Sheepish Sunday (on a Monday)
Many of you probably are on the Yarnhouse Studio mailing list, so you’ve probably heard by now that Cary is selling the store. If not, here’s the notice from the newletter:
"This is your newsy note to tell you that we are selling Yarnhouse Studio!
Wonderfully, it will STAY RIGHT HERE! We are ecstatic, to say the least, that we will all get to keep coming to this wonderful place. The buyers are some of our own customers, and although they will make many needed changes, many things will stay the same, but even better!
We want to take this opportunity to tell you how very, very much all of you have meant to us. We (Anne and Cary) will always look back at this as one of the very most wonderful things we ever did. A HUGE part of that has been you. Our customers have brought us so much joy, and we have learned from and been inspired so much by you all. Thank you for coming in; thank you for returning; thank you for supporting us; thank you for being a part of our lives.
The changeover in ownership will happen at the end of this month. Anne is only at the store for one more week, for then she is going to Colorado to see her youngest daughter! Cary has already started working only on Saturdays, and so she will be here next Saturday as her last full day at the store (although will also be at the twoTuesday night knitting groups left in July). Both of us look forward to coming to knitting groups in the future, so we’ll still be around! Anne will continue teaching weaving beginning in September.
The new owners are named Jan and Deb, and they are sisters. I’m sure they will send out a newsletter introducing themselves soon, but I’ll go on and tell you that they bring an amazing skillset to the store. One thing they will add to the store, for instance, is dyeing! So get ready for some in-house dyed yarns, for one thing. :) We can’t wait to see what else new they bring in.
Again, thank you a million times for being part of Yarnhouse Studio!!
-Cary and Anne”
As the resident blogger, I am so happy for everyone that this change is happening. I am going to turn the reins over in August for the blog as well, so this is my last month of driving this crazy train. I’ve been having so much fun doing this, but time marches on and things change. I’m so glad to have met so many great folks through the shop and the blog. :D Thanks y’all!
