We recently relocated from Seattle--where I only THOUGHT I was spoiled by the needlecraft options. The Tinsmith's Wife is a haven, a trove, a marvelous find in sweet Comfort. Easily my all-time favorite. 5 stars might not be enough.
Hands-down one of the most delightful shops I've ever been to. My sweet partner took me on a mini yarn crawl during my visit to the area, and I was in heaven with all the variety of yarn and color. Please never change, y'all. I am very much looking forward to visiting again in January!
