We are open for business!
Finally! After two months of hard work, Rows & Roses Yarn & Fiber is finally ready, and we are open for business!
The Grand Opening was a smashing success. No fire, no injuries, no explosions. Can’t ask for much more than that, amiright? We had an excellent turn out. Ethel Mae’s Bake Shop made us some gorgeous hand-painted citrus cookies. In addition to the cookies, we had plenty of hot coffee. The free mini-skeins were a hit, as well. All of our initial orders were here on time, labeled and stocked and ready for purchase. In fact, we sold so much that first day, I had to come home that night and place more orders!
Just in case you missed it, I want to share some pictures with you so you can really get an idea of what this little place is like. We’ve got the yarn shop on the right, and the workshop on the left, compete with winding station, work table, in-house library, and a sitting area that is very well lit. This place isn’t just for shopping, it’s for working too!
If you haven’t quite made it in just yet, please come check us out! Bring your current project and sit and stitch on one of our comfy couches. If you have a repair to make, or a skein of yarn to wind, or even a shawl to block, bring it and do it here so you won’t have to clear out an area big enough at home (and then try to keep your cats off it, if your house is anything like mine.)
If you DID come hang out with us already, be sure to come back soon so you can watch us grow. We’ve got new stuff coming in all the time, as well as a wishlist at the door where you can let me know exactly what you’re looking for.
Our two classes we have planned so far have both almost sold out already! If you are looking for a class to learn to crochet or learn to spin on a drop spindle, come on over and buy your spot before they’re gone. More classes coming soon!
Thank you all for being here and supporting my little business. I know it’s small for now, but my passion for yarn and plans for the future are MASSIVE, and there is soooooo much more on the way. Our local community needs a place like this ♥
In the meantime, check out my pattern shop on Ravelry and let me know which of my patterns you’d like to see as a kit of the month! (Psssst… Tilted is the kit for September, and it’s almost sold out. Come grab yours!)
