We opened up July 3rd, 2010, under new ownership.
If you have not yet met Jonni (pronounced Jaw-Knee) please do come by and say hello.
We are interested in knowing what our customers would like to see @ YarnDurango, so send us an email, call in or come by and write something down on our Wish List @ the front counter!
The new shop hours are:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday from 10am - 6pm
Wednesdays from 12Noon - 8pm
Sundays from 12Noon-4pm
Lots of new things have happened in the past month since we have opened.
We have a new sitting area with all of the books and patterns.
It is lovingly referred to as the "Man Chair" section.
Husbands always welcome.. ;0)
The courtyard Garden is BEAUTIFUL this time of year.
Strange to think that in just a few more months it will be filled with snow!
Many have commented on how "clean" everything looks.
Wel, there is not a TON of yarn in the shop, but there WILL be! Surely it will fill up nicely.
We also put a lot of work into sprucing things up. Fresh paint, rearranging displays, cleaning and finishing the floors, and a new style of decorating all around.
The shop feels large and open, and it has made for a lovely environment to browse yarns in!
We do have a few "special" yarns in the shop, for a hand knit item to treat yourself or someone else. These spools of differnt luxurious blends are just the thing!
Perhaps these might go on your Christmas list?!
Have any of you who have been in noticed the beautiful, fragrant, fresh flowers gracing the shop?
We have Blossom arrangements freshly placed in the shop every week. They smell AMAZING and are so BEAUTIFUL! If you are in need of flowers, definitely give them a call!!!
Monday's Knit Night group has resumed meeting from 4-7pm.
Wednesdays the FLKC Ladies group meets from 5:30 - 8:30.
Thursdays the local spinners of Durango come in from 1-4pm.
And The Mad Hatters group will resume meeting to knit
Baby Hats for the hospital this month as well.
We will be posting a class list soon, there have been many requests for classes and certain projects. If there is anything you would particularly like to attend a class on, PLEASE let us know!
Thursday's Spinning Ladies
We still have a lot of Spring and Summer yarn, and a few things left in the sale area. We also have the Odd's and Ends section where Jonni has painstakingly placed out her own collection of yarn in an effort to find it all a new home. It's always changing and new Stash items are being brought out every week.
For August, September and October, expect to see some new Fall/Winter yarns in the shop. We'll have new wool and alpaca from Cascade. We have ordered Atenti and Namaste totes and bags. We'll be having Needlepoint kits as well as kits for Fair Isle hats featuring One of a Kind and Vintage yarns! We're also looking at getting some embroidery supplies in the shop in time for Christmas.
All this is just a start to the many things coming in to the new YarnDurango, so if there is anything you would like us to consider, don't be shy, please do let us know!
