There was a spacious room in back fitted out for classes and groups, a couch and newspapers for waiting partners, and a complete selection of Sublime yarns--hooray! I picked up some Sublime (of course) and this book,
because if I can't live in Woodbridge, I think Little Cake would have to be my next choice!
