Renovation time

After being in business for 1.5 years, we decided it was time to look at the shoppe and see how we could use the space to give you better service. We decided to put a table and chairs in the front room, to use for classes. Books, notions, and patterns will also go out into the front room. Yarn will be in the main and back room.

We are getting rid of the trellis and brought in shelves for the yarn. Here are Kate and Ashley working hard, helping to set up the new shelves.

And here is the finished project.

The checkout area has also been moved.

We are still in the process of moving items around. This is the back room - we took the shelves out and the countertop will also be removed.

The room will have shelves full of yarn and the buttons and notions are going into the front room where we are putting up slatboard for the notions. Bookshelves will hold patterns and books.

I have four boxes sitting in the closet, waiting to be unloaded. New yarn from Farmhouse Yarns, more Denise Organizers, yarn from Fiber Trends, and felted items and other goodies from Rising Tide.
