In an effort to help our members find cool stuff to play with, we're checking out some of the local yarn stores. In no particular order:

10726 E. State Hwy 76
Forsyth, MO 65653
Sharon Betz
The Yarn Diva

Not all that far from Springfield; you can come at it from the non-Branson end of 76, and avoid all the traffic. Lovely yarns, reasonable prices, very cute if suspicious canine attendant.... ;D They have a sort of open house thing on Wednesday afternoons, where anyone's welcome to come sit, and do yer yarn thang, whatever that is, knit, crochet, spin, whatever. We'll probably be field-tripping here in the future!


One City Market
214 Beatie
Rogersville, MO 65742
Lisa Ellison

Just a few minutes' drive from Springfield -- and these days, the shorter the trip, the less gas you waste, and the more cash you have for buying! -- One City Market carries a great selection of fingering weight yarn, also called sock weight yarn. They've also got spinning wheels and all the accoutrements of spinning, including instruction! Wood knitting needles and hooks, natural-fiber yarns and threads, and often, candy sitting right out on the table, available to all.... It's a great store. Really. Go there. Tell 'em Clara sent you -- I promise they won't hold it against you.


The Needle Niche
114 E. 4th St.
Joplin, MO 64801

A little far afield, maybe, but this shop carries a great selection of yarns: bamboo, soy, silk, cotton, organic cotton, mohair, merino, and lots more. Lots of sock-weight yarn! The hours are the most restricted of any store we've visited so far: Monday-Friday 10-5. We were told they may be open on Saturdays now that the weather's cooling a bit (we went on 7 September 2007), and the lady who was working then told us she'd cheerfully stay open late, or come in on Saturday, should we choose to field-trip there. She also recommended a nearby restaurant, the Red Onion, as having good food at reasonable prices....
