Fall is my favourite time of year – the changing colour of the leaves and crispness of the air inspires me to leap headfirst into my endless palette of yarn and knit something awesome! Our wardrobe changes and we can once again break out our knitted garments and start working on new ones! The new yarns start pouring into the store and the possibilities are endless!
There will be another very large change happening this Fall at Mad About Ewe. After much contemplation, Dorothy has come to the decision that it’s time to leave us in favour of retirement. Saturday Sept 30 will be Dorothy’s last day of work.
Dorothy has been an integral member of the staff here for the last 19 years – we’ve been in business for 20! Her artistry with a felting needle cannot be matched; her sage words of wisdom oft quoted and her deep love and knowledge of knitting was shared freely! Dorothy’s creativity, amazing eye for colour and sense of humour will be missed by us all.
Please join us on the last Saturday of the month to wish her a fond farewell. I know that there will be a lot of knitting and felting in her future!

We have added a new drop-in class especially for the crocheters out there. Starting September 26th Darlene will be available Tuesday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:00 pm for a one hour drop-in to handle your crochet problems and teach those who wish to learn how to crochet. Please call ahead.

Happy Knitting and Learning
