White River Yarns Knitting the Community Together
White River Yarns The Community's Yarn Shop
The past 6 weeks have been packed with activity for me and the shop. My youngest son and child number 7 was married in Los Angeles and upon the return from that joyous occasion I had shoulder surgery. I am doing well and gaining strength rapidly. These events reminded me that I am part of a wonderful supportive community.
The evidence of it has been vast. Starting with Mary as she has once again stood in my stead and held down the fort. By her side was volunteer and friend Tina. These two ladies along with a team of faithful friends each day came to the shop in an effort to make sure excellent customer service was given to everyone. From all reports they did a fine job. I am overwhelmed with the sacrifice of time given to keep our shop open and thriving.
I must also say a heartfelt thanks to everyone who sent cards, gifts, well wishes and prayers during my surgery. I am healing quickly and look forward to a full and complete recovery over the next few weeks.
Spring is on the way and we have had a great winter of knitting our swirl coats, sweater workshop and the year long building blocks afghan. This spring will give us the opportunity to look to the new colors of great light weight yarns. I have received new yarns from Knit One Crochet Two, Sassy Skeins Kottons, Be Sweet, Classic Elite, Karabella, new summer patterns and more coming in weekly.
If you haven't stopped by lately do stop in and help me clear out some yarn to make room for the new. If you are not on my email list do so to as the Summer and Fall are going to be packed with great events. The best way to get advanced notice is to be on the mailing list. Another great way to hear current news is to like White River Yarns on Facebook.
I am looking forward to warm weather, working in the garden and enjoying sunny days.
