Being in business for 20 years is not to be sneezed at, no matter the type of business. But small businesses especially, and doubly especially, yarn stores, are not always long-lasting enterprises. To celebrate 20 years, is very special.
Janet and her Mom, Katy-Lu,
All-too-kind Janet had sent out a customer email saying that previous-employee Brenda, (Janet always referred to me as her 'fearless knitter') would be at the party. As a result, some of my London hiking, knitting buds dropped by. Good to see you Diane (Trish - sorry I forgot the camera when you were in.)
New friend, blog-reading, sock- knitting fan, Deb stopped in to meet me and say "Hi."
There was cake
and cake cutting ceremonies.
New staff to meet
and the 'one -in-every-crowd' member of the staff who never wants her picture taken.
Sorry, Dianne. I couldn't resist.
Add to all this, a well-stocked store,
my dear friend Patti-Ann who shared so many Mondays with me at the store,
and amidst the revellers a Learn To Crochet class
and you might have already guessed - as I announced to Fred as soon as I opened the door - "I. Had. So. Much. Fun."
Thanks Janet for the invitation, and may you continue to sell yarn in good health for another 20 years.
