I really wish we had something like there where I live. Kind of a fun destination where you can relax and spend some time.

It is odd that Arlington has only one yarn shop. there is only one bead shop too that I know of. When I go home to Oregon to visit, I can find both yarn and bead shops all over the place.

I order a lot of yarn from Etsy.com from the people who actually spin and dye it. It is nice though to go to a good yarn store and drool over the fabulous fibers and textures!

That is odd that Arlington would have only one such store. There is so much farming and harvesting all through Texas, that I would think a fiber industry would be present - throughout the State! I remember reading someplace about the number of sheep farms in different states, and Texas was very high on the list. With all of those farms, I would think some local producers would want to sell in state at places like LYS, in turn creating more of a market.
Perhaps this could be a good business idea for someone in Arlington.
the stores all of Oregon are a great example of what I am talking about here.

Yes, you're right. I wonder why nobody has thought of creating such a store. Or even a co-op type of store from various Texas artisans. I would certainly shop there.

In southern Oregon, I can buy alpaca yarn, for instance, which is from alpaca ranches in the local area.

LYS stands for Local yarn store. It would be a locally owned, small business as compared to many of the mass retail box stores such as Jo-Anns, Hobby Lobby or even Wal-Mart.
