Visited the shop. It was open despite what the sign said. Gail greeted me warmly and could not do enough to please me. I told her what I was looking for, there were sales, plus I received a discount for purchasing over $25 worth of yarn. I've told my friend about the new owner and am looking forward to revisiting the shop..maybe even taking some classes. Thanks, Gail for keeping the shop open!!!! We need a nice yarn shop in our area.
