CRAFTED IN RAPID, a new adventure in hand craftedness
Ah, yes, I am still making up words. My poor mother, who was a High School English Teacher is probably rolling her eyes at me from heaven right now! At least I am not making up math, just words!
We have a new adventure coming up at C R Yarn. We have opened up our back room, which used to be full of stock and other things (too messy to talk about), and are converting it to a vendor booth area. We have all hand crafted items from the Rapid City, SD area, with the exception of Chinook Winds Bison which comes from Bozeman, MT and Fuzzbee Yarns which comes from Minneapolis, MN.
We are so excited about this venture into more hand craftedness (sorry Mom). We will have hand crafted spindles, rovings, batts, yarn, hand woven rugs, metalworks, soaps, lotions, doll patterns, doll clothes (knitted and sewn), Native American jewelry, Silver jewelry, bison blend yarns, handspun yarns and more. We plan on opening as soon as possible, watch facebook and this blog for the actual opening date.
Our desire is to give hand crafters space so that they can share the beautiful items that they make with others. We want a designated place that people can come to and see exactly the workmanship that is put into these items. We love anything hand crafted and are certain that you will too!
You may come into C R Yarn and C the "hole in the wall" aka "door" right now, but the goodies won't be in the booths for a little while longer.
We love our customers and want to give you all something special along with our yarn. Thanks for shopping with us and learning with us, we soooooo appreciate you all.
