Flying Fibers is a shop with a fun name, a huge selection, a great location, and a knowledgeable and kind staff. When my daughter and I walked in the doors I had to stand motionless at the entryway for a few moments just to take in all the beauty and cleanliness of the shop.
The store is laid out perfectly and offers a large assortment of locally hand dyed yarns and roving of all kinds. In the center of the shop there are wheels and looms situated around an inviting leather sofa that beckons to take a seat and browse a great pattern book for your next project.
The prices are spot on – and I can assure of this because I have bought directly from some of the brands they carry. I was especially excited to see that they carried my favorite Pennsylvania made yarn – Perfection by Kramer
While the beauty, cleanliness, and selection are all great reasons to stop by this shop, my favorite part – and the reason why I would highly recommend it – is because of the lovely store manager I had the opportunity to meet – Ellen. Ellen was very friendly and knowledgeable and was more than happy to offer me special order services that are hard to come by. She told me all about the spinning classes she teaches (which are offered at a great price) and she said when you take her class you even get to keep the drop spindle you learn on!
After soaking in all the goodness the shop had to offer Little Bo Peep and I popped over to the cafe right next door and enjoyed an iced coffee for mom and a cupcake for the little one. The two being located so close to each other is a special bonus. Coffee, chocolate, and yarn all in one spot? Now that’s a Bo Peep kind of day!
