Sometimes, things turn out so serendipitously, you just can’t help but smile & be amazed. My upcoming trunk show at White River Yarns this Thursday at 6pm is one of those times.
It all started when a customer-friend wore her newest embroidered felt hat into White River Yarns in White River Junction, VT a few months ago.
(And let me just say… this particular hat of hers is an extraordinarily fancy 5 Flower Vine embroidery, custom-designed to go with a new purple coat:)
So… Karen, the lovely & wonderful shop owner sees the hat, stops my friend to admire it, tracks down my info & lo! calls me up the very next day:
“I **love** your hats & want them in my store. Let’s meet to talk about it…”
So meet we did!
I had not yet been to White River Yarns & was immediately impressed by the cozy situation Karen has there next to the Hotel Coolidge in Downtown WRJ:
It’s a lovely little shop, whose motto, “Knitting the community together” is evident everywhere you look.
Naturally, there are bins overflowing with colorful yarn along every wall up to the ceiling:
Plus, books and buttons, needles and notions, patterns and knitted items of every sort right there to inspire you:
There is a little kitchen corner, equipped with mini-fridge, microwave, mugs & tea, plus a perpetual bowl of candy on the counter.
But the best part by far is the collection of cozy chairs, variously inhabited by shop regulars & newbies alike, all enjoying the benefit of Karen’s generous hospitality & knitting wisdom:
I am delighted & honored to show my hats in Karen’s lovely shop this Thursday, February 6 2014, from 6-8pm.
If you’re in the Upper Valley & searching for a one-of-a-kind, warm felt hat (or knitted felt hat kit), please come to my 1st-ever felt hat trunk show at White River Yarns.
You’ll love it there!
