Getting Crafty at MLA

Knitting is hot! So, where to go in Philadelphia for the best yarn and needlework supplies? There are three well known yarn shops (in order of distance from the Marriot):
Rosie's Yarn Cellar
2017 Locust Street
215-977-9276
http://www.rosiesyarncellar.com/
Loop
1914 South Street
877.893.9939 215.893.9939

Sophie's Yarns
713 S. 4th. Street
215-925-KNIT
http://www.sophiesyarns.com/

Unfortunately for other types of needleworkers there are not any shops nearby in Philadelphia. You have to travel to the suburbs or New Jersey.
