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!
That's wonderful! I will put them on my list of places to visit as we travel. Thank you for sharing.Maggieber said:The Shop is called: The Idea Studio

They have wonderful yarn, beads, and buttons. Large work area as well. Very nice shop. I understand 7 less yarn shops on Chicago area yarn crawl this year. Very sad.
Many thanks, Maggieber, that just about pin-points it for me.Maggieber said: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.
Kudos to this shopkeeper! I don't think you'd get that response from Joann or Michaels. . . which also serve a purpose. But you won't get the same friendly greeting there as you would from a great LYS.Maggieber said: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.
