Circle of Stitches is a beautiful and welcoming yarn shop in Salem, MA. The shop has wonderful lighting, beautiful views, and a cozy inviting environ. I visited recently and so enjoyed viewing the shop, meeting the owner, Ana Campos, and talking with two women who were sitting and knitting. Anna is the talented dyer and owner of Toil and Trouble yarns. Her colors are inspired by literature, they are stunning and, for me, brought on some tremors and heavy breathing as I tried to choose just two. I urge you to plan a trip to the shop, peruse the stock, and plan to walk away with a new project in your hands.

The shop carries Melissa Jean hand made ceramic buttons, needles and project bags, notions and books. Ana offers classes to small groups, and has plans in September for an exciting weaving class called Random Weaving, taught by Harriet Goodall. Harriet Goodall is an Australian weaver, you might know her work from the Ravelry Squam Retreat, her large heart shape form was lit with twinkle lights.
