Spring is finally at our doorstep, daffodils are blooming, trees are budding, our friends at Good Karma Farm are welcoming new baby lambs and Quince has finally perched itself quietly amongst our shelves.
Friday evening we launched our Q Club Membership with a private trunk show and preview party. Thirty three shelves nested Quince’s Sparrow, Finch, Owl, Lark, Osprey, Puffin, and Chickadee. You fondled, caressed, ohhhed and awed, helped others choose colors, shared project ideas and we think a few of you even coveted thy neighbor’s basket, but each and everyone one of you went home with goodie-filled bags and a spring in your step.
Quince has remained right on target with it’s goal to “create a demand for quality American fiber”, artistic creativity and good ol’ “Yankee ingenuity”. We look forward to growing with them, exploring and reveling in every new pattern, fiber and inspiration. As they grow, so do we as a community, hopefully lessening the decline of our mills, our LYS’s and the diminished interest in our younger generation who have abandoned “our grandmother’s hobbies” for the latest electronics and designer “off the rack” creations.
We just wanted to express our gratitude for your overwhelming support and thank Pam, Jerusha, Hannah, Ryan and the rest of the Quince team for giving us this opportunity.
**For those of you who asked about socks for Quince, they will be releasing four new patterns in May, all knit with Finch, in their first sock book.
