Before I describe the special events I have planned for
you, endure my soapbox speech, please. The idea of the yarn crawl, other than great networking, is to acquaint each of you with yarn shops, designers, weavers, etc., for your shopping pleasure and future reference. Every destination pays a fee to participate, and we enjoy the benefit of meeting old and new customers, plus increased sales. We don’t expect everyone to make a large purchase, but do take the time to see what we have to offer. Most of us have small items for a couple of dollars, if our yarns don’t thrill you. Please have the courtesy not to rush into the shop, push your way to the head of the line, demand to have your passport stamped, and hurry out without so much as a glance around. Yes, we do this for a living, but our shops are our daytime homes. Be a considerate guest. We’ll be happy to talk to you, and we’d like you to have a real visit. Maybe even splurge on a card of buttons or some darning needles, but at least say hello. And thanks for putting up with Cynthia’s pet peeve.
Now, what’s new for the yarn crawl? First, our very own, exclusive, hand dyed for us, yarn from Morandia Fibers. I got to choose the colors, name the colorway, and be involved with the whole process. Our own “Cynthia’s Iris” will debut during the yarn crawl. Sock weight, worsted weight, two different fiber blends including a luscious merino/cashmere—you’ll only see it here.
Next, side shows. Three of our customers are also entrepreneurs. They will appear at the shop on different days to tout their wares. They are:
Linda Jenkinson, What the Fudge (Gourmet Fudge) the 19th, 20th, 26th, and 27th
Nessa Burba, The Posh Penguin (spa cosmetics) the 18th, 22nd, and 24th
Leann Baber, Dusty’s Things (wooden puzzles and toys) the 25th and 26th
As many of you know, we always have yarn crawl specials based on, ahem, little known holidays. Here are this year’s specials:
18th: Bad Poetry day—bring and recite an original poem for 10% off
any sock yarn, so your feet will smell better than the poem.
19th: International Orangutan Day—10% off any orange yarn.
21st: Senior Citizens’ Day—bring proof that you’re older than Cynthia
for 10% off your total purchase.
24th: Vesuvius Day—10% off Premier Eversoft “Volcano” colorway
Some of our suppliers have also contributed door prizes.
