We at the CLF believe that we need to put our money where our mouth is! That's right, if someone IS crochet friendly, give them your business!
This is the current list of Crochet Friendly LYS as compiled by our dear member and moderator Smurf/Alison! She's a gem and I owe her much thanks for her organisational skills!
All recommendations here have been made by members of the Crochet Liberation Front!

ABOUT THE CLF
- Fearless Leader of the CLF
- Everywhere, No where
- I started the CLF as a joke on Ravelry, back in July of 2007. The joke was on me, we're a real group, that seeks to liberate ourselves from stereo types about our craft and ourselves. Other than being called "Fearless Leader", I'm a designer, mother, editor, wife, hand spinner, yarn addict, incessant reader, and over all geek in the coolest of geeky ways.
