I admit that I could barely contain my excitement when we arrived at the store. It was absolutely amazing! WEBS offers a tremendous discount on purchases over $60, and again over $120. We had no trouble meeting those goals. The staff was just wonderful - helpful, cheerful - just great! I somehow did not get any pictures of the huge room devoted to looms and spinning wheels - but they have it all.

|My basket is not as full as it could have been! 10 skeins that I needed of the same dye lot were out of stock and back-ordered - they will be shipped to my house.|
Make no mistake however, the very best part of the trip was getting together with my dear friends - laughing, eating, sharing book recommendations, drinking wine, and planning for another trip. It was, as they say, "priceless".
A couple of tips if you should plan a trip to WEBS:
1. Look over their website thoroughly - you can see all of the yarns available and can even order ahead of time and they will have it waiting for you when you arrive.
2. Go with projects in mind. I did this - as did the others. It is really overwhelming and you could easily leave without purchasing anything, or leave with more than you will know what to do with.
3. Feel free to ask for their help - the staff is amazing. We had the help of a young man, whose name tag said "Young Man", because that is what most of the older shoppers called him anyhow!

What a trip! Thank you ladies!!
