I live pretty much at the border of Lutz and Citrus Park. I just started knitting and crocheting this summer and now i'm "hooked" **yes, pun intended!** i've bought most of my yarn at Joann's or Michaels, Walmart, too. I was wondering if anyone knew of any other places where I can find tools of the trade, yarn, and new pattern books. I recently went to a shop off of Gunn and N. Mobly, they had TONS of gorgeous yarns, many priced beyond my means right now, but what a fun store.

I'd love to hear your input/suggestions if you're familiar with any other places.

There's a place...I think it's on Busch, but you may have to look in the yellow pages. I know it's in there though...it's a coffee shop and a yarn store. Haven't been there yet since I have way too much yarn now and I've been sewing. There are a couple of us that get together at USF to craft Tuesday nights if you wanna come out. There are knitters and crocheters Smiley

hmm... i checked the yellow pages both online and the actual book and the only places i'm getting are Knit n Nibble on S. Dale Mabry and Fiber Art on N. Mobley. Can't find anything on Bush  Huh

I was thinking of knit and nibble lol. I guess it's not on Busch. I was thinking of a different coffee shop I guess. Other than that, I think Tampa is devoid of yarn stores. If you want some specialty yarn or something you may need to turn to the web.

I have found great vintage yarns at estate sales. I feel kind of bad sometimes that I get such a great deal but then if I were to pass I would want someone to have my yarn and other sewing stuff so it would not go to waste. I just got a huge bin full of yarn and fabric at one for 10.00!

I am new to Tampa, from Sarasota. I am near the Citrus Park mall area. I love Walmart for my other yarns they hold up very well and you so cannot bet the price.

The only other places I can think of is like the other poster said (forgetful memory can't rember your name sorry) is on the web try ebay you may find some great deals there.

I would have said Knit and Knibble but someone else did! The Michaels in Britton Plaza on Dale Mabry (I THINK that's the street) has yarn there but I don't recall it having a terribly extensive collection. I think there's a Jo-anns around Citrus Park  but I don't know cause I don't live there.

early to bed and early to rise, and you'll meet few of our best people.
