Fall is crazy
So a week ago I wrote and mentioned that Melodie would be starting this Friday. Well, that’s changed. Apparently our parking lot will be paved starting this Friday and I didn’t want Melodie’s introduction to the store to be an overwhelming stench of new pavement (I actually love that smell). Also, I’m not sure what access to the store will be like but I do know that parking will be non-existent. So I’ve asked Melodie to start October 3rd instead. I will open in the evening if I’m able to get to the door.
Also, as noted in the subject line of this post, fall is a crazy time for shows, events, festivals and hook-ins. I am going to be closing the store from time to time to go to these events. I’m sure I can get Melodie to cover some of them but for the bigger ones the store will be empty because I will be taking as much as I can so there’s no sense in opening.
Here’s what I’ve got planned over the next 6 weeks:
October 4th I will be up near Barrie for R.U.G – traditional rug hooking hook-in
October 7th The Gathering at Etobicoke Rug Hooking Guild
October 18th – Woodstock Fleece Festival – all kinds of fibre arts and I hear there is a wonderful Farmers Market in the morning.
October 24-26 – Creativ Festival – HUGE fibre/craft event (come in to the store for a booklet and remind me to show you how to get $2 off admission).
November 1 – Kitchener Waterloo Rug Hooking Guild Hook In.
I will try to keep the store open during all of the above other than the Creativ Festival. I will be hiring movers to take some of the cabinets and all of the yarn and rug hooking supplies downtown so there will be nothing left in the store to purchase.
I will update this blog later on when I can confirm if I’ll be open or not during the above shows. In the meantime though, it’s always best to call before you come especially if you’re travelling quite a distance.
