Newsletter, shop changes, help nights

It's Monday morning, and I've just released the October Update newsletter. (At our shop we issue newsletters twice per month.) After writing 40-odd of those newsletters it's a challenge not to repeat myself most months, but this month was easier than most. There's a lot going on at our little shop.

We're reorganizing to feature new and different products, we're putting great stuff on sale, and we're extending our hours. It's our busiest time of the year. We love seeing all our friends cozy up at the fireplace and discuss their latest projects. Plus, the baked goods are flowing fast and furious. Amish bread, brownies, cookies, lemon bars, homemade chocolates, and more have graced our coffee table in the last couple of weeks, and it keeps getting better as it gets colder outside. (Diets are on hiatus in the knitting circle, as you can see!) Gomez, our store owner's parrot, is happy to receive offerings, too. As he crunches his treats, he offers occassional commentary to the customers whom he assumes are his adoring fans.

Perhaps the most exciting news - We are bringing wine and cheese help nights to Karma. These help nights have taken off up and down the east coast, and been featured in several knitting magazines and blogs. For a flat fee, customers come and spend the evening with a glass of wine, some friends, and get their questions answered. Help night visitors will have access to special sales and private events. The store will be closed to all non-participants for each help night. In our new, spruced up digs, we will have a great time!
