The only one I'm familiar with is Fiber Factory in downtown Mesa, but it's a winner! Here's a link to their site with info and directions:

http://www.fiberfactory.com/index.html

It's an hour's drive from where I usually stay when I'm there and well worth it. Also, downtown Mesa has been made into a very nice destination, Main Street has antique shops, nice little cafes, specialty paper and scrapbooking stores, and a nice performing arts center so there's lots to see there beside the yarn shop.

Both not the hugest places in the world... and I never got to go to any others... But both places had nice things and were very nice to talk too!
Both are located in strip malls that are kind of situated shall we say in a more landscaped mode than your standard strip mall. Kind of "off the beatin path" so to speak.
