I'm a new/old knitter... meaning, I used to knit quite a bit, then children came along and now i have time to rekindle this hobby. I've made 7 felted bags for christmas gifts and am now wanting to make my first pair of socks!
I used to was live there, but moved a few months ago. Check out Rae's Yarn Boutique in Frandor. She has a sit n stitch night, maybe still on Thursdays, or Sunday afternoons. There's a website too http://www.raesyarnboutique.com/
And her blog.
I'm living over in the SW corner of Michigan these days, but my mom still lives in Dimondale. Last weekend when I visited her, I stopped into Threadbear Fiber Arts Studio for the first time. WOW! Lot's of wonderful yarn. It's located at 319 S. Waverly (between W. Michigan Ave and St. Joe Hwy). I drove by it 3 times! It's right next door to the Quilt Depot whose signs you CAN see from the road! They are open 363 days a year - closed only on Christmas and Thanksgiving.
