2009 - What a Year !

2009 has been a brilliant year, I thought I would just put together a little picture show of all we have been up to. I must apologise for the lack of blogging in the past months but as you can see we have been up to something(s)!

Over the Spring and Summer We had stands at Wonderwool Wales at Builth Wells, Fibrefest in Uffculme, Devon and the Iknit Weekender in London. It was great fun and we enjoyed meeting a whole host of people, customers, celebrities and friends. Who knows where we will crop up next year!

Next in October Mum, Dad, Andrew (bro) and I were lucky enough to go to Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival in New York state, I really should write a whole post on this road trip as it was fantastic ! (will write one up in the New Year) We went in far too many yarn stores including the fab ones Purl Soho (need to add I walked 40 blocks of New York to get to Purl !) Loop and the Tangled Web in Philadelphia and Princeton's amazing yarn store Pins and Needles more pictures and write up to follow I promise. Massive thanks to Kirsty for holding the fort whilst we were away!

Then in November we had the mammoth task of moving shops, not recommended for the faint hearted ! We now have a gorgeous space in a very old building (built in 1200 and something!) with tonnes of space for more yarn and goodies. Not quite finished yet with a shop front still to do (need help in ganging up on the landlord) We had a great time at the opening and were very happy to have Ysolda Teague drop by to officially open.

All that's left for me to say for 2009 is thank you to all our lovely customers and friends who make our shop what it is, we have lots in store for 2010 and look forward to seeing you all soon. Happy Knitting and Happy New Year !
Lots of love Lisa and Diana x x
