Hey, you out there
I've been mailing you with inspirations
It must not be what you need. ....and it's time to get off the fence.
Yeah, I know your'e busy, I know you've got summer plans. I get it. If you don't have a passion about knitting, but just pick it up now and then.....
.....you don't need my expertise.
This shop is NOT for the deal seeker. Yeah, I do have a few price deals, but that's not the point.
JSFA has fine fibers and really good quality stuff for the ENTHUSIAST.
More yet, you have available to you, a true fiber professional that dives into challenges, techniques, and really detail stuff that helps make knitting an ART. Your ART.
I'm actually writing a book about the stuff you can't learn ANYWHERE else. The things about how yarn is made and how it behaves when knit or crochet'd that most folks, even yarn store owners or renowned teachers don't know! Think 49+ years of curiosity with string.
So, do you want to learn more? Do you want a challenge? Do you have any passion?
I'm looking for the person who wants to know more about fiber arts. Someone who wants to create the best darn pot-holder out there and why it is the best.
***Why this one will burn your fingers to nubs and why this other one will insulate you from the heat.***
*** Why this sweater hangs out of shape and why this other one fits like a glove.***
What does this pattern really say and how to decipher the instructions to get what you want.
You know who you are out there, I share liberally with you, information you can't get without oodles of years in the thick of the industry.
Then there's the casual knitter. those of you who just enjoy the motions.
I am not saying that's wrong, but it's not the learner I am seeking today.
There's even some who have knit or crochet'd for years can learn a few things. Especially if you have continued to make the same things over and over.
In the comfort zone
Sure, I don't mind selling to the folks passing through, or to the mindless knitter,
H,e,c,k, I need mindless projects too.
Lord knows, we all get overwhelmed or need T.V. projects. Something to do in public when we are numb-ingly bored or in line.....
But' I'm looking today for the hungry fiber enthusiast "jedi in training" to pass on some serious learnin' to.
So if I've sparked you into "hey, I'd like som-o-dat" get ye in here, make an appointment for a class, ask questions.
The rest-o-ya, I'm here, but think about how living life not getting off the fence feels. It's just not exciting when you don't learn stuff. or better yo-sef.
Get excited! Get curious! Get here, or somewhere that makes you a little uncomfortable but will make you a better person.
