Things have aligned for us to move the week of July 12th. We will be open during the move since we know many of you will be in the area that week and we don't want to disappoint you! Since we're moving close by we'll be doing this in stages and it may mean that you'll have to visit both our current location and the new one during your visit :-). If you need to make an appointment for a private lesson or one-on-one help we'll need to schedule it for another week. I do expect this to be a week of controlled chaos - but we all need a little more fun in our lives!
The paint color has been picked - seafoam - and the walls will get painted this coming week and the carpet will go in as well. If you're a fan of Lakeside Linens the color is a lighter version of Seastorm - a mix of blue, green and grey. With a dark ceiling in the new place we need a lighter color on the walls than we have now and it's time for a new color scheme. We'll still use purple as an accent color but the main color will be seafoam.
If you'd like to help out in the move just give us a call. Most of the grids, our fabric drawers and such get shrink wrapped so we don't have to pack them in any traditional sense. We do have to pack the fabric cabinet contents, the display cabinets and some other things. But even the button drawers get a layer of bubble wrap in each drawer than shrink wrapped. Since most of the grids are on rollers we just roll them into the truck. Those on the wall get 2 placed back-to-back and shrink wrapped. One person can lift two of them shrink wrapped even with thread. We'll hire some big burly moving people to help with all this but it's going to be all hands on deck for the week!
Once we're moved we'll be holding a blow out sale in the old location for any fixtures, furniture, merchandise or other items we aren't using in the new location. I'll post details on that when the date for the sale is set. I am already putting some merchandise on sale now - we have a number of needlepoint canvases marked down 20%, 30% and 40% so stop by and take a look.
With lots of parking and lovely new space we hope you'll enjoy visiting us in the new location and that if you're in the area you'll still come by the week of the 12th. We won't make you pack if you don't want to :-).
