Still Waiting.......

So, we are still waiting to finalize our lease. We have signed the papers on our end and submitted our deposits, but as of today, the landlord is still on vacation.

But, progress is being made! We have 14 boxes (BIG boxes) of yarn already and more on the way. We are talking Frog Tree, Manos del Uruguay, Malabrigo, Brown Sheep, Misti Alpaca, Crystal Palace, Universal, Wisdom, FibraNatura, and several more! It is like Christmas opening the boxes and seeing all the wonderful colors and textures.

The Yarn Market News Smart Business Conference in Seattle was fabulous! It was great to meet and network with some amazing speakers and shop owners. The yarn crawl was fun (5 shops), the reception at Julep (sponsored by DellaQ) was relaxing, the open house at Skacel was eye opening, and we even were able to squeeze in a shopping trip at Ikea!

The next challenges are getting all the inventory checked in, working on shop models and displays, and meeting with a couple more company reps.
