I am letting you know that I am no longer working at Baaad Anna's Yarn Store.
am going to miss it terribly, but I am moving on to work primarily on
my natural dyeing and artistic practice. I am still going to be teaching
natural dye classes there (check out their blog next week to see what
is coming for February and March!!) And I will also still be selling my
naturally dyed yarns there. It seems like right now is the time for me
to change my path. This is such a big and scary change!
I will still be found at the shop a lot (Seriously... my yarn
addiction is ridiculous!), and I love the crew there so much. Each
person that works at Baaad Anna's is such a creative, and wonderful
person. I also will want to see the faces that i've gotten to know over
the last three and a half years.
Anna and I have been friends long before the shop opened, and will
continue to be friends until forever. We met years ago though
anti-poverty organizing, and have been though so much. I am really
blessed to have Anna in my life.
I want to thank Anna, Hilary, Nicola, Sylvia, and Amy for being the
most amazing co-workers someone could ask for. I also want to thank
everyone i've met through the store. The community that has grown
because of Anna is incredible. Remembering what it was like to walk into
the shop for the first time in July 2009... and seeing it now is such
an incredible thing. The first month before opening we painted, and
stained all of the cubbies, and figured out the computer, and just
generally learned how a yarn store should run. It was such a big job
that was taken on by Anna, Luke, and a group of amazing friends. And
then opening day! So much has changed, but the heart is still the same.
It is a brilliant community of fibre people.
So with that, Thank you.
Thank you for the inspiring, exciting, and fibre filled ride.
And thank you for being such amazing friends.
With all of my love,
