Greetings Fiber Fan,
As the first week post-shop proceeds, I wanted to thank all of you who helped with the closing. Whether you came in and purchased inventory or fixtures, helped move things out or just came by to say good bye you helped make the end of IYB as happy as its beginning. I left with a bit of inventory, some great memories, a whole lot of new fiber friends and not a single regret. Thanks to all of you who made that possible!
I also thought I’d share some of the adventures involved in moving a 1,000 sq. ft. shop to an 11 x 12 ft space! Plans to have that space ready by moving day didn’t quite come to fruition, so our foyer is full of yarn and our guest room is chock full of boxes. And of course, our cars are in the driveway as the garage is full of all of the paraphenalia that awaits final positioning in my studio. I also had a bit of a mishap on Monday when Eileen and I were moving final bits and pieces out of the shop and did something to my upper side that makes it hard to breathe or laugh. Urgent Care says my ribs are intact, so I’m just waiting impatiently to get back to full speed, but I did manage to finish painting the woodwork yesterday and will begin wallpapering later today to get our spare guest room ready to become my new workplace. Marty’s getting tired of the temporary office on the dining room table and the pooches just keep wandering around with confused looks on their faces. We’re all adjusting to a new reality and so far I seem to be the only one enjoying it!
Once I can get set up I will begin adding inventory to a new shop page on the web site so I can make room here for the new yarns that will be coming soon. If there was something in the shop that you regret not adding to your stash, here’s a second chance. If you’re interested in a particular item, drop me an email and I’ll let you know what I have left. I just need a few more days to get healthy and organized. I’ll also be posting the teaching schedule here on the web site once I make some commitments. I promise to get moving on that and will keep you updated here.
Headed home to MA for a week at the end of the month and have a lengthy list of yarn shops to visit. Been a while since I’ve been a customer so I’m looking forward to that and I’ll let you know how it goes being on the other side of the counter
Until next time take good care,
