POULTNEY - Mary Lee Harris is excited about celebrating her Third year as owner of Stitchy Women in Poultney. To celebrate, she is inviting all the friends we know and friends we've yet to meet to join her on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for refreshments, third year anniversary specials, drawings and giveaways.
In reflecting on the last three years, Harris said that retiring from 40 years in office management and accounting to running a yarn shop was "a wonderful idea."
Harris has enjoyed this time meeting new friends, learning new knitting techniques, including an attempt at spinning, and expanding her hobby to an occupation. She notes the benefit of retirement is enjoying the company of friends while knitting up a new creation and being surrounded by beautiful fibers inspiring new ideas; so many yarns and now there is time.
Stitchy Women carries a large inventory of yarns, patterns, and needles perfect for all levels of fiber artists, from beginners to experts. We also offer classes and individual lessons as requested and invite all to join us every Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. for a "sit and knit".
