The Countdown is On!

Only 20 days left before I get to officially move into Rosehaven Yarn Shop! Linda and I are spending as much time as we can together getting me up to date on all the details of the shop and I am having a blast!!

The official date I get the keys is Sunday, November 17th. I will close that day and Monday to paint and reorganize the new display furnishings I am bringing in and such. If all goes well then I will be back open for business on Tuesday morning at 10 am.

I am rearranging the layout of the store a bit so that we can have a better space for people to come in and sit and knit on the main floor. With that in mind I am going to start a Knit and Natter evening for anyone and everyone to pop in and hang out and knit together. From the feed back that people are offering it looks like it will be Tuesday evenings from 5 pm to 7 pm. Official word will be on the website soon but assume that it will start on Tuesday the 19th.

stitch and bitch imageThere is no cost and anyone can come and all crafting is welcome, it doesn’t have to be just knitting. I will have a pot of tea for us and my handy dandy Kerig machine whipping up coffee as needed or feel free to buy one at the local coffee shops or bring one from home.

This would also be a good opportunity for beginner knitters to come and get started and learn from a group that are all of varying experiences. There are always people happy to help out and answer a question. I will be setting something up for beginner knitters I am trying to sort out a date for that and a project that everyone can work on to hopefully have for the gift giving season ahead.

See you all in the shop soon!!
