I have a friend that lives in Schaumburg. Don't get to see here much because I live in Indiana.

I'm near Schaumburg! About 30 miles west of Chicago. I find it hard to believe there are so few of us on this great board.

I recently moved back to IL from MN. I left a town with 2 LYS and I am having a hard time finding one in my area. I'm out near Aurora now. Any favorites someone can recommend?

Here's a list of LYS's in Illinois http://www.sweaterbabe.com/directoryIL.htm

 

I didn't know there was one in Harvard. I say it's time for a field trip!

 

The one I like is near Marengo, called "The Fold". It's a great store, and they like both knitters and crocheters! So much to choose from. Yarns, patterns, hooks, needles, raw wool for spinning and so much more. It's worth the drive.

Just a note here to my fellow Illinoisians.

 

Come out to the 2nd Annual Fiber and Folk Art Fair in Beautiful Crystal Lake,IL in July.

 

check out the link in my signature for more information. They moved it to the McHenry County College this year so that they can have access to nice, air conditioned classrooms.

 

It will be awesome.

 

If you need any information, please pm me and I will be glad to help you out. I can't wait. It should be a lot of fun! Last year, they had four huge tents of vendors, classes, art gallery, food court, beer garden and more. It was fantastic. And I was glad they could do it again this year.

 

Come on out, everyone. It will be worth the drive!

 

:manyheart

We have the Village Square Mall, which is lost alot of businesses. Walmart has gotten bigger, Menards, Sears, Kmart is still around. Rural King, got a Kohls last year. Lots of truck stops, bars, resturaunts, gas stations, hotels. Even got a theatre, The Rosebud, which is bringing in a few famous people. Here a while back we had Ron White the comedian, this month Stix is going to be here.
