So much happening

Well, we’re off to a running start to what I call ‘Knitting Season’.  Last weekend we had two lovely groups from the TTC Knitalong come to the store.  It was wonderful to have the store full of such enthusiastic knitters.  Some were interested in rug hooking and so I’ve decided to have a beginner rug hooking class next Sunday August 30th from 10am-1pm.  We will also be holding another ever popular thrum mitten class later in October.  If you’re interested in this please email me early to get on the class list.  We typically sell out and the timing of this class makes it perfect to make a very special person a pair of very warm mitts this year. Check our events page for more upcoming shows but here are a few in the next couple of months: Aug 30 – beginning rug hooking class at Wool-Gathering Sept 12 – KW Knitters Fair in Kitchener Sept 26 – Powassan Hook In and London Hook In (I haven’t figured out the logistics of this yet…..) Oct 3 – R.U.G – Simcoe County Museum Oct 6 – The Gathering (rug hooking) at Neilson Park Oct 15-17 – Creative Festival – North Convention Center downtown Toronto Oct 17 – Woodstock Fleece Festival (again I need to figure out logistics….) Oct 26 – thrum mitten class at Wool-Gathering   Check back often for updates.  As shows, events and classes get firmed up I will post the info here. Take care –...

It’s been way too long…..

It seems that I can accomplish way more when I’m busy than I can when I actually have time.  I’m not sure why that is but I will blame it on my need to feel busy and if I’m not, then I put things off to create that business.  Or, you could just call it stupidity…. As many of you know I lost my job this past spring and had hoped to do loads of store stuff before I found another job.  I didn’t think it would take me this long to find a job but it has.  So if my plan worked out then everything to do with the store should be sorted out by now.  Not true.  In fact, I have forgotten where on this website I have hidden the hours so I’m not able to change them.  I’ve looked at everything and can’t find the little nook or cranny that holds that information.  The fact that I still remember my password is a major accomplishment but still, what good is it if I can’t remember where the information I need to change is kept? On the bright side, I was able to update the events pa and althogeugh there are a few more to add later on as they are confirmed, there are enough there that you can start planning your fall visits.  It’s going to be a very busy fall and I’m starting to order some of the items I think I’ll need.  Inventory will change quickly over the next few months so drop by often to see the new items. I’m off to try to find that little nook or cranny again so will sign off here.  I hope to get back soon….....
