West Michigan Yarn Quest Review

Well, the West Michigan Yarn Quest is now over. And did we ever go on a quest for yarn this weekend! We made it to all 10 participating stores. Thursday night we headed south and shopped at Your Local Yarn Shop in Battle Creek, Lady Peddler in Hastings, and Henny's Yarn Shop in Caledonia. Then on Saturday we hit six stores including Country Needleworks in Jenison, Painted Trillium Yarns in Hudsonville, A Grand Skein in Grand Rapids, J.T. Stitchery in Rockford, then all the way up to The New Ewe in Newaygo, and finally Clever Ewe in Ada. We picked up the last shop on Sunday when we went to The Needlesmith in Grand Haven. Our favorite shops of all?  Henny's in Caledonia and Country Needleworks in Jenison. All-in-all we had a wonderful time, got a fun tour of West Michigan, found some new yarn stores, and got lots of goodies and great prices on quality yarn. Love!
Every store shared wonderful FREE patterns! We got:
  • Alexi Sweater and Scarf set
