Sign, Sign everywhere a sign!

Good news, the sign is up. Bad news my needle order is missing...the only yarn shop in Ontario that doesn't have a selection of knitting needles!

Hopefully they will find the order and ship right away so that I will have it soon!

And she said: "let there be light"...and it was good!

Finally, after days of missing each other the electricians arrived to fix all the wiring problems in the store. Small towns are great in that the electrical guy was someone that I knew. So after figuring out where all the wires went and finding that most of the fixtures had the wrong bulbs in them and that's why they weren't working we are now fully lit.

A trip to the big box store netted some okay light fixtures, but as usual the staff member sent me back with the wrong lightbulbs...another trip to exchange and get the right kind! Do you think they do that on purpose to get you back to the store?

The Baskets have arrived. Baba Tree Baskets are in the car waiting to be unwrapped and reshaped. These baskets are handmade in Ghana, fair trade, lovely. Can't wait to open the package.

I phoned a major yarn supplier to inquire about my order..very large. Reply was: "when would you like me to send it?" My response: "Last Friday?" So they are shipping that today!

Things are getting done....its just taking way longer than I planned.

5 more sleeps until Soper Creek Yarn opens!

Coming Soon To Bowmanville

Its been years in the works and now finally a dream is becoming reality. Soper Creek Yarn will open its doors (door) on Tuesday December 2nd. We won't be quite done all the work, but in order to be available to our customers we have decided to open anyway.

So drop by, smell the fresh paint, open a few yarn packages and enjoy the visit to a new place for people who love yarn.

Yesteday I unpacked orders from Sirdar, Berrocco, Debbie Bliss, and Noro. There is more arriving every day.

Come visit me at 80 King Street West in Bowmanville, Ontario. Hours will be Tuesday - Saturday 10 am - 5 pm. (for now...we will see how things change in 2009).
