Kim Werker was all set to shoot the Summer 2008 issue of Interweave Crochet in Vancouver one day last week. The photographers and models were booked, the garments were ready and everyone was scheduled to meet at the beach early one morning. And then it started to snow. Snow in Vancouver at the end of March? Unbelievable. Pretty much destroys your Summer photo plans. But Kim is unflappable. She called her LYS and we were happy to oblige. The team set up at Point Grey and shot away in the midst of a busy shopping day with a couple of classes adding spice to the mix. It was a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see the new issue.
We unpacked more stuff this week. There’s a new 100% Camel yarn that you’re going to like. It’s supersoft, with 230 metres to the ball for only $8.95. We have some new colours of Elspeth Lavold Silky Tweed and Silky Wool. And we opened a big box full of Lantern Moon bags, needles and accessories. Have you seen the cute little Notepad Holders with a yarn and needle motif on the cover? These are great knickknacks for any yarnoholic. We also have more of the popular Sheep Tape Measures. There’s one black sheep in every bunch!
And we’ve ordered Sivia Harding’s beautiful new RiverRock beaded scarf pattern. It will be in the stores early next week.
We’re sad to report that our staffer and instructor, Nicholas Jacques, will be leaving us in a couple of weeks. He’s moving to Chilliwack. Must be love. So we have an immediate opening for 2 - 3 days a week in our Edgemont store. Phone us if you’re interested…
