Welcome to Ben & Flo’s!

Ben and Flo's

Ben & Flo’s is situated in a 130-year-old Victorian painted lady, located in uptown Mount Vernon, Iowa. We specialize in luxurious fibers, creative patterns and the tools needed to create them.

Our offerings are unique to the region and will make your project a joy to create. Fibers range from merino wools, blends of alpaca, cashmere, cottons and silks, to bamboo and pearls—yes, pearls. It’s all here.

Take your time at Ben & Flo’s. Admire the architecture of the marvelous building, have a cup of tea, join friends on one of the porches for a stitching session, or sign up for a class to build your skills.

While you’re here, check out owner Marty Mitchell’s paintings, and other art offerings by regional artists. Things change often as new art pieces arrive, each piece an unusual, one-of-a-kind wonder. So visit often for a unique and fun experience.

And be sure you leave time to pet the friendly kitties the shop is named for, Ben & Flo.
