Road Construction - latest

It seems that construction is changing day by day in front of the store. As of Saturday afternoon the city opened 78th street. You can now come into the store on the dirt road following the cones or park along 78th street. The city has also posted Business Access signs. Of course this may all be changed when we go back to work on Tuesday - but we hope 78th will stay open through the July 4th sale. Dont forget that the Knit In will still be on
Thursday evening during the sale - so come and knit and look over the sale selection.

Thanks and we will keep you as up to date as we can.

The road in front of the store has now been torn up - so much for notice from the city!  Knit continues to Happen!  While it looks like a mess, there is still access to the store off of Indian School Road.  All traffic has been moved to the north side of the street.  You cannot turn onto 78th street from Indian School.  However, you can turn left onto Kalarama which is one block to the west of the store.  From there you can travel on the dirt in front of the businesses immediately to our west and enter our parking lot. 

If you don't want to travel on the dirt or on Indian School Road follow the directions in the last blog notice. This will take you the back way to 78th street.  From there you can either park on 78th or take the alley to our parking lot.  

If you get completely lost, give us a call and we will be more than happy to direct you.  Our number is 480-941-3898.

In the meantime, Knit - It's Hot!

The City of Scottsdale just informed us that beginning Monday, June 22 traffic will be switched from the south to the north  side of Indian School Road in front of our store.  Access to the store will be maintained. 
At some point the road in front of the store will be ripped up.  At that time it may be necessary for us to close the store for a short time until access can be restored.  We will try our best to keep you informed as far in advance as possible.  Continue to check the blog for updates on this situation. 

To avoid the construction take Osborn to Miller, turn west on E Main, North on E 1st St. and follow around to 78th st.  Park along 78 th street.

Thanks again for your patience.

News Channel 10 Broadcast

Several weeks ago we told you that News Channel 10 was coming out to film us during one of our knit-ins.  It was broadcast on Thursday, June 11 on the 9 p.m. news.  Lots of people have responded to the segment commenting on how wonderful the store looked.  It has also brought in many new people to the store.  For those of you who missed it just go to the News Channel 10 website - look at previous broadcasts and click on Knit Happens.  We want to thank Channel 10 for taking the time to come to our store.  They did a terrific job with the segment. 

Why all the Sales???

We have had several people ask us why we are putting on all of the 50% off sales over the summer.  It's true that sales at some knitting stores is not a common place occurrence.  However, CJ's philosophy with Knit Happens is that she intends on keeping new yarns coming in to the store to offer our customers the best in selection.  She wants to have the latest trends in yarns and patterns and to accomplish this we need to clear out some stock to  make way for new things for the fall season.  As we told you, CJ is at TNNA making purchases for the fall and winter.  We simply need space in the store to add these new yarns and  we want to offer our customers not only the best and freshest selection but great value as well.  So don't worry - we're not going anywhere - we're just continuing to make this the best knitting store in town!
