When we opened our doors in 2014, we had no major expectations. We opened a yarn store so we could share the love of fiber arts with and give back to our hometown. We figured, we’d give it a try and see what happens. We chose a small shop on Main Street for the explicit reason that if this endeavor needed to end at any time, it could be done easily, which is why we carried a lower inventory but offered so much in the way of special orders. We had hoped, and planned, to move into a bigger space this summer – somewhere we could carry many more labels, offer more space for groups, bigger areas for classes and more. Plans have changed for us.
With so many LYS closings in the last two years, we would not let our little shop scatter to the wind. We had to figure out how to adapt and still provide exemplary service to our very loyal customers who have become our friends. We don’t see this as a challenge – we see this as an opportunity.
We are taking the opportunity to take some time off – in the storefront sense, anyway. We have already partnered with our friends at the Wauconda Library to continue classes and lessons right here in Wauconda, and we will continue to meet at In The Loop at the Community Center.
The storefront may be gone, but Unraveled WILL remain.
Words cannot describe the utmost thanks I have for you, our customers. You believed in us from day one and you have continued to do so in the last two years. I am so very grateful for you all and I can’t wait to give you a bigger and better LYS experience in the very near future. Fiber is a passion, and I am honored to help ignite that passion for you. It has been a privilege to be a part of such an amazing community.
With the utmost appreciation,
Jessica LoBue, Unraveled Yarn Shop
