Dear Friends and customers,

The time has come for me to tell you that Yarn Forward is retiring. The leases at both stores are expiring this summer, and after a lot of soul searching I have decided that I am not prepared to commit to another five years in business. Now while we are sad to be going we can offer you a wonderful chance to shop at discounted prices. We are offering all of our current stock, with the exception of sewing machines and software at a 30% discount (in stores only). What a great opportunity to build your stash! I must however ask any of you who have yarn on hold at either store to please come by and purchase it before May 19th, at which time it will have to be returned to store inventory.

For now we will continue to sell our range of Husqvarna sewing machines and software as before, with our specials reflecting those being offered by Husqvarna for that month. Please be assured that we are working to ensure that you will receive our usual support and service for those products as before. However you may wish to take advantage of our sale to stock up on any in stock accessories etc at these great discount prices.

Sewing machine and serger servicing will continue on as normal while the store is still open.

Not only is our stock going on sale, but also many of our fixtures and fittings. In particular I am going to have a vast amount of Ikea Ivar shelving available, prices to be determined after a quick trip to Ikea by me this afternoon. Also some heavy duty industrial shelving that we have used for the stock room.

I will keep you informed of developments as the end draws nearer. Meanwhile I can only say how much we have enjoyed your patronage, and friendship over the last twenty plus years. It has been a pleasure serving you. However the end is not quite here yet, so we look forward to seeing you in the next few weeks.

Carol Manship.
