Newsletter Vol 23: Fall 2014

Life’s a Stitch!

It’s hard to believe how quickly summer has flown by, but the two or three little red leaves that have started to peek out of my fire bush and the cool nights speak of the coming season. I love this time of year with the school buses making their first rounds, the first taste of crisp apples right off the tree and the promise of an explosion of color as we head into fall and a new season of cool weather knitting!

Speaking of an explosion of color, we are in the middle of unpacking the boxes and boxes of newly arrived fall yarns in gorgeous colors. I cannot help but envision hours and hours of pleasure knitting cables in sweaters, stranded colorwork in cowls and mitts, lacy wraps and lots and lots of socks! Be sure to check out our Yarns in the Spotlight page to get a preview of the many new and beautiful yarns we have in our fall selection and stop in soon to touch and see the new yarns in person and samples on display as well as the fresh stock of old favorites to admire and inspire.

We have so many new and exciting things planned this fall to share with you that we have added new shop hours, too!! Beginning September 7th, and in an effort to address “So Many Patterns and So Little Time,” we have expanded our shop hours to include Sundays from 10:00am to 4:00pm. We hope these additional hours will bring you joy and ease your holiday season shopping and gift making. We look forward to spending extra time with you!

With so many new fall classes, workshops, and exciting events coming up this fall, we hope you can join us for a new technique, a special project, and all the fun. Be sure to check out the details in our Upcoming Events section on our Not Just Socks Club, , our 3rd year of Simple Joy In Simple Gifts, and our Annetarsia Returns to Rochester book signing celebration and workshop!

We wish to thank you for your support and friendship over the last seven years and we welcome any ideas or suggestions you may have to help us make The Village Yarn & Fiber Shop and better for you as we continue to grow. It is our mission to make the world a happier place one knitter at a time.

As always, please feel free to come in for help, a nice chat or just to sit and knit for a bit. We are always happy to see you, excited and inspired by the beautiful projects you create, and look forward to just catching up.

Happy Knitting Always!

Karen, Linda, Sarah & Van
