For those of you who live in Ontario, have you ever gone to Len's Mill Store for your yarn? Great prices, and even better selection than Michaels. They have stores around Southern Ontario, Canada

Hi, I promise I'm not being snarky, but I Google to find the location of unknown areas. It's fast and you can zoom in and out to find distances or how the storefront actually looks.

Kitchener/Waterloo is about a one hour drive North and a bit West of Hamilton. There are Len's stores in Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo and Hawkesville (all in the Waterloo area). I believe there is also one down near Port Dover area too. Just Google Len's Mill Stores and I think you'll find the info you need. If not, send me another message and I'll be more specific if you tell me what city you are coming from.

There is also a Len's Mill store in Hamilton. I frequently go to the one in Guelph. It has the largest selection I have seen! I get lost in there. I don't like the rest of the store, but I do love the knitting aisles, and there are about 10 rows of yarns. My habit is to now take several patterns with me to the store, so I don't end up bringing the wrong stuff (is there such a thing?) home with me.

BEWARE!! That website has loud, obnoxious advertizing jabber as soon as it opens! Mute the volume, before clicking! They have ten locations.

When I'm home visiting family I go to the one on Barton Street, Just east of Highway 20 in Hamilton. Lots of yarn, and fabric too if you are a quilter.

After looking at the Len's Mill Store website, I will definitely visit Starsky's before going to Len's, so that my DH can nibble on goodies from Starsky's, waiting for me in the car, while I leisurely browse through Len's yarn section. Thanks Jessica-Jean for the link.
