I think I found Heaven and it’s in the Annapolis Valley

A few girlfriends and I went on a cottage weekend a few weeks ago in South Milford, NS. The weekend was absolutely perfect and was topped off by a stop at Gaspereau Valley Fibres.

When I walked in, my mouth dropped. I could have easily spent hours in the shop looking and touching every skein of yarn but my limited budget, I had to hold back.

They even had a cat! I may have spent a decent amount of time just showering this friendly little guy with attention.

Bathtubs full of yarn! They pretty much had everything you could possibly want in a LYS…except…they had a clear dislike of crocheters. Not a hook or pattern in sight and even their website says ” full service yarn store and offers classes in knitting, spinning, weaving, felting, weekly knitters’ group and many special events”….I’m sorry…but a “full service yarn store” should include products for crocheters too. We’re not the red-headed stepchild of the fibre arts world!
