I moved my business into the Taringa shop in 2013 where I have met some beautiful customers who have become very close friends. I have met some wonderful people in the yarn industry both in Australia and overseas. I have been fortunate enough to attend four Vogue Knitting Live Conventions in the United States where I met designers, yarn dyers and yarn shop owners. Lovely people all of them! How blessed am I!
I really wanted something special to mark this 10th Anniversary and so l contacted Taiu Landra owner of Koigu Yarn. We have stocked Koigu for 9 years and the Kpppm and Kpm is my favourite yarn out of everything that we stock. Taiu has put together a one of a kind pencil box colourway to celebrate my 10 years in business. I wanted something very Queensland. Something tropical and vibrant and so I sent her some photos of The Great Barrier Reef. I am so happy with the result!
I would like to thank you all for supporting me over the past 10 years. I thought that I knew it all when I first began and I quickly found out that I pretty much knew nothing except how to knit and crochet! The 10 year journey has been a real learning experience and I admire anyone who has their own business, especially retail. Thank goodness my husband is an accountant and I have the best people working for me! Thank you Jim, Mel, Kim and Kirstyn.
We will have a few giveaways during the month and I will keep you posted about those soon.
