The Big Move!

It's been a while since I've been online--but that is because I have been busy getting the new shop open for the big move. The big move is happening at the end of this month--we will be open regular hours on Saturday, May 29. We will be closed on Sunday, May 30, Monday May 31 and Tuesday, June 1 for "The Big Move!" In case you haven't heard The Needle Lady is moving a half block west--still on the downtown mall--to 111 W. Main St. We will be in between Millers and The Blue Whale Bookstore. Here is our new storefront!


Here is a shot inside the store looking out onto the mall.


That would be Nicki's head in the lower left hand corner. The inside has just been freshly painted and the floor newly tiled. The french doors have just been added to the back wall and the doors lead into our new classroom/office space. With the size of our Wednesday knit group growing we will have 2 big tables in the shop to seat everyone.


Be sure to come in and say goodbye to our old space this week and next. We have received some great new summer yarns--Debbie Bliss Amalfi yarn is in with a great new accompanying pattern book. We've just been restocked with Prism Merino Mia, Symphony and Angora! We have some great MaggiKnits summer shawls and tops that I brought home from Stitches South---complete with a wide selection of Maggi's Linen and Maggi's Cotton! I'll get pictures this week and show them to you if you can't get into the shop!

We are planning a great festive event in the new shop to celebrate our grand reopening! On Friday, June 4 (a first Friday) we will be having The Big Move Yarn Tasting/Grand Reopening Night at the new shop. Admission is $15 ($12 if purchased in advance) and includes wine, catered hors d'oeuvres from Silver Pear Catering, a chance to win some great door prizes, including $100 Needle Lady gift certificate, and 15% off storewide during the event, or all day Friday if ticket is purchased in advance. The tables will be set with a variety of yarns and different types of needles that can be sample knit or crocheted. Tahki Stacy Charles is sending us a great spring/summer trunk show or new garments and yarn to help us celebrate our re-opening. Also, the wearing of some hand knit or crocheted item is also required for admission...

Congratulations on the move. I love your current shop. I definitely am stopping on May 28th on my way from PA to NC. I tell everyone you have the best yarn shop selection I have ever seen.
