Window displays now showing...

 I am so impressed with the work of this knitter, Janet Duerst, 1920-2013. She knit these in the 1940's and I would wear any one of them this moment, 70 years later! What an artist!

 A closer look at the top to the suit below...

and a little pastel reminder about joining us for Tea at 3 sometime soon.
Slippers will greet you on the way in!

The latest new stock...

 Today's delivery included sheep adorning an umbrella!
 At the Molson Quilt Show this past weekend I found these paper-pieced greeting cards!
 More of the hand created greeting cards and a crocheted 'tea service' gifted to me by a lovely weaver person!
Gift box floss and boutique collection floss.  
 Icy blue selection of embroidery floss and a couple Christmas reds and green.
 Notions and pattern board on the quilting side of BHnS.
 I went to an estate sale this weekend and found this lovely sample for the store. Doesn't everyone start their crochet career learning the Granny Square? I sure did!
            Found these vintage pillow cases at the estate sale, pre-stamped, ready to embroider.
 The humongous 8' sign that will be perched VERY securely on the roof of the shop.
 Rick and I wrangled the couch onto the truck and into the store this morning. The sitting area is now complete! Bring your wheels, hooks or needles and try the comfy furniture out!
 Tea cups all polished up, displayed and ready for action Saturday!
 The Vault is coming right along, just need to add a couple of lamps for much needed lighting, and a comfortable chair or two.
We are getting there!


End of August? Already?

August 2013 has come and gone? I had no idea setting up a 1200 sq. ft. shop would take a month-and more! Here are pix of the latest progress. And, ready or not, Bell, Hook and Spindle will officially, quietly, open its door this coming Saturday, September 7th! Please excuse the remaining clutter, and perhaps a slight gap or two in stock. I will receive two large orders in the shop tomorrow, and have yet to finalize one more 'biggie' order for the Quilting side of the store.
In honor of opening, The Charlotte Connection Spinners will come and christen the comfy seating area. They are bringing 'goodies' to snack on and I am providing my famous 5 gallons of ice tea. I may try my hand at the bloomin' tea as well, for my mentor/friend Joann (who used to own a bakery) is bringing a selection of 3 tea cookies, one of which, she told me, is lemon flavored. I might be too busy munching to actually spin?
So, if you have plans to come and see Bell, Hook and Spindle, this Saturday would be a taste of what we will soon be. If you want to wait until I know how to run the till, serve the tea, all the shelves are stocked, and the quilting machine is up and running, wait until mid-October when we will be Grand Opening celebrating with open house, catered snacks, sales and specials. If you would like to be notified by email, just send me your info and I will be sure and let you know a couple weeks beforehand, when we set the date.
Send email to: weber.lindy@gmail.com
 Cascade Yarn is loaded in the bins.
 Rick, since this pic, has the top on the check out counter. We will finish by tomorrow!
Class offerings will be on the wall with date and cost. There will Block of the Month activity as well.
Hope you visit soon!
