Amazing Threads:Spring Yarns are HERE & So much more!




Spring is on its way, even if Mother Nature wanted a slight delay today.  Snow in the morning and sunshine this afternoon.  The next 7-day forecast promises 40 degrees next week.  
  Its great to be HOME.  I had a fabulous trip to Australia and New Zealand with great friends and family.  I loved the beautiful landscapes and the friendly people. BUT it is wonderful to be HOME in the USA.  We are a wonderful country to live in and I am thankful for TSA officers that keep us safe even when I am tired of taking off my shoes and standing in security and customs lines.


I have never been away from the shop for this long before and can't wait to get there tomorrow to check out the new inventory, touch the yarns and thank my staff for taking care of everything while I was gone.  The vibe in our shop is so exciting these days.  All of our staff love being in the shop and working with our customers as they choose yarn and patterns to knit and crochet.  Come and feel the excitement!
