Park City Utah, Yarn and Baskets and More

 Wasatch and Wool, located at Kimball Junction Shopping area.  1635 Redstone Center Drive.  I visit this yarn shop everytime I'm in Park City.  The staff is always fun, friendly, and helpful.  The shop is stuffed to the gills with lots of wonderful yarn.
The inventory is phenomenal.  It's a small shop, but that hasn't stopped them from having lots of variety in types and prices of yarn, as well as colors.  Sometimes inventory at smaller shops is limited; not here at Wasatch and Wool.

We've been coming to Park City every summer now for 10 years, and as soon as I found out I could hope the city bus for FREE and get to this yarn store, I've taken advantage of that.  Often hubby is golfing during the day.  I can get where I'm going either on foot or by bus so his having the car doesn't slow me down at all.  Our daughter often is able to travel with us and she too has enjoyed this shop and remarked about what a wonderful inventory they had.


Park City Silly Sunday, always a treat.  It's a fun fair, with music and food right on Main Street every Sunday in the Summer.  I look forward to it and enjoy all the artist; but was really excited this year to get to spend time talking to Betty.  The hand made baskets and purses are fantastic.  They're all made by women in Africa and support women in Africa.  The workmanship of each piece is extraordinary.  I had a hard time making my selections because everything is so pretty and colorful.  AND you like supporting something so worthwhile.  The Website is AfricanEverything.com  MaendeleoImports@gmail.com.  The business card says contact #BasketMary.  I hope to see Mary again next year and plan to bring an extra piece of luggage so I can get one of the larger baskets on the plane with me.


We stay at The Marriott Summit Watch while there in Park City, right on Main Street.  I've posted often here with pictures of the area and our lodgings, but this year we had something special! (click that link to see some of the posts about Park City)

It's a really great spot in the summer, fishing, hiking, golfing, art festivals, free bus and a great yarn shop!

  1. Wow that's a high in story indeed. I don't know how to knit or chrochet. I don't have a crafty bean in my body. Thanks for visiting me and leaving me a comment. Happy Saturday. 😎

  3. That reminds me of a yarn store in Chicago. I'm like Sandee, but enjoyed looking around with my talented friend. That elephant is adorable, and this sounds like a neat destination. And thanks for visiting me. You've really been to Bucyrus? That's way too cool. Would be neat to meet up some year, God willing. Take care!

  4. I went to Park City once, while staying with my sister near SLC. All I saw was sundance and Robert Redford in a slightly pink suit introducing the musicians! Fun trips girl! I had a good time looking around your blog and hearing your adventures. LeeAnna at not afraid of color
