Nancy Sells NW Handspun Yarns to Meg

Yes, I'm selling the shop -- to Meg!! Maybe you knew this, but this is the BIG news for us right now! She will take over and keep things the same, but add her "spin" on it, to create another something wonderful! I'm going back to work with my husband, Jim part time (commercial real estate), spending more time with him and my ailing, isolated Mom. AND DOING MORE FIBER ARTS, both personal art and teaching! It's about time! I'm looking forward to this transition and Meg is too! We are really enjoying working together to make this happen! The change will take place about September 1st.

NW handspun Yarns was started by me (Nancy)10 years ago, with a passion for the fiber arts and a desire to see spinning, weaving and knitting continue and thrive in the Bellingham area, and surrounding region. With the success of NW Handspun Yarns and the vision of new owner, Meg, the shop will continue to offer a wide variety of classes, spinning wheels and looms, other fiber art related products and services. Plans include expanding the quantity of yarns and other fiber related products and gifts currently offered.

Nancy and Meg have been long time friends, 15 years (!) and have worked together at the yarn shop for the last 5 years.

All our favorite "Yarn associates" will continue to work at the shop -- Margaret, Debbie and Kyle -- and Nancy from time to time!

Please join us for our OPEN HOUSE on Friday, October 8, 5:00 – 8:00 in celebration of this ownership transition. At the yarn shop, 1401 Commercial Street, Bellingham, WA 98225 (360) 738-0167.
