There are still some good ones out there. A great one just opened in Boynton Beach Florida.
I'm from a west suburb and looking at Google maps, 515 La Grange Rd is just south of 47th St.

I am from the south suburbs myself, and would like to visit this shop.
LaGrange does not follow the "Gold Standard" of Chicago's street numbering...would you be so kind as to provide a cross street that would help me find it?
Thanks, enjoy your day.
Today I went to a yarn shop located in LaGrange Il to purchase a set of needles. I was looking at yarn to use for preemie hats for a NICU. After a conversation with the women who was helping me, they brought out 4 beautiful blankets to add to my donations. I could not believe the generosity of this shop owner. I can't let this go unnoticed in the too often callous world. If you are ever in LaGrange Il, visit this wonderful shop.
Speaks volume!!! What is the name of the shop, please?
Nice to hear of their generosity. Too far for me, glad others are patronizing.
So happy to see this good report on my favorite yarn store. The folks there are friendly and encouraging, and they have a lovely yarn selection. Right in my neighborhood, too!

I also like to patronize LYS. The one In Piyalup is closing, I heard. That is so sad.
Most people are truly good at heart. the funny part is most of them don't know it.
That lys has got it goin' on! Kudos to them!
I too like to patronize my LYS. Spinnin'Yarns in Griffith Indiana. The owner is so helpful and there are knitting groups all the time! She also has classes and does spinning and weaving. the yarns are great, and she can order anything that you want if it's not already in stock. 😍
Our LYS in Lafayette, LA also generously supports local causes. In a recent initiative our local food bank executive director (Food Net of Acadiana) challenged organizations/groups to donate 100 cans of protein rich food and our LYS participated. LYS owners announced that for a can of food donated at their shop there would be a 5% shopping discount. As knitters came but forgot their cans the shop owners allowed the shoppers to purchase a can from a case they (LYS owners) had bought and donate it back to them to give to Food Net's challenge and thus be able to get their 5% discount. I thought this to be very clever and generous solution thus making it a win-win situation.
The name of the yarn shop is "Idea Studio Yarn".
Whenever I go on vacation, one of the first things I do is get the LYS locator hopping. I'm a true believer in supporting this industry. Can't always make a purchase in every shop, but stop at as many as I can to see the knitted items displayed, yarn lines featured, and small talk with owners about their towns. So glad my husband puts up with me and my hobby.
The Idea Studio is located north of Route 34 (Ogden AV) and south of 31st st. Their phone # is 708 352 1789. I'm sure they can direct you. Great shop. Enjoy.
