Reestablishing the brick and mortar shop we loved is what I would prefer to do, but it is not viable right now. However, I have been working successfully at getting us "together" again and I have a solution. I contacted all the vendors who supported the shop for six years. I told them our story and asked what they could do to help us go forward. They started sending us yarn and accessories to help us get started. The yarns they sent are many of the same brands we carried at the shop...quality and lovely to work with.
I would like to honor their help (see vendors below) and support of our community.
I have sent out invitations to our email listing inviting everyone to join our efforts to establish a group with a goal to provide our community with baby items (premie hats, sweaters, booties, etc.), blankets, prayer shawls, etc. The most important part of this is the time together. We all desperately need an outlet from the past two months, and I am hoping this provides that opportunity for get togethers. So if you want to belong to a group that is generous and supports the community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
NOW to save your place in our future meetings.
