I met with Anne Hughes this week. Anne is an Adrian woman who will be opening a shop in April specializing in quilting, knitting, embroidery, etc. The name is Anne's By Design. When I retired I really wanted to open a yarn shop. I couldn't think of any way I would rather spend my time. Spending all of my days passing along my love knitting and fiber. Bringing new people into the fold. Sharing my addiction. It sounded wonderful. It sounded heavenly. Dick said, "ARE YOU CRAZY!!!!!!!" So, I am committed to helping Anne's By Design be successful. I am going to live vicariously through Anne, her bravery and her new shop. I want to help Anne's By Design be everything I wanted my shop to be. By the way, the name of my LYS was "In Stitches." Doesn't that sound like a fun place to be? I told Anne that she can consider me staff but she doesn't have to pay me. I will volunteer to help her shop be successful. I have a meeting next week with Kellie from Knitting On The Fringe in Commerce Township. Kellie has been so supportive of "Knitting: A Love Story" and I want to learn from her wisdom for Anne.
So, I am anticipating Anne's By Design opening and being a small part of something very special. I will keep you posted on this exciting happening.
