. Sad I am going to try to get there soon though.

I just joined to say that I'm from Rapid City. There aren't many of us out there, are there?

Ooooh, I was just in Rapid City on the 26th for the after-christmas shopping sales.  Roll Eyes

Hi, Mobridge SD here, used to be from east of Aberdeen (Groton) but moved a year ago.  Yarn here?  Lion brand fun furs and Red Heart (yikes).  I spin so I have my own stash of wool yarn.  Internet is good for yarn shopping too!  There is also a Yarn Knit in Aberdeen as one of the owners of the store lives just 10 miles south east of Aberdeen and has camels on her farm! The Sioux Falls store opened first and then she opened the one in Aberdeen.  Anyway,  nice yarns there.  Groton has a small store with some nice yarns and fiber but is only open one day per week and that is Thursday.   Anyone know of any other spinning and yarn shops?

Athena Fibers just opened in Sioux Falls, too, a couple months ago.  It's on Hawthorne I believe, just south of 41st.  It's in a very residential district, in an old Victorian style house.  I may be biased, since I do know the owner, but I like this store a lot better than Yarn Knit.  Athena has more "traditional," basic yarns, and less froofy stuff.  And I think they just go in some spinnng fibers.  Definately worth checking out!

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

Hello! I'm from Rapid City as well. It would seem there truly are only a few of us South Dakotans here. I actually stumbled upon this site while looking for local knitting or SnB groups. If anyone knows of one or might be interested in forming one, please let me know. Thanks!

Hi all, just wanted to jump in and say I'm from SD too, north of Sioux Falls, although we are moving to the Aberdeen area this summer.  I'm going to miss the craft and fabric stores in Sioux Falls.  Oh well, I guess I'll have more of an excuse to shop online...LOL

I know some of these posts are old, but anyway, I'm in ND right now, but the hubby and I might be moving to rapid city area.. (hopefully).  What kind of stores are down there for craft supplies???

I went to school in Vermillion and even though I'm in Omaha now, I try to get up to Sioux Falls every once in a while -- I'm in mad, mad love with the fiber shop and the yarn shop and the fabric shop for quilters up there.  Mrrowr.  (There are yarn shops here in Omaha, but nothing that sells fiber for spinning, so I have to drive up to get a fix now and again. :>)

I'm also in Sioux Falls. I head up a Stitch 'N' Bitch group that meets Friday nights at Camille's. Any and all are welcome. Knitters, crocheters, cross-stitchers...anyone with a portable craft.
I had no idea there was another one! You should get listed on stitchnbitch.org!

I also teach knitting at the SF Michaels talked about earlier. We definitely carry more than the LB Boucle, but no fisherman's. If you're looking for anything Lion Brand in SF, the place to go is Hancock Fabrics. That's the only brand they carry! I know they have the fisherman's wool since I've looked around for yarns I can dye. Hobby Lobby and Michaels both carry Lion Brand also, but different selections. Like Hobby Lobby carries their 100% wool, whereas the only 100% wool Michaels carries is Patons.

If anyone is planning a trip to SF to look for a specific yarn, feel free to email me first. I shop for yarn WAY more than I should. The only place I hardly ever go is Yarn Knit. I love the service there....I just can't afford half of what they carry and I'm rarely in the neighborhood. Athena's has a great "classic" yarn selection and I drive by it all the time. They also have very reasonable prices. They know me pretty well in there. Smiley I just bought a GREAT drop-spindle from them for under $15 and they have a great price on wool roving as well. To top it off, Judy (one of the owners), helped me figure out what I was doing wrong on my student spindle!
