It's been a long week at market. The first two days I chair the Retail Council. In the middle I get to enjoy being a buyer on the market floor. At the end I am the retailers voice on the National Needlework Board. Long week and I get to come home tomorrow. I look forward to seeing the staff and our customers at the shop. Being the owner of a yarn shop is the best job in the world. Thanks, of course to my staff and YOU! Tonight's blast will be a little shorter, but for some of you that might be great! Market report includes Fashion Show showstoppers & spring previews!
Skirts were everywhere and XRX will have a new book of skirt out next month! T-shirts knit in every type of fabric will be fun to knit for spring, summer and fall! Malabrigo has new anniversary colors in every yarn and LOTS of new RIOS colors I ordered them all for US!
Rios will be restocked this week at the shop as well by Thursday!
I shipped a few things I picked up at market home today so there should be new surprises at the shop by Monday!
