Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009!

Phew, that was quite the sale last night! We sure are going out with a bang! Today will be a mad dash to get all the parcels packed and sent out (hopefully most of them will get to you before Christmas). Then from tomorrow, we are closed for the holidays. We re-open (with a shop update, including some much anticipated new yarn) on January 4th 2009.

I’m planning a few days of r&r this week, because the last few weeks have been manic, and then we’re plunging straight into more house remodelling. I know, we should be making the most of the time off, but since our plans involve major disruption of the stock room/office, it’s sensible for us to do it while everything is shut down. So while you are eating, drinking, and generally making merry, think of us knocking down walls, painting, wallpapering, carpeting, and so on (but don’t feel too sorry for us, I’m hoping we’ll be finished it all within a week, so that we can put our feet up for the rest of the holidays). I’m looking forward to showing you more photos of our nest when I return in January.

So, until then, thank you all so much, much more than I can say, for your support of Posh Yarn in 2008. It hasn’t been the easiest of years for us, but your friendship, kindness, interest, and supportiveness has kept us going through the difficult bits, and cheered us on during the happier bits. You make our business an absolute pleasure, and we treasure each and every one of you. Take good care of yourselves while we’re away, enjoy peace and happiness and plenty of knitting time! We’ll see you in 2009…….

XXXXXX, Dee & Tony

  1. Merry Christmas! You definitely deserve some time off. You’ve given a lot of knitters a lot of pleasure this year.

    In case you do have a moment to spare, you might enjoy my boyfriend’s cat’s new blog …

    Don’t show it to your babies though because then they’ll each want their own blog!

  3. have a great break Dee – and don’t forget the “before” pics this time, they’ll make it feel even more rewarding afterwards, Paula x

  4. Have a wonderful break (after the house remodelling!) and I can’t wait for my Posh parcel! x

  5. Have a wonderful break both of you, despite the house remodelling! Thank you both for all the wonderful yarn you have offered and all the hard work that has gone into its production.
