Happy birthday, Hillsborough Yarn Shop!

Five years ago today, Anne officially opened the Hillsborough Yarn Shop. For me, as well as for many others, the shop is more than a shop. It’s the reason I (re)learned to knit, a skill and passion that has become a very important part of my life. A Hillsborough native, I noticed the new business on Churton Street back in 2006 and thought: perhaps I’d like to knit? Five years later, I feel strange if a day goes by without at least a few knitted rows. The shop has since become many things to me: a source of inspiration, a place for meeting fascinating people, and (lucky me!) my job. A big, resounding thank you to Anne for the welcoming, inspiring space she’s created!

As Anne is quick to point out, our customers have at least as much to do with our success as she does. As a thank you to all of you, we’re having a sale and celebration this weekend. We’re offering a 15% discount on absolutely everything in the shop, with the exception of classes, and that which is already discounted. Come in anytime this Friday, Saturday or Sunday, October 21st, 22nd, or 23rd, and we’ll pour you a glass of champagne, offer you a cupcake, and take 15% off the price of your purchase. Looking forward to seeing you there!
