You won’t ever hear me say I’ve had a bad day at work. Owning a yarn shop, how bad can it be? Without a doubt, our customers are what make the shop amazing. Lots of comfy chairs filled with knitters of every age and demographic. It is NEVER boring, and usually a whole lot of fun.
Besides interacting with the customers, and stocking shelves, my favorite task has to be the buying. I’ve always loved buying, even long ago when we were a clothing boutique, (which was considerably more stressful). Yarn buying is nothing but pure FUN. I thought maybe you’d like to share a little taste of what just one salesman showed today.
Neatly organized color cards and swatches from Classic Elite Yarns.
Knit 1 Crochet Too, lots of bright swatches!
Jade Sapphire Cashmeres, umm………, yes please!
A suitcase stuffed with Mountain Colors, and Mr.Fix-it thinks I travel with a lot of yarn. 😉
Dunn Roving, every yarn comes in every color. There are only a couple hundred to choose from!
And Artyarns. Sparkles, Beads and Sequins, Oh My!
It’s a rough job, but somebody’s gotta do it!
(Lots of the yarns above will be in stock at The Quarter Stitch very soon!)
