new hours and a new person in the shop
Starting the week of September 22 I will be extending the store hours. I will be back in the store Tuesday evenings and will open on Sunday. And, what is really wonderful is that starting September 26th we will be open during the day starting at noon. Yeah!!
If you’re available on the 26th please drop by the store to welcome Melodie to the shop. Melodie is a retired teacher who has been knitting for over 15 years. She is an avid sock knitter and enjoys knitting lace and fair isle as well. Melodie and I spent some time on Sunday picking out some sock yarn that she is excited to knit up for the store. I thought her pattern looked complicated but she tells me it’s very easy. Come take a look and weigh in on the difficulty of this little project. And, if you want to try the pattern out yourself, I have created a sock cabinet and have it filled with Malabrigo and Fleece Artist. Earlier today I received shipping notification of my Sweet Georgia Tough Love sock so that will be in there too as soon as it arrives.
I had hoped to have a rug hooker working in the store on Tuesdays but I somehow deleted her email (please get in touch with me again if you’re reading this – we met at the annual and you contacted me at the end of August). Hopefully I’ll be able to sort that out soon and if so the store will open at noon on Tuesday as well.
So, just to sum things up as they stand right now, here are the new hours (starting September 22):
Monday – closed or by appointment or open for classes
Tuesday – 6pm -8pm
Wednesday – 6pm – 8pm
Thursday – 6pm- 8pm
Friday – 12pm 8pm
Saturday – 10am – 4pm
Sunday – 12pm – 4pm
And, as always, I might be able to open by appointment if these times don’t work for you.
With Melodie now at the store I may be able to have the store open on October 18th when I’m at the Woodstock Fleece Festival. However, I will still be closing for the Creative Festival since I intend to take some of my larger cabinets and all of the yarn that I can fit in the booth. And, Melodie wants to work at the show too so count on the store being closed Oct 23-26.
Hope to see you soon in the store – there’s been quite a few changes over the last few weeks.
