Lately, I have been buying yarns from Jean Jezior and her Yarns and More Yahoo group! You'll see the link on the right under "Great Sites to See". Well, it's not really a site, it's a group. Jean has great connections that gets us GREAT prices on Lion, Patons, Red Heart, Moda Dea, Caron, Bernat, some SWTC, etc. She can get notions, books, yarn swifts (hmmm?), pillow forms, purse hardware, hooks, mill end yarns, threads, etc. Usually, you have to order yarns in bags of 3 skeins, but that's what the "group" part in Yahoo "Group" is for. If you only want 2, and there is someone else out there who only wants 1, then you both get what you need.
Jean keeps a database for each order where you can enter in your own order! You know what you are getting and when she will place the order for the "group". Then she ships it out to each individual in a very efficient way! It's like being in an online LYS!
To become part of the "group" or to get more information, go to the link on the right of this blog page. When you "apply" to be part of the group, or to just get more info, tell Jean that you heard about her here at GoCrochet.
I have ordered from her several times now, and I've been very pleased with the prices, service, and accessibility of Jean for questions.
I ordered my Lion Organic Cotton from Yarns and More, and I ordered Mary Jane Hall's "Positively Crochet" book too, among several other items!
