Acorn is a delightful shop and staff! Very helpful nice selection of high quality yarns and gadgets for the knitter. I met Janet and she was a delight, had some great giggles with her, by the time I got home she had already added me to her "friends" on Ravelry.com If I ever go to Seattle again I am definitely going to visit this shop.

Very nice people, nice and organized and if you are into tea they have it.

The Weaving Works

If you are a "spinner" this shop is a must. Previous to this trip I only spin around my own axes but I am now a proud owner of 3 drop spindles and lots of roving to spin. I'll let you know how that goes.
