Yesterday was our Grand Opening – not sure about opening a yarn store in Central West NSW in 40 degree heat, but it was still a great day.

We had locals and tourists through, made some sales and had a wonderful opening night with our new friends.

The library is building up - we have a broad range of reference books as Shop Copies and the For Sale selection is growing.

We think the shop looks great and seems to be getting good feedback. There’s still lots of stock we need and are seeking feedback from our customers. It’s tempting to take home many of the beautiful items but we are really pleased to offer some special treats and collectibles in the store.

G’s daughter has been a great help in setting up our online store which we are sure will be a great supplement for business as well, so we won’t be dependent on foot traffic.

So now we’re open, the next stage is to start promoting ourselves, start some classes and drop in groups as well as add to the depth of stock in the shop.

Our new website – still in it’s infancy is

conventandchapelwool.com

It’s been a promising start and we are so excited about our future.
