For some reason the antique mall was closed when I stopped by. No sign. No explanation. I can only hope.
I did, however, spot a billboard along the highway for a yarn store in St. Elmo, IL. I pulled off the highway and without any additional signs, just followed my instincts to the downtown business district. Given the location and demographics, Twisted Stitches has to perform a delicate balancing act.
There was a bit of Lion Brand, a bit of Red Heart, some Patons and Plymouth, but also some Trendsetter.
In the back, a group of women were meeting for a stitch and bitch, so I think Twisted Stitches has managed to meet the needs of her community.
Ever hopeful, I bought myself yet another pom pom maker.
