As you are no doubt aware by now, Beckie has made the difficult decision to leave Unraveled. Her initial plan was to simply close the store. I heard this news on a Sunday morning at the end of June and my initial thought was "Rats - there goes my yarn store!". I mentioned this in passing to my husband the next day and his first words were "Oh, are you going to buy it?".
I admit, I hadn't considered this before and it certainly gave me something to think about as I drove to work that day. When I got there, I told a friend that the store was closing and she said, "Oh, are you going to buy it?".
Now, I don't know about you but that sure seems like a not-so-subtle nudge from the universe to me.
So I spoke to Beckie and we came to an agreement. I would purchase the store.
You'll see when you come in (you are coming in, right?) that some old favourites are still stocked as well as a few new things. Rowan yarn is still available as is Opal and Regia sock yarns, but there is now more from Cascade. A few things from Berroco are now available as is a gorgeous yarn from a local producer. There is linen and some gorgeous silk and a bit more for spinners and needle felters. Oh, and there is this.
I can't wait to see you.
