Here is Timmy mulling over the plans. Which he had to do. A lot. (Timmy is more used to building additions, gut renovations, and decks. Yarn and fabric stores...not so much!)
Here is Jose installing the adjustable fabric shelves. Jose's favorite song is Napoleon Dynamite. Drives Timmy crazy.
We had asked our incredible interior designer/architect Bobbi Davis (see previous post) to come up with a system of displaying our samples in the store. She of course came back with an amazing design for hanging multiple samples, almost creating a gallery effect. We love it because we think the things people make are works of art and deserve to be displayed as such. Timmy, a trained cabinet maker in his native Ireland, built these beautiful display spaces. He is such a talented craftsman (and climbs mountains for charity in his spare time!).
Timmy did a beautiful job on the carpentry in the store. It is hard to capture all the fine details in a photo. His work and attention to detail are evident throughout the store. We are so grateful.
We are almost finished with the build out of the store and are getting ready to stock shelves with our inventory! Stay tuned for details on our opening date. Hint: you should be able to shop at JP Knit & Stitch before the holidays...
