Autumn flash sale and winter hours

Leave a comment

Although you wouldn’t think it after the beautiful warm day we had yesterday, we are now well into autumn in Melbourne and the shop has been busy with Melbourne’s cool-weather knitters (unlike the die-hards who knit all year round!) looking for serious winter projects… So it’s time for us to return to our winter trading hours. As of this coming Monday, April 7th, we will be open from Monday to Saturday from 10-5. I If you’ve visited the shop over the last couple of weeks, you’ll have noticed that things are looking lovely here… The feedback from our lovely customers has been overwhelmingly positive which is really reassuring- you never know how people respond to change! We have one more change in the works, possibly the one that will have the biggest impact on how the shop looks and functions, and that is the installation of new shelving and storage. Most of the work we’ve done has been around shop hours but this final phase will require us to dismantle the shelving and create a big stack of yarn in the middle of the shop, which is going to make helping customers a bit tricky. Unless the shop is just too chaotic, we aim to stay open amidst the installation, so we ask you to be a bit more patient that usual! We hope to avoid closing the shop on any regular trading days but we unfortunately won’t know the installation date until a few days beforehand- we will announce any closures here, on Instagram and Twitter and via the shop newsletter, so we encourage you to follow us via one of these channels to keep informed about any interruptions!

As a celebration of autumn, for this month’s flash sale, we have reduced all Louisa Harding yarns and pattern books by a huge 40%! The rich, warm colours and textures of Louisa’s winter yarns (from 100% silks and chenilles to alpaca blends) come into their own at this time of year and would work beautifully for cosy cardigans, jackets and accessories. This is the very end of our Louisa Harding stock and we will be replacing the entire line with lovely new Australian, European and American yarns- so, if you’ve had your eye on any of the lovely Louisa Harding yarns or pattern books, now is the time to buy them…
