We can't believe it's been a week since our Grand Opening. Wow, what an incredible day it was!
Last Saturday we all woke up excited and nervous, unsure of what was ahead. We arrived early at the shop and met up with our amazing staff. We ran around cleaning and had a few minutes to chat before we opened the doors. As we peeked out the window we were surprised to see a line of people had formed down the street. All these people lined up waiting to see Tolt Yarn and Wool, 10am on a Saturday in our wee little town of Carnation... we couldn't believe it! The doors opened and we were greeted by warm smiles on new faces and familiar ones too, we were so overwhelmed with gratitude.
Our shop was FULL and stayed full for hours. Everyone was so kind and patient even those waiting in the long lines to checkout. We had visitors from Portland and Canada and east of the mountains. The lovely ladies that put on Knit City in Vancouver, B.C. were there and so was the beautiful Caitlin Ffrench. Dianna Walla stopped by with camera in hand and the KnitFit Seattle organizers were there too. The lovely crew at Churchmouse Yarn and Tea sent over a beautiful flower arrangement and our friend Debie, owner of Serial Knitters in Kirkland, spoiled us with yummy treats. We were sad that Andrea Rangel was unable to make it but I wore my Pembroke Wrap in honor of her.
It was an awesome day and one we will never forget. Thank you for all your support!
Anna, Greg and the Tolt Yarn and Wool Team
