I would like to formally introduce my wonderful new partner at Urban Yarns, Jan Leard. An adventurous soul by nature (see lovely photo), Jan is also one of those rare beings…a born and raised Vancouverite!
Jan has been a good friend of both mine and Kathleen’s for many years. A true craft genius with knitting and quilting being 2 of her true passions. When not crafting or enjoying time with her family, Jan is an avid gardener, cyclist, crazy mountain biker (one of my cycling ladies…) and minder of a menagerie of pets.
To welcome Jan, and kick off our Fall ‘09 Stitch N’ Bitch season we invite you join us this Friday September 11th, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at our West 10th location. If you haven’t met Jan yet, we hope you’ll come introduce yourselves and have a glass of wine to officially celebrate her arrival.
Jan steps into Leslie’s shoes as Leslie departs to enjoy well deserved, endless hours of knitting at her leisure. After all the systems were set up and endless hours of fine tuning that she has contributed to our success over the years, we wish her the very best with all her future endeavors.
Leslie’s latest project is currently on display in the window of the West 10th store and is creating quite the buzz. We hope Leslie continues to share her gorgeous projects with us and she promises to stop by from time to time to replenish her stash.
Here’s to a wonderful season at Urban Yarns and a great start for Jan.
