The Big Secret is Out!!!!

I can finally make the big announcement!
The Lancaster Yarn Shop is opening a BIG NEW shop in Intercourse!
and Maggie French Folk Art will be there!!!!

Visiting Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania? Well, beginning
THIS Monday March 2, you can see my art, especially knitting inspired furniture, right in the heart of the tourist area, Intercourse, at Kitchen Kettle Village. The new shop is located on Rte 340 and is diagonally across from the famous fabric store, "The Old Country Store" and the People’s Place Quilt Museum and The Museum Shop
. It's also next to the beautiful Village Quilts!!!

My biggest thanks of all to Wendy for letting me paint for her shop, and for Rachel-Marie www.knittydirtygirl.com for inspiring my painting with her beautiful yarn. I have been painting these last couple months for the new shop, and it's been so fun. See the pic above for some of the things I'm bringing to the store. I've used my brightest colors and my coolest and sweetest sayings.

Lancaster Yarn Shop will maintain the beloved downtown Lancaster Prince Street Location. However, this new store in Intercourse makes it possible for thousands of tourists from all over the world to see what wonderful yarns LYS carries!

Including new stock! Alpaca, Addi Turbo knitting needles, Lantern Moon needles, Knit 1 Crochet 2, Harrisville yarns, Manos Del Uraguay yarn, Ty Dy sock yarn, new sock yarn, new buttons, new kits and magazines...

The new location is open Mon. - Sat. 9-5. 3519 Old Philadelphia Pike, Kitchen Kettle Village, Intercourse, PA 17534.
Opening Day is March 2nd!!!!

Thanks for popping over to my blog and letting me know about the Eastern Market and the Faerie Fest. :)

YAY for the new shop and congrats on your cute items being there! I actually wanted to buy some yarn this weekend - something with a lil sparkly in it - maybe I'll check out the Prince St shop.

wow, that is exciting...a new yarn shop...will you be working there? It is great that in the state of the economy lancaster seems to be doing alright...at least the iNdie arts.
Oh and you are absolutely right...Mr. Meanie from my blog absolutely doesn't like me for whatever reason...just today he comes in my office and comments on my rug " looks like someone ran barney over in here." I just laugh at him because he is not worth any more of my energy (lol) :).
All your redecorating seems to be working out well...we will be redoing our living room pretty soon...and thanks to you...I have signed up for freecycle here in Providence and I love it

Hope all is well
Love and Hugs
