Needle Arts of Georgetown
Berroco. Skacel. Louet. These aren't the members of a European pop trio. Rather, they're just three of the many yarn suppliers that Needle Arts of Georgetown carries. And the shop doesn't just carry the goods of various suppliers—it also makes use of them, even knitting helmet liners for troops overseas. Shoppers can get in on the activities, taking classes to learn how to create sweaters, scarves, and felt bags. They can also peruse the ample supplies of yarn for specific textures and colors for their projects.
