I don’t knit, or crochet, but my mother and aunts do. It’s a talent that has eluded me and my type “A” personality. A couple of weeks ago, I found myself in Montrose for lunch with my husband’s aunt. She too knits and we walked into Needle in a Haystack. It’s a knitter’s paradise.
Established in Montrose in 1973, the shop offers, everything for the needle worker including knitting, crochet, needlepoint, and cross stitch supplies. On Tuesdays and Fridays from 11 AM – 1 PM, they have a group class, bring your project and get help. Sit with like minded crafters. $15.00 per class looks like a nice way to spend a couple of hours. Maybe a couple of prepaid classes would be a nice gift idea for Mom.
