Concepts in Yarn & Needlepoint

Located in Sunny Southern, else?! I used to visit this store when it was over on PCH but that was a long time ago.....
24520 Hawthorne Blvd, #100 Torrance, CA

It is a fully stocked store, with no prices marked, but full of yarns yarns and more yarns! I have to say that I was overwhelmed when I walked in....and they were having a needlepoint class/get-together while I was visiting!

I loved all the rich colors, and cool textures. They had things organized by style and weight, "I think..." I saw some yummy yarns, and wonderful colors!

Sock weight, novelty yarns, worsted, bulky etc...

LOTS of Samples! I have another post of samples that I saw in the store..(see tomorrow's posting)
I have to say, though, as I walked through the store...and I was there for at least 1/2 hour, that I didn't get anyone to say a word to me....except that as I was reaching to see a yarn, and lady who worked there was irritably asking me if I wanted to close the yarn swift that she was "using" (not) and if I wanted it out of the way that she would 'get to it'. I am not going to say anything else except it did have some lovely yarns...!!!
