A Window of Yarn Goodness

New experiences are the best aren’t they!  Well, I guess it depends on the experience.  Last week Dianne and I had a fun one, we were graciously given the opportunity for All Dyed Up to display our items in a window on the main street of Napanee.

Dianne had a vision for the space.

There is some yarn in front with a few of Dianne’s hand sewn bags up behind our sign.  (Please pardon the window glare in all of the photos.)  It was fun putting everything together to create the display, at one point I was crouched down in the window placing some yarn and Dianne said to me, “Edith look up, there are two ladies peering in the window.”  Sure enough there were two ladies with their faces pressed to the glass checking out our display.  Dianne said it was a good thing I was crouched over with my behind facing in rather than out!!! Yikes!

We can’t thank Rennie Hutzler enough for sharing her awesome window with us.  We thank Rennie as well for providing us with a fun afternoon together, the indescribable feeling of seeing our creations in a display window, and the joy we got when we saw people taking a moment to look while going by.  Thank you Rennie.

You never know in this life what new experience is right around the corner, for us and All Dyed Up, this was a great one!
