Don’t panic! There’s a good reason to empty the shop and it’s only temporary. More on that further down. But first, we head out this weekend to Savage, Maryland to be part of the HomeSpun Yarn Party on Sunday, and this place is a flurry of activity getting last-minute prep done. And I know I mentioned in my last post what a busy time it’s been around here, but I did I forget to mention what an exciting time it’s been? I think I did..
Profiled on the HomeSpun Yarn Party website
Exciting is not just because of all the prep Homespun, but also because HomeSpun Yarn Party did a feature post about SpaceCadet Creations on their website. It was such a rush to see our name and our yarns up there with all the other fantastic indie dyers and spinners who go to HomeSpun!
Interviewed on Falling Stitches
And, to add exciting on top of exciting, the designer Ariane Caron-Lacote interviewed me on her blog, Falling Stitches. I’ve been a fan of her designs for a while, and I was so delighted that she asked me to be interviewed. Pop over and have a read and, while you’re at it, check out her designs (including my favourite, Dalia).
Emptying the Shop
I will remove most of the yarns and fiber from the shop while we’re at Homespun (to ensure that we don’t inadvertently sell any of the same yarns twice!), but I will get everything back in again as quickly as possible. I will probably take the stock out on Saturday night, and then you can look for the shop to be fully stocked again sometime between Sunday night and Tuesday morning. If there’s something in the shop right now that you really love, grab it now!
And, of course, I will keep the subscription buttons for the InterStellar Yarn Alliance live, so that you join and become a member any time you like! Remember, there’s less than a week left to sign up for the Yarn Alliance — subscriptions close March 31, 2011!
