Karla Krafts

This is where I log craft projects, ideas, products, materials and sources including links. I'll also document sources of inspiration. I love crafts, including knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, stained glass crafting and others. My specialties were knitted baby caps and glycerin soaps I call "Gemsoaps." Now, I'm into embroidery and beading.

Another Grand Discovery!




I was searching for Lily Sugar and Cream yarn to complete a project, and I remembered that Peaches & Creme yarns are made in America, somewhere in the South. I searched and sure enough, they are made in Old Fort, NC! (That's near Asheville, if you're not a local.)




I found their website: http://elmore-pisgah.com/ and you can order straight from it. Be sure and read their "about us" page. Additionally, they make Honeysuckle and America's Best yarns and crochet threads. They also have an outlet store in Old Fort. I'll be shopping with them in the future! Support America!!!!



(Bernat owns Lily Sugar & Cream. Their yarns are made in Canada. I don't feel too bad about shopping with neighbors. The Canadians did free the Iran hostages for us, but I am telling my age!)

Hi Karla,

Thanks for this link. I prefer natural fibers, and I've always believed in buying local or in our own country whenever possible!
