For those of you who aren’t on our email list or following us on social media, here’s a quick version of the changes going on at Twisted Yarns in Spring, Texas:
I (Janet Russell, current owner) chose to not renew my lease at the Twisted Yarns shop location in Spring, Texas. My lease expires June 30, 2019, and I am liquidating everything in the shop, including fixtures, inventory, and other business-related assets. I will retain the Twisted Yarns name and all the associated social media accounts, and within the week, the URL will be here at WordPress as a fiber- and craft-related blog covering yarn shops and indie dye artists in Texas. I’m anticipating a lot of field trips in the Fall, but will take a long summer off to spend time with my family and travel.
Among the things I missed the most when business ownership became my full-time job were writing, teaching, and knitting. I’m finally reclaiming space for all of those things as yarn store ownership is winding down. However, I will be open through June 1 at 3:00 p.m. (Tuesday through Friday are 12-5 pm). From June 3 through the remainder of the month, I will be open by appointment only for those who need to pick up any fixtures or merchandise they’ve purchased from Twisted Yarns.
I’ve been thinking about long-time Twisted Yarns customers who are sad about the loss of their knitting community and would like to reassure you that after a short break, there will be another yarn shop in August in the same space I am vacating! Meanwhile, I’ve spoken to both Chris at The Social Knitwork and Doris at Yarn Store Boutique to introduce myself to them, and to let them know I’m sending customers their way. Please click the links I’ve provided and go visit one or both of them! They’re also participating in the Houston-area yarn crawl that begins August 19: The Yarn Trail.
Finally, I cannot thank you enough for supporting Twisted Yarns, and helping to provide a welcoming place for others to learn, gather, and share. It’s been an absolute privilege to have owned Twisted Yarns the last five years — I’m so grateful for the friends I’ve made as a result of our mutual love of fiber.
