Yarn Shops

Can't Wait for an Event to See My Yarn?

You Don't Have to!

My yarn is available year round at a few small yarn shops in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and one in Maryland where you can touch and feel my yarn - as well as other yarns and knitting supplies. 


Labeled as "Suzy the Shepherdess Yarn," the yarn in these shops is the same yarn sold on this site and at my events.

  • All That Fiber Studio at 111 S. Main Street in Stockton, Illinois.  Located above Main Street Parties in downtown Stockton, All That Fiber Stuido specializes in locally grown & processed natural fibers for handspinners, felters, knitters, crocheters, and fiber artists.  Visit their facebook page for store hours.
  • Wall of Yarn at 14 W. Stephenson Street in Freeport, Illinois.  Wall of Yarn in downtown Freeport provides a wide range of yarns and accessories for knitting and crocheting, plus classes.  They also have open sessions where people can come and enjoy refreshments and knit, crochet or do any other activity relating to fiber with others from the community - always fun.  Visit their facebook page for store hours. 
  • Esther's Place at 201 W. Galena Street (Route 30), Big Rock, Illinois.  Esther's Place is in Big Rock, a tiny town you've never heard of that's just west of the western Chicago suburbs, about a half hour west of Aurora and Naperville.  Esther's Place carries my yarn and my pattern kits.  Open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm.  All of the yarn at Esther's Place is from Illinois sheep.
  • Mother of Purl (The Coppersmith's Wife), was in New Hampton, Iowa and moving soon to Michigan.  They used to be a regular at historical events in Northern Illinois - now they have a perment location.  In addition to my yarn, they also have patterns, needles and spinning supplies.  
  • Two Rivers Yarns at 17 West Potomac in downtown Brunswick, Maryland.  Two Rivers Yarns offers yarn and classes of all sorts, and is just a few miles from the Antietam Battlefield!  They carry my yarn and my pattern kits.  Hours change seasonally, so check their website before driving out.
