Here We Go!!

Okay, we are now set with our new website design!  Check it out.  Dru has been very busy.  Let us know what you think of the layout- compliments and ideas to make it easy to navigate.

!. Bus to Stitches Midwest- We still have some seats for this annual knitting pilgrimage to Chicago.  Seats are now $55.00  You can call the shop or send in your check with your email and cell number.  If you send in a check I will email you when I recieve it.  As it looks right now we will leave from the shop, so parking could be an issue.  If you can carpool, that would be appreciated.  

2. FIBER FESTIVAL SALE- Sunday,  July 12 from 12- 2. there were many people who couldn’t get to the first one last Saturday, so I added a Sunday.  Plus, even though we sold a lot last saturday, will still have tons of goodies!  The last FIBER FESTIVAL date will be Saturday, July 25 from 10-12.

3. Were you waiting for Chai Goo needles and parts?  They are here!  Come and get them!

4. Next Overnighter- Saturday July 25!  Starts at 7:30 

5. There are just 2 spots left for the Beginning Weaving Class next Saturday.  Cost is just $40 plus material ( $20.00) 

      

A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL THE HELPERS LAST SUNDAY!  I COULD NEVER HAVE DONE IT ON MY OWN!  LOOK HOW PRETTY IT ALL LOOKS!

   
 
Unicorn Parallelogram ( from Stephen West) Shawl Group will meet on Saturday July 11 from 2-4 pm.  You can get the pattern on Ravelry.  We still have a good selection of Unicorn Tails from Madelinetosh.  I am going to use all grey and creams with a runner of hoops for the med. grey.

   

  

In the Hood- I just got a post on facebook from Wildwood Market ( down the street)  that Pearson Farms from Georgia will be there on July 8 and July 29 from 11-1 with fresh Peaches!!  A 25 lb box of peaches will run you $39.  You might want to get together with a few people to split up a box!  I have to say that I am excited.  

HAVE A FUN AND SAFE HOLIDAY!

Happy 4th of July

Upcoming Events

One Skein, Two Skeins, Three Skeins and More

Today we successfully inventoried the shop for the new register system. Susan wants to make sure we thank all those that helped today. It was a massive job…and we finished it in record time.

We have an ace business consultant, Nancy, working to input all the information into our new “Square” Point of Sale system. Its an Apple powered product that will help us accomplish a lot of things we’ve been wanting to do.

The new streamlined register is in, and we’ve been using it for the past couple weeks. We’ll also have the option during sales to have “mobile registers” walking around the store to help you with your purchases and minimize wait times for the checkout line.

“SAVE A TREE, EMAIL A RECEIPT”

Also a new option is we can text or email your receipts to you from the register or our mobiles.

Coming Soon…A Brand New Look

Dru is working hard to redesign our site. Making it more compliant with Google best practices for mobile devices. We’re moving to a new hosting company, Massive Ant, in Tampa. They specialize in WordPress sites and are working with us to super power the new site. We’ll also be moving our subscription list and self hosting our emails, so now we’ll be able to deliver all the content from our blog to your email boxes based on your request. The goal is to have the site design finished and hosted at its new spot this coming holiday weekend. So, we might have some downtime while we re-point the address. If you try to log on this coming weekend and can’t reach the site; know we’re not down permanently…just in the process of moving.

Online Shopping

Nancy is also working with us to finally to set up our online shopping cart, also powered by Square. We are looking to have that up by the end of the summer. She’s a real go-getter and we have no doubt she’ll have us up and online in no time. Be excited….be very very excited. We Are!

Fiber Festival

Saturday’s Fiber Festival was a great success. Susan is adding an extra day, Sunday, JULY 12th from Noon to 2:00 p.m., for the second day of our Fiber Festival. So if you couldn’t make it this Saturday, please come join us for another chance at picking up some great items. “One Knitter’s Stash is another Knitter’s Treasure!” Our third and final day for the Festival will be July 25th from 10:00 a.m. to Noon.

Lots of things happening at Mass Ave Knit Shop…stop by and check it all out!
