Chelsea Yarns

Do you have a good yarn shop in your area??
They are so hard to find these days, aren't they??

I have to drive 30 minutes to reach 
Chelsea Yarn Shop
I don't know if you consider that to be far...
but for me, it is so worth the drive.

Most days, they close at 5 p.m., but their hours changed for Summer.
Right now, on most days, they close at 4 p.m.
I was unaware of that when I arrived recently at two minutes to four,
closing time.
Instead of locking the door, I was greeted so warmly,
and I shopped until my heart was content.
You see...
I needed my yarn, as I have a class on Monday
and I have homework I must complete before arriving.

So enough of that, let me present to you 
Chelsea Yarns














If you knit, you get it!!

  1. My wife has the same problem with cross stitch. She can't find any stores close by that sell them. Michaels Stores haven't sold them for years.

  2. Hello Debbie, where I live everything is 20-30 minutes away. I love this colorful store, the displays and rows of yarn looks pretty. So happy they remained open for your shopping pleasure! Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  4. What a lovely store. I would have gone crazy. How nice they kept it open for you.
    It is like me and wool, they don't sell wool anywhere here. To find a wool shop I have to drive 5 to 6 hours, San Diego or San Francisco.
    Thank goodness for the internet. :) Now, what was your homework?

  7. Oh my goodness, Debbie. Such a beautiful place; I'm so glad they stayed open for you. I need to take a class or something! :)

  8. Wow! If you didn't find something there, it would be nuts! We're lucky here...there are a lot of yarn shops around -- Hooked Fine Yarn Boutique in Haddonfield has beautiful yarn. (hookednj.com) Too bad I can no longer do any needle crafts.

  9. What a find, Debbie!!
    And definitely worth the drive.
    We had one (much smaller than this) yarn shop here a few years ago, but then it just disappeared. :-(

  10. I crochet and I get it!

    I think I could just roll around in that store for the sheer joy of it.

  11. we do have a yarn shot but I don't think it would carry as much as that shop. All very colouful shots.

  12. mmm...maybe I need to engage your help to keep my new friend Sissy warm this winter (our three days of cool weather). Girl is pretty naked. Overheats in minutes. Can't curl up tight enough against the AC.

  15. No yarn shops around here. Maybe a 90 minute drive to the big city to find one!

  18. What a great looking shop.
    My dear mum used to do a lot of knitting and the shop she always used was about a twenty minute walk away ... it has since closed down, which is such a shame. Those that do knit, crochet have further to travel now.

    I am so pleased you were able to go in and enjoy this super place, with it being so near closing time.

    All the best Jan

  19. Wow, what a delightful shop. I'm betting knitters never leave empty handed!!! Have a great week!

  20. Oh, my...I am like this about fabric...color soothes my soul

  21. The yarn selection looks incredible and 30 minutes is not too far. ;)) But I live in a rural area where I must drive 20 to 25 minutes to purchase most of the groceries I want. ;)

  22. Wow that is a big store, we have a bead store that is half beads on one side and yarn on the other, they have lovely yarn you can't buy at JoAnns or Michaels, but it is nothing like this gem. Oh I understand traveling that far for yarn I travel that far for a stamp store in Missouri ;)

  23. Yes we do! It seems they're popping up everywhere too! This is a lovely shop. They are a blast to visit too, it seems there's always something new to see and learn about as well.

  24. That is a amazing yarn shop. If I was into knitting or if I could get myself back into crocheting; I would travel that far.
    Blessings!
