Visiting yarn shops when you travel is a lot of fun, and you can buy a little special something that will remind you of the trip when you knit it into something nice.
But it can be difficult to keep track of all the yarn and fabric stores in the country. Even with a web search you can find outdated listings or miss shops that are so small they might not have a good web presence.
This book is arranged by state and includes a map that locates the towns where each shop is located. A directory listing covers the shops in alphabetical order by town and indicates whether they carry goods related to quilting, knitting (it actually says yarn so crocheters are covered, too), needlepoint, weaving, spinning, cross stitch, embroidery or some combination thereof.
