Well, friends. The cat is out of the bag. It’s true. Candy Shoppe Yarns dyeing studio is closing its doors on December 30, 2019.
This is a decision that took six months to make. I love what I do here more than anyone will know, but sometimes, there are other things that need to take priority. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I began this yarn dyeing journey a year and a half ago, I had a big dream of what I wanted to create and accomplish. I wanted to create a business that filled people who passed through with the joy and wonder that only comes from the innocence of childhood; to help people forget the worries that accompany adulthood and focus on bright and happy things. Interestingly enough, I found I needed this as much, or more than anyone else. It filled a hole in my life, and helped to heal things that needed healing.
As I look back on what I have accomplished in such a short time since I began, I feel immensely proud. I feel that I have completed all that I set out to do, and more, and it is time to close the doors of my yarn-dyeing shoppe. I am so thankful for each of you who have supported my endeavors in so many ways. I feel honored to have met new friends and hear your stories.
I dreamed it, wished it, and did it. 💖
Lots of love,
