Bad News

I'm sorry to have to announce that our visit from Nicky Epstein next Wednesday has been cancelled due to an illness in her family. That is too bad. I feel bad for her, and I know alot of people were looking forward to coming in to meet her. In other news, we are still on a search for someone to work in the shop. I didn't realize how difficult it would be, it is quite frustrating, but we are hopeful that someone will turn up. I am also getting a bit discouraged on the swap front as I haven't heard from my person. I signed up for my first swap, Hot Socks, am looking forward to trying this out. I have seen so many swap photos onlike, it looks like a lot of fun.
We had a visit today from Becca of Yarnsmith fame. She did a demonstration on how to make her bag kits. It made me want to make one, if I ever finish my Silk Shrug, which is still in progress. We also recieved our shipment of Feza today, which seems to just fly out the door on its own.

P.S I have heard from my hot socks partner. Her email went into my bulk folder by mistake. She sounds really nice, I am really excited now!

I'm your Hot Socks partner and I emailed you a couple of days ago to let you know how things were going...maybe it got deleted by your spam filter. I'm sorry! Please don't be worried/disappointed. :o(

Anyway, I'm in the process of assembling a box of exciting things for you -- hopefully it will be all together and ready to go by the end of the week. I'm so excited about the yarn I'm sending that it's going to take a lot of will power to not keep it for myself! :o)

Have a super, fantastic, wonderful day!

I so enjoyed my visit to your shop last month! If I wasn't a continent away I would drop everything and beg for that job. I hope you find someone soon!
