The Artful Yarn is open! We are so thrilled to have opened just three days ago and are having a ton of fun! Meeting new folks is always the best part and we met quite a few over this past weekend. It’s quite a rush to see that folks embrace our vibe of woman-owned, family-owned businesses from right here in the USA! Plus they are diggin’ the whole hand-dyed, hand-spun or hand-painted, organic, recycled, minimally-processed vibe – along with US-sourced fibers where we can. The Wall o’ Yarn (as we call our one big wall) is a beautiful, colorful sight!
Now we are getting the whole social-networking thing up and running. Thankfully we have a 16-year-old son who can just come click-click something on the computer and there’s a link on the website. I should have the website up in the next day or two. Have to – because the Sun Paper is running a little article about The Artful Yarn this week! How cool is that!
So grab your calendar now! We’ve got some fun class ideas which will be posted on our website: www.theartfulyarn.com and we are going to be open on the first Thursday night of every month for Chagrin First Thursdays. That night all the stores and restaurants in Chagrin Falls are open until 9:00 PM. So we are having Yarntini Night! Come sit and knit, crochet, spin, anything fiber fun from 6:30-8:30 PM. It’s a great chance to get away from home, work, somebody’s practice, volunteering, whatever! Just come and relax!
We also have Learn to Knit (and Purl!) classes running every Sunday afternoon for just $10. Again, check out the website for the details on that and how to register.
So psyched to be open and looking forward to meeting all of you! Come visit us. Tell us what you think, what you would like to see and what you would like to do in the way of classes or events. And if you’re an awesome teacher, let us know if you are interested in teaching something at The Artful Yarn!
