New Yarn Store Alert

For those of you in the Iowa City area, there is a new yarn store open in the downtown area. It's called Home Ec, and is located on North Linn across from the Hamburg Inn. It's incredibly cute selling yarn, fabric, and patterns in a spacious store with space in the back for holding workshops. While they don't have the largest yarn selection in town, they offer some different varieties that I haven't seen in other stores and which should compliment the other two local stores. It's an incredibly cute space.

A big thanks to the Iowa Ravelry board for pointing this out.

Great news! I had heard a "craft shop" was getting a small business grant in the downtown area but I couldn't imagine where they were going to go -- I'll definitely check it out.

Great. Just what I need within walking distance from work!

Seriously though, thanks for pointing this out. :)

If I go to Oasis for lunch and happen to get sidetracked by yarn, I may have to blame you. Yarn shops that are within walking distance from where I work are dangerous.

OK, I know exactly where that is. Do you know if they have a website? I'll have to make a pitstop the next time I am in town.

Hi, I went to a birthday party there this weekend and it was great! Very cool stuff and they do have a website; it is: www.homeecworkshop.com

Ack! I'm so jealous. I leave town and yarn shops spring up all over the place!
