Celebration Day!

Well, as I sit here and reflect, we have come upon another anniversary of The Wool Lady. Looking back to when we first began, there has been lots of growth in our wool studio. We doubled the size to now include wool yarns and other items that many fiber artists are seeking. Our wool room now includes lots of colors for all quilters and rug hookers to design their quilts or rugs, or perhaps needlefelt. We now offer knitting and crochet classes to teach all those new folks needing to learn new things. Go figure, I have even learned to do many new things to learn and teach our customers too. Reflecting back to the old days, yes we now have lots to offer these days. For our customers tomorrow, they shall be part of our festivities and join in our celebration. Let us see what the next year will bring forth to us, for we would never be here without all of our valued customers to keep us in business. We thank you for you your business and we could never exist without you! Thank you...

Just Making Sure... Please note that The Wool Lady will be closed from March 8th through the 10th, opening again for business on Monday, March 11th for business as usual. We are closing for the Temucula Rod Run this weekend, due to the traffic congestion, lack of parking and the street closures. Our shop will be open this week until Thursday, 10-5, see you after the Rod Run! Ruth-The Wool Lady

Rod Run Again?

Here we go again... We just celebrated the holidays like a couple days ago and here we are looking at the President's holiday this weekend! But a three day weekend is always a great thing, don't you think? The City just informed us that the Rod Run is here again, which means that we will be closing the studio the afternoon of March 8th through the 10th. We will re-open again for business as usual on Monday, March 11th. The following weekend the City will be sponsoring the Bluegrass Festival on March 16-17th. There will be some road closures around Main Street in Old Town Temecula, but you should be able to get through Old Town without a problem. Otherwise, all the other days should be easy shopping and eating anywhere in town. Come by and visit us before the hustle and bustle of March, because we should be receiving new yarns for all you knitters and crocheter's that are just too cool to describe. We shall place a candle at our windows to guide and welcome you in with all our new merchandise. Hoping to see you again soon!

It's that time of year again...

Hoping your holidays went well this week, with lots of family time, good eating and great memories with loved ones. Now it's onto the Christmas holidays which shall be here too soon. Shopping started this past Friday and Saturday with "Black Friday" and "Small Business Saturday". We thank you for supporting us and allowing us to visit with your family members, quite a pleasure visiting with several generations! Our two Blocks of the month are going strong with the embroidery patterns, and many folks completing their blocks quickly. We are also doing another challenge within the shop, a pattern by Stitchin' by the River, Lolita Newman's Massachusetts 54th pattern. What a strong and beautiful design. We have several customers and instructors designing the pattern in different styles, cannot wait to see all their artistic ideas. What excitement this pattern has shown in our studio from visitors and customers alike! Oh Ms. Newman, you would be impressed! With the holiday coming soon, we have suspended classes until Januany of 2013, to allow our instructors time-off and a well deserved vacation. Thank you for understanding this during the holidays. We also need to advise all our customers early, we shall be closing December 24th and 25th. This Saturday was the grand opening of two new businesses in our center, the first, a new deli called The Corner Bistro, and the second, Ellie's Creative Corner. Good luck to them both and lots of success! Well Folks, let us know what our studio should provide for the next year, perhaps we shall make some new changes? Our hand-dyed yarns have done very well and hoping to see all the yarns in our shop impress you too! Until next time, may all the woolers and quilters, knitters and crocheters, finish all those pressing projects before year's end!

Long, long, time ago... It has been so very long since I've had a chance to write and let everyone know how the shop has been lately. If you've recently visted the shop, then you know about all the changes, losses, and upcoming events in our town. We recently had our quilt show in Old Town Temecula, sponsored by the Temecula Valley of the Mist Quilt Guild in early October. What a successful and beautiful show it was for them, it was a show well done! They shared some of the best artistic and stunning works of art by their members. The best part, it was held on the Columbus Day Holiday, and our little town was busy with a Greek Festival, grape stomping at the wineries and the show. By the end of that holiday, folks must have been pretty exhausted! Now as we head towards the big holidays, many of you know they'll be here too soon, like next week, right??? By the end of this month, we shall have our Christmas parade in Old Town. Talk about rushing the holidays, the City set up their Christmas decorations in Old Town today...I'll wait until Thanksgiving! No need to rush out the month of November yet, haven't had my turkey and gravy yet! One of the changes in town was the closing of our quilt shop, Quilter's Coop. Many of you are stopping by and asking what happened to them, or did they move. They officially closed on Friday, November 2nd. But we still have Temecula Quilt Company and Pieced With Love, so folks continue supporting your local businesses so we may all continue to thrive. Another change in our shop is the addition of a new face, my husband, who retired after 30 years with a utility company. Congratulations to him! His co-workers named him "The Wool Daddy". Awesome. If he's around and you have any questions, perhaps Wool Daddy will provide you some assistance... Dinner time, gotta run, I will promise to write more often too!

What a great day for a grand opening and a quilt show in Old Town Temecula! It was a warn and sunny day with lots of quilts hanging on the antique buildings and the company of many quilters. It was a spectacular sight to see! We were fortunate to see our current customers and make accquaintances with many new ones. We provided a lunch special and served handmade chocolate strawberries for our grand opening, boy were they delicious! It was a fun day for all, with a successful grand opening and the quilt show, who can ask for more? We are hoping to see you stop by our studio and see our new place, let us know what you think...
