Exciting news!

Dear readers, fellow knitters, & esteemed Stitchjones customers,

Some big changes are happening, and I'm very excited and happy to share the news with you. Effective November 1st, I will be the proud new owner of Kathy's Knit Korner in Forest Grove, Oregon! Back in 1999-2000, I found myself with some extra time once my daughter was in elementary school, so I decided to take up knitting which I'd put aside to chase after her. When I walked into Kathy's Knit Korner for the first time, I discovered yarns more beautiful, varied and amazing than anything I'd ever seen in a craft store, and it turned me into a true knitting addict. Although my knitting skills improved slowly, Kathy was always supportive and encouraging of my efforts, and she always tried to help me find just the right pattern for the yarn I picked out. To be able to provide the same assistance, advice and inspiration to knitters and crocheters is no less than a dream come true!

You might be wondering though, now that this is happening, will there be any more Stitchjones yarn & fiber? Rest assured, there will indeed, because the shop's basement is the perfect space to set up a dye studio! I've started packing up my mini-dyeworks already. I'm still reeling from all the excitement, and so very grateful for this unique opportunity to do both things I love. In the weeks and months to come, I'll be getting to know the many wonderful customers at the shop, and starting a brand new adventure. My enormous thanks to everyone who's supported Stitchjones, because without you this would not be happening. I'll send out frequent updates on Facebook, Twitter and Ravelry groups about both the studio's progress and news & happenings at the shop. I hope to see many of you there!

OMG! How wonderful for you. And what a full-time job!!

Thank you all so much! I still can hardly believe it. I already love being there, the people are great - and I hope many of the talented people I've gotten to know will come to the shop!
Sharon, I am so thrilled for you! I wish I still lived in Beaverton as I'd head out to your shop in a heartbeat. I am excited to hear about the changes you make and I will have to come by when I'm in town again.
That is exciting!! ~~ Can't wait to make it out there. Where will pick up be for the yarn club now?
