Today I drove the 45 minutes from my home to Warkworth just north of Auckland to see for myself.
Robyn Egge Yarns is everything you want your LYS to be, bright, charming, elegant, just like it's owner. Everything on display is neat, tidy and accessible, there is no clutter, extra stock is neatly tucked away out of sight, pattern books are easy to find and the store is part of the Ravelry LYS programme so online patterns will be available soon.
When I walked it I was almost overcome with the loveliness of the shop, the clean crisp white, of the walls and units, the polished concrete floor, the overwhelming gorgeousness of the feature wallpaper in a striking bird print, the attention to detail and the seamless logo/marketing/theme.
And Introduction to circular needles on Saturday September 28th
(unfortunately, this class is also full, but once again, register your interest)
We discussed the possibility of a Finishing class, buttonholes, bind offs, seaming etc. I am very keen, so we will look at that with a view to November.
I'm so excited to be working with Karen, she has created an absolute oasis.
Two of the girls visited me today, I haven't seen them since before KAN, which means I haven't seen Isla in over two weeks, she has grown more hair!
Kisses from Mummy and Auntie Blaise (in blue) they are all so delightful!
