For you yarn addicts who live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, check out our favorite local yarn store, Jennings Street Yarns. Located on a sleepy street corner South of downtown Fort Worth, this unassuming storefront harbors everything a fiber enthusiast needs to fill their stash. Needles, hooks, oh so many gorgeously delicious yarns, pattern booklets, classes and accessories. Did I mention the yarn? Walking into the shop is like strolling through a rainbow – hundreds of skeins are displayed by color palette, as opposed to brand or weight.
Owner Linda Lucente recommends choosing something special from her extensive collection of sock yarns or signing up for one of a huge variety of classes, such as the Rambling Rows Sweater class starting in September. Linda’s business philosophy is “you really have to take care of your customers” which definitely shows through in extra perks she offers, such as rolling loose hanks into ready-to-use balls at point of purchase. What a time saver!
Quality doesn’t come cheap, so this shop may leave you wishing you had won the lottery so you could buy every skein, but it is well worth the visit to find prized treasures.
