Patti reminded us why a Local Yarn Shop is different than any other retail store. In the crush of business we sometimes forget how lucky we are to have Knit1 and the women who live and breathe yarn. Kathy, Lynn, Marty and Ann love to help others accomplish their knitting dreams. It is a joy for me to watch as they encourage and support. But sometimes we may take it for granted. So what happened this weekend was a gift.
Patti signed up for a class using the brioche stitch – a technique that requires concentration and patience. A really good teacher is a plus. Patti brought her concentration and patience. Kathy provided the rest. It was a success and Patti left happy.
We did not realize how happy until we got her note. It made our day, our week, our month. It is good to remember that a really good local yarn shop is about more than really good yarn! It was reaffirming to be reminded that we are all that.
Thanks Patti – the feeling is mutual.
