It’s been 5 years since the Rowan lady was first in the door of our brand new Point Grey store.
Our girls were just 8 years old:
They’re teenagers now. Remember their store opening announcement?
“Anina Hansen and Leslie Jones have started a new stor that has brot the new fashion. This new stor is called Urban yarns, but the real famus ones hoobrot the fashion and hoo is the reason that Urban yarns is invented is Kaitlyn and Nicole. Because if it worint for Kaitlyn and Nicole liking each other Anina and Leslie woudent have becaume best friends and that is wy Urban yarns is ther. The adress of this fashion macking Urban Yarns stor is 4421 West 10the Ave. tel. 604-228-1122. Fax. 228-1133. Ther e-mail adress is: email@example.com.
So go today and get somme wool and start niting!”
Their spelling is much better these days and they still take credit for the creation of Urban Yarns.
Our boys are a bit oblivious to the whole yarn store thing. They know their mothers knit and they enjoy having an endless supply of hats to lose wear on cold winter days:
They’re a couple of years older now, tween dudes not little boys anymore. Unbelievable how time flies.
We lost our good friend Niki along the way:
Niki was the inspiration for our store. She told us in no uncertain terms to “quit talking about it and just do it.” Something we should all do more often. We miss you Niki!
A lot of things have happened over the past 5 years, some good, some bad. But much more often than not the warmth and enthusiasm of the Urban Yarns community put big smiles on our faces.
To celebrate the 5th anniversary of Urban Yarns, we’re having our biggest sale ever, starting tomorrow at 10 a.m.. Check out the list. It’s our way of saying thanks for your continued encouragement, support and inspiration over the last five years. We’ll be open late tomorrow evening in Point Grey and hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine and some nibbles. Five years is definitely cause for celebration!!!
