Life & Shop Updates!

Hello dear friends!

It feels like forever since I wrote a blog post for the website, and it is longgggg overdue. So much in life and business has evolved over the past few months and I'm excited to share it with you.

The biggest update: I'm getting married!

Fun fact: I had my first date with my fiance Travis right after a Sip Stitch Knit meetup! It has been such a pleasure to share life with such wonderful knitting friends. They gave me plenty of advice for the date and watched our relationship develop over time. It didn't take long for us to realize we both wanted marriage, and that we wanted it together. 
On a Thursday afternoon in June, he surprised me with a stroll in the park. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him in front of the park pond while two of my best friends stalked us and took photos! We celebrated our engagement with a long weekend getaway and began wedding planning, as we are planning an small, intimate wedding with our immediate families and close friends in October.

Sip Stitch Knit

Having been busy with summer and planning a wedding in ~90 days, I have decided to pause the monthly in-person SSK meetups. Getting to know fellow knitters and crocheters through the monthly Saturday meetups and Wednesday night meetups in Grand Rapids has been such an enjoyable way to connect with our crafts. 

I'm planning fall and winter meetups, but they may look different in the future. After the wedding, I will be moving to Holland, which means changes in location and times! There will still be GR meetups, but we'll also do more west of the city towards the lakeshore.

Monthly Club

The monthly club has been a highlight of my year shop-wise. It has been so much fun to challenge myself to create new bundles and themes monthly, and so far they have been received so well!

Halloween Advent Calendar

The super popular 13 Days of Halloween Advent Calendar is making a come back! Last year was the first round of advents and they were super well received. If you are looking for a fun way to get back into fall knitting and are as big of a fan of spooky season as I am, you need this calendar!

New Website Design

The shop's website has been redesigned. Hop onto your nearest browser to check it out! I've updated sections, cleaned up listings, and am delighted with how it turned out.

Shop Vacation

After the Halloween advents ship, I will be taking some time off in October to move, get married, and settle in to life with my husband. I plan to be back in time for an epic Black Friday sale!
