does yarn have wings?

Boxes are on the way to Yarnivore from Mango Moon, Cascade Yarns, Jennifer Pudney needlepoint kits, and Dancing Cat tapestry bags.

I'm bringing my computer over to the space today, and my DSL has been installed, and Iko is busily creating my web pages, and in general I am speeding towards a soft opening in the next week or so, and a "Grand Opening" in the week or so after that!

I'm figuring out about t-shirts now -- I'd like to do preorders so that I have a sense of what to order in my first shipment, but I haven't done that sort of thing on a website yet, so it might be a day or two before I have that up. I could also just guess, I suppose!

UPDATE: Two huge boxes of yarn from Chester Farms arrived Tuesday night!

Wow, looks like things are coming together - you must be really excited!

Those mango moon yarns are gorgeous!

(By the way, did I ever ask you if you've read the Monica Ferris mysteries - they're about this woman who takes over a cross-stitch shop. She's a knitter, though. Sorry if I asked this already -- I'm a bit scattered these days.)

Hey there - I just stumbled on your site... Congrats with the yarn store! How cool! I own a parent supervisied children's play center in Arizona (although I grew up in the Bronx!) Not that the businesses are related - but just a note to let you know that I ordered a TON of t-shirts for the store... we had a huge grand opening and figured we'd sell a lot of t-shirts... HA - we sold ONLY 1... and we've been open since July and have sold less than 10 shirts total :-( They've been great for prizes, employees, etc... well why am I telling you this... well we found that cafepress.com works great for ordering on demand and not keeping and inventory...

Just a thought for ya!

:-) AL


PS - if you need to bounce biz stuff off anyone - give a yell!
