Um some people are desperate for business and figure if they bad mouth the competition, they will bring people their way. There are two yarn stores in my town. My favorite one never bad mouths any one. If you are using Red Heart, you are welcome to come on in and learn. She figures you will learn as you grow as a knitter. The other store is not as nice. And when people ask me about the other store, I always preface it by saying that 'this is my opinion. I don't like that she only carries colors she likes. And that I can rarely find a sweater's worth of yarn there. ' But I always add, that you might find what you are looking for there. When I need needles, I will call them and see if they have what I am looking for. (But they rarely do.)

I just had two bad online experiences with two different vendors. One resulted in me having to file a complaint with PayPal and the USPS to get answers. But I will not name them. Okay some one did ask me who in a private message and I told her. But I will not publicly name them. I like to support indie dyers and shops. But I am being a bit more picky about who I support now.

Some of my favorite indie dyers are Canadians for some reason though.....


Thank you Mia. You're so nice :) Canadians are much more careful about saying mean things...not that we don't but maybe the "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say it" permeates here more? I'm not sure what it is as I can find super nice people on both sides of the border and the same for the not nice ones too.


Your Milkweed is nice & the yarn looks gorgeous. I do agree with you that we should be positive & not be mean & this world will be a better place to live in. Have a good weekend too!


Thanks Ann :) You're so nice! Have a fabulous weekend too :)
