I'm in Suburbiaville in Chesterfield County. I agree with you F-burg area people, though, that the Knitting Cottage is darling! I've only been once, but I will definitely go back. The owner (Nancy??) could not have been more welcoming.

Welcome truble2301 Great to see you here.
I agree the Knitting Cottage is a great place.
To much going on right now in my life to get down there. It is on my wish list to get there.

You know what I live literally 5 min away from the Yarn Shop and have never been. Is it any good? The owner scared me in her last shop so I have avoided it.
Holly, what do you mean she scared you? She wasn't there when I went in. A gentleman I believe to be her husband maybe was the only person working. It is not a large shop, but they had a lot of good stuff there.

Hi all! I'm in the Greater Richmond area!! I have a few friends that knit and we try to get out in public at least once every other month and knit, eat and gossip.

That is weird! I am on there, but I haven't had time to put much up there right now. After Christmas is my goal And it is even doubly weirder that I actually go by a different user name there! lol

Nancy is right! She is a sweet lady, everyone there is so helpful--it is where I learned to knit

Hi
Just thought I would introduce myself. I'm also from Virginia - Danville, which is in the south-central area just above the NC border.

Glad to meet everyone!

Julie - I am also Nana to 2 granddaughters.

Everyone - Here in Danville there are no good yarn shops. I have been to a couple in Greensboro, NC, but tell me of more. Those of you in or near Richmond, Roanoke or Lynchburg - any good ones there?

I did hear there are good ones in Charlottesville.

I travel to Norfolk quite often as my son lives there so do you know of any in that area? I did find some on Mapmuse but wonder what you think of them.

Thanks!

Personally not a huge fan of the ones in C-ville. IMHO they are not very welcoming and warm. I have been to both with questions regarding a project and neither would answer my questions without charging me. One offered to order a specific color yarn for me (a brand they carry) and never did and the other got put out with me when I didn't take her suggestion for yarn.
We used to have an awesome one in Gordonsville, but she closed : (
