When my lys, Red Needle Yarns announced it's closing earlier in the year and I told ya'll about many of you guys from NY wanted to know if I knew her future locale, I did not, but told you I would let you know when I did.
Well, Mickey (the owner, a wonderful person, you will LOVE her) emailed me yesterday and this is what she said:
We have secured a temporary location for the YARN OUTLET (discount
yarns) at 3320 Lawson Blvd in Oceanside, NY. 516-255-8312
Official opening is August 21 at 11 a.m.
If the store is anything at all as it was here (and i bet it is) ya'll are so going to love it!!! Should you stop in tell her Rebecca (with crutches) and Lonnie sent you...she LOVES my husband! She told me that he is one of a kind, the only husband, in her 30 years of the fiber biz, that she has seen come in and pick up things for his wife, knew what he was looking for, went directly to it, pick it up and buy it. And he patiently and happily would shop along with me in her whenever were in her shop!
I'm so jealous of ya'll, you lucky knittters/crocheters will have a great shop....and, once established she has classes with teachers such as Nicky Epstein! So, when ya go, buy something in my honor!
