We are OPEN!

Somehow, my last post announcing the re-opening of the Knitting Asylum got lost in the blogosphere. I have not been able to figure out, even through the nice folks at Blogger, how this happened.

But we are most definitely OPEN. As in, selling yarn and stuff.

Our news:

The Knitting Asylum now dwells within the confines of Fleur Du Jour, a retail co-op in which several vendors and artists share the rent and expenses.

Fleur du Jour is located at 447 Third Street, Suite B, in downtown Baton Rouge.

Knitting Asylum is located inside Fleur du Jour. It's like a small department store, and, in fact, is located in a newly renovated section of the old Kress department store at Third and Main.

Store hours, for now, are 9-5 Monday through Friday and 9 till noon on Saturdays.

Several vendors work together, so I am not present all day every day, but I am generally there most days around mid-day. If I am not present, one of the other vendors will be happy to assist you with your yarn or fiber purchase. No longer do you have to worry about arriving at the shop to find no one present because an emergency came up with my family's needs. Someone will always be there during posted hours.

We will be adding new spindles, roving and new yarns after the first of the year.

Photos will follow. Please tell your friends. I think you will like the new space, and I will be offering classes and other fun activites in the spring, so stay posted!

Hope to see you soon,

Dez
