Midwest Living Review

Tina King
Quality yarns and ribbons are the stars at this colorful shop near Main Street.

Stepping inside Florilegium is like walking into a beautiful, colorful spring garden with fine yarns substituted for the flowers. It is a yarn and ribbon-lover's paradise.Even if you're not into needlecrafts, the displays here are eye candy begging to be touched. Fluffy yarns in vibrant colors are balled into vintage washtubs and wire baskets. Twisted skeins of yarn the good stuff hang from walls among finished projects. Spools of ribbon are unrolled just enough to tempt customers with adorable patterns. Shelves of apothecary-style jars hold still more pretty fibers. The store also carries its own line of hand-dyed silk ribbon, with examples displayed for its artful uses. You'll also find antique buttons, laces and needlepoint kits displayed throughout a dcor that includes for-sale antiques. If you want to sit and browse through the pattern books or start a project among friends, the store offers a pretty table and chairs spot to do so. Creative souls inclined toward needlework will love this place.
