About this project

We're opening a knitting, crochet, and spinning store in Orange, California in June of 2015.

We plan on stocking a wide selection of yarns, tools, notions, spinning wheels, fiber, books and so much more.  We welcome everyone to come hang out in the store-working on whatever projects you've got on the needles or hooks.  We'll be available to offer assistance when needed and company at all times.

We're on kickstarter to help raise the remainder of the funds we need to get the amount of inventory we'd like to offer.  We've created some fun and funny T-shirts, stickers, notecards, tote bags and other rewards that we hope you'll love and want more of. The designs we have for you to choose from are:

Sheep+Spin=Knit

We Love Yarn and all fiber related things and want to bring our love to the world.  Please help us make our dreams a reality so we can help others make their fiber related dreams a reality.

Risks and challenges

We think any risks associated with fulfillment of our rewards is minimal. We are lucky enough to live in Southern California where there are a large variety of companies available to assist us in fulfillment. We've already checked out the company we plan to use and have 2 backup companies who've promised that they have the ability to pull off fulfillment in a timely manner.

We expect our biggest challenge will be getting everyone's shirt sizes and colors organized and in envelopes to be shipped. We've got a large group of family and friends who've agreed to assist us in getting our rewards shipped out in a timely manner.

As for risks and challenges in opening a new store; there are many. Everything from getting initial orders in on time, labeled and inventoried in time to open to getting the word out about our store. We're working every moment we have to get things in order. We've already begun meeting with representatives from various companies to plan our first inventory orders and have lists longer than you would ever think possible.

We're lucky in having both legal and accounting backgrounds which will get us past a lot of obstacles (or at least have a better understanding of how to get around certain obstacles). We've also both worked retail jobs in the past. Work won't be work because we'll be surrounded with what we love the most, yarn, (if you didn't guess). That will give us the motivation and energy to overcome any challenge.
