Due some interesting interpretations of what Crochet Friendly actually means, we on the CLF HQ Board on Ravelry.com came up with a criteria for rating LYS stores.
You now can go to the page http://www.thesecretsofyarn.com/crochetfriendlylys/lyslist.html and rate your local yarn store!
I will be making a page for the website with ratings given by people…Note: It’s really hard to rate most LYSes high or excellent in all categories because well, very few if any meet all of our criteria, BUT we have extra credit, and customer service has the most weight.
So come on down, make your voice known, be honest and proactive. Remember BE THE CHANGE!
