We have been meeting with reps, exploring locations, tweeking this blog, and creating our logo (our graphics design guy is amazing to work with). Next step, getting the software and conquering the Quickbooks monster!
These are the 26 Oregon yarn shops we have visited in the last year or so:

We visited 8 yarn shops in Portland this weekend! And, we managed to fit in Pier One and Ikea, too! We had a yummy dinner at Hot Pot & Sushi and awesome accomodations at the new Residence Inn by the airport. It was interesting to experience the different “flavors” of each shop that we visited. The stash of new yarns, patterns, and needles to try out is growing quickly!
