On my recent visit to Bozeman, MT I visited both yarn shops in the downtown area. This one, Stix, is a total surprise. It would be easy to miss if you didn't see the yarn-bombed basement-stair entry along a side street. You think you are entering a hole-in-the-wall, but the inside space goes on and on around corners into new rooms. The selection is wide, varied and high quality. There are a few local lines available, including a run of patterns called Weezie Wear Designs. There is plenty of comfy seating and even a coffee corner. I never wanted to leave. Yes, I bought stuff.
