For three or four months now I have been furiously working on a new and very large project, and I am delighted to be able to finally announce it to you! Thanks to the loyalty of my customers and the overwhelming response to the business concept, Knit-a-Gogo has expanded greatly in the past year. As a result, I have been feeling more and more pressure to provide you all, my knit & crochet community, with a permanent home. So it is with great pleasure that I announce:
Knit-a-Gogo is expanding and will now offer community, classes, parties, events and YARN! My new retail store, fibre space, will provide the best selection and highest quality fiber, needles, hooks and notions at the best possible prices.
Where will it be?!
The new retail location is at 102 N. Fayette Street in Alexandria, VA, across from Five Guys and around the corner or a few blocks from three other craft shops: Potomac Bead Company, Paint your Own Pottery and Knit Happens. It is my hope that with my shop, Alexandria will become metro area’s crafting district, supplying you with all of your craft supply needs.
Classes in the District and Arlington will continue as always but the three previous Alexandria locations will be rolled into the new shop, which has dedicated and private classroom space. (construction starts soon!)
When will you open?! I hope to open in July!
Will you still offer those amazing workshops and retreats? Well of course!!! Now there will be even more! Plan on seeing a variety of in-store events to join the three or four annual workshops or retreats that will be at unique venues around the city.
What yarn will you carry? Well stay tuned! the blog will soon become have more and more information on what is arriving and how the construction project is going at the retail site…
So lets recap…what has Danielle been doing since January? Getting engaged, planning a wedding in Nevis, planning a wedding reception in Pittsburgh, running Knit-a-Gogo, working as a consultant in the city, and planning a retail store!!! So now you know why I have been somewhat MIA and slightly crazier than usual….
