Say Goodbye to three partners and
Hello to three new partners
Linda, Sue, and Urmi are retiring from the shop at the end of February. We will miss all of the skills, love, sweat, and tears they brought to HOKC. But they promise to still come in and knit and hang out. Sue will still run her finishing business. She will set up pick up and delivery times. Linda will still make her beautiful stitch markers. And Urmi will continue to help us source unique and lovely bags from India.
Coming into the business are new partners are Diane Hara, Brigid Kumler, and Roxanne Chavez.
Diane is not only a lovely knitter but she is growing leaps and bounds in her weaving skills. She will help Peggy with classes and filling in when Peggy travels. Diane also has a physical therapy background and is looking forward to teaching classes to help knitters avoid pain.
Brigid has and insatiable curiosity in knitting and crochet. She looks forward to teaching some unique classes -- like knitting with wire and beads. We are happy to have one more partner that is skilled in crochet! I am also curious if Brigid will bring a chemist skill to the store...
Roxanne is a beautiful knitter and brings a great deal of knitting expertise to HOKC. She would like to begin designing and we cannot wait to see what she comes up with. Her company name is Big Beautiful Women patterns and looks forward to helping others adjust patterns to fit their bodies. Roxanne is also Bilingual and we hope she will help teach classes in Spanish.
February is American Heart Month
Did you know that heart disease kills more women than any other disease?
Last change to pick up these cute kits. There are only a handful left. Remember, 25% of all proceeds are donated to the American Heart Association. One of our customers just had a heart attack but did not know it until she reached the hospital! We definitely need more research for women!
