Opening in January!




Yes, the build out of JP Knit & Stitch is complete. Yay! Now, the fun part begins. We (I mean Tony and Antonio) moved all our inventory up from the basement and we are hard at work loading shelves and learning our inventory management system. It is clear to us now that we were crazy to think we could open before the holidays. As a partnership, we have always been the glass half full kind of people. Optimism and a sunny outlook have been our calling card (I'm not sure we could have realized our vision any other way), but reality in the form of an enormous quantity of yarn boxes and fabric bolts have forced us to accept that a January opening is more realistic, even preferable. So that's what we're going to do: slow down, take a break, enjoy the holidays with our families, stock shelves at a leisurely pace with lots of breaks for "feel this skein" or "check out this pattern" as we re-aquaint ourselves with our inventory (holed up these many months in our basement in water/air tight boxes). We think JP Knit & Stitch will be the better for it.

p.s. as always, stay tuned here for sneak peaks and updates as we fill our shelves with color + texture + all things crafty.
