Last month, I was driving up Route 96 in the Finger Lakes region of NY. And guess what I saw by the side of the road?
I had heard that Schaefer Yarns had been in the area, but I didn’t know that the owner opened an outlet after shutting closing her dyeing business.
So… I turned off the road (with my fabulously agreeable husband) to check it out.
Here is the outlet:
And here are the hours:
I suppose luck wasn’t on my side, because the shop wasn’t open. But, I did take a peek inside:
According to this news article I found, the outlet is leftover inventory, and it’s unclear if new stock is being added.
I can’t vouch for the yarn (or prices) of what’s inside… but what I can offer is directions! (since the address/directions are missing from the outlet’s webpage…)
From Ithaca, NY: drive north on 96 for about 20 minutes and turn left on Kelly’s Corner Road. Go a minute or two, and you’ll see a sign outside.
From I-90, drive south on 96 and turn right on Kelly’s Corner Road. Go a minute or two, and you’ll see a sign outside.
If you’re in the area during some lucky hours… then stop by for a visit!
