CRAFT SHOP: Spin some yarn

A text from a friend traveling in Litchfield County changed my knitting and crocheting life when she discovered Stars Hollow Yarns in New Preston and told me I had to check it out. Inspired by the fictional Connecticut community created in the Gilmore Girls TV show, this local yarn shop is a yarnie’s dream come true. Not only is the yarn far beyond the run-of-the-mill offerings commonly found in other shops, but it’s also purchased with a mission in mind. Owner Lisa Clark sells sustainable yarns and accessories with a focus on those created by small business owners, and she powers her little shop with electricity generated from all renewable energy sources. She also supports local nonprofits from her Shop, Donate, Save program, in which shoppers who donate immediately get 10 percent off their purchase. Feel good and get great yarn at the same time. — J.
