I know a couple of you have been curious about this…..
The shop is open. Although I’m not ready for a “Grand Opening” It’s mostly set up and there is actually quite a bit of fiber and yarn there.
I suppose I haven’t really made a huge announcement because it’s small (about the size of a double booth at a fiber show). I don’t have the remodel done, heck it hasn’t even really been started. The remodel will make the space HUGE and there will be a giant dye kitchen.
Obviously the pictures don’t show all that is there. I have a few more pots of spindles, 3 more tubs of fiber, 2 more tubs of yarn, 3 more wheels that are set up and 2 flip looms that aren’t shown.
Right now I’m open Mon, Wed, and Saturday 10am-3pm or by appointment. I’m working most days just not always at this location. I need to be at the other location dyeing. Which is why I need to build a new dye kitchen at the shop location then I’ll be there at least 5-6 days each week. I’m hoping that within 6 months or so I’ll be able to have it done. I’m not sure if I’m being too ambitious but I’m going to sure try to get all of it done. Then when the shop is bigger I can have a spinning group and classes. Even without it done I might do some classes out on the patio. The patio is nice for doing some dyeing or fleece prep. I’ll make sure to keep everyone posted. I’ve also signed up for a bunch of shows, I’m just waiting to hear if I’ve been accepted.
While we’re on the subject of shops, some of you may have figured out that I’m selling to a few of your local shops. Check it out HERE to see where you can find me off the web.
