88 Stitches in Langley is one of our bag pick-up locations this year. It is the home of the indie line of yarn, Sweet Fiber, as well as designer Judy Marples. They carry a wide selection of yarns–different fibres, varying prices. They’ve got Handmaiden and Malabrigo, Berroco and Cascade, Madeline Tosh and Sweet Georgia. There’s sock yarn, baby yarn, Rowan yarn for colourwork, and with lots of different colours.
Sue, the owner, says that her store is known as the “store with a sweater’s worth of yarn”–they usually have a sweater’s worth of each yarn in the colours they carry, so you don’t have to track down more elsewhere.
Notions…Chiao Goo, Addi, Clover, and Aero needles; crochet hooks; needle-felting tools; buttons; yarn bowls; ball winders; books. There’s a nice selection available.
88 Stitches will be hosting a book signing/trunk show of Tin Can Knits‘ new book, Pacific Knits, on the 22nd, in addition to offering some prize draws. Check them out! 88 Stitches, 21183 88 Avenue East #602 Langley, BC V1M 2G5.
