Welcome to Our Relaunched Website!
Posted on May 01 2017
In the beginning, our website was just for our brick-and-mortar customers, to let them know what was going on at the shop.
Then we decided to start selling our looms, spinning wheels and spindles online. We added some basic shopping functionality to our website, and lo, we spread the joy of spinning and weaving throughout the land. And we sold some cool t-shirts (seriously, check out the Cast Off Inequality t-shirts).
Then the knitters and crocheters said, "Hey, what about us? We like your store and want to shop online, too!" And we said, "Soon!" And then a couple of months passed, and we said, "No, really. Soon!"
So what have we been doing for the past couple months? Navigating the ins and outs of getting our new website up and going! After taking a look at how our website was organized, we realized quickly that adding yarn for all our knitting and crocheting buddies meant that our website pretty much had to be completely redesigned so we could offer better menu navigation and product filters. Ever optimistic, we thought for sure it would only take only a few weeks to get a new website up and running (yes, yes -- we can hear you website developing people laughing from over here). Silly us.
But, it's finally here! And we have yarn! We're starting off with just a fraction of what is available at our brick-and-mortar store, but we'll be working over the course of the year to get pretty much all of our yarn stock online. To start with, we have 24 yarns in a wide range of weights and fibers from Manos del Uruguay, Cascade Yarns, Huckleberry Knits, Reywa Fibers, and Rorschach Fibers. Make sure to check back frequently to see what else we have added to our online yarn collection.
And never fear, all our spinning and weaving friends! We still have all the great equipment we had before, just better organized! We also have plans to add additional equipment and fiber over the next several months. We hope you are as excited as we are!
So, see that menu link at the top that that says Shop? Well, shop away, fiber arts friends, and enjoy the new website!
