Recently I found myself with a knitting emergency: I had lost my darning needles! With no way to complete my knitting project I jumped in my car and headed straight down to Depth of Field. With its subtle signage and unusual name, Depth of Field is easy to walk by. But, passerbys who stop in are treated to a treasure trove of textile goodies. Part craft store, part furniture store, Depth of Field has a little bit of everything.

When I first walked in I was immediately drawn to the comfortable looking futons and array of futon covers. Every color and pattern imaginable! Reminding myself that I was there to buy needles and NOT furniture, I took a walk through a doorway into the next room where I was met with craft heaven! Rows and rows of colorful yarns covered the walls. Darning needles, stitch markers, crochet hooks – you name it, they had it. And don’t be intimidated if you’re a newcomer to the textile arts. Whether you’re pro-level or just beginning, all are welcome and the helpful staff will offer assistance with any question you have.

After perusing the thoughtful selection of yarns and accessories, I somehow resisted buying everything in sight and paid for just the needles I needed, knowing that I’ll definitely be returning in the future to buy more yarn for future projects. And maybe a futon too.
