       Farewell to "Aylin's Woolgatherer"

If there are some in the area who have not yet heard, "Aylin's Woolgatherer,"

the fantastic northern Virginia yarn shop that became a Washington-area institution

known for its wide selection of yarns and friendly service to all fiber artists,

closed its doors yesterday, May 31, after 41+ years in business.

Coincidentally, the store opened the very same month I got married! 

 

Aylin's became like a second home to me, as the venue for my local classes over the past 17 years. 

More than that though, over those years I was fortunate to get to know owner Aylin Bener and we formed a warm friendship. 

The good news is, that part won't change.

Classes Continue - New Location

As a practical consequence, we have lost our classroom, so there is some adjustment to be made, 

but both Aylin and I will continue to teach knitting and crochet,

and we DO have a new location for our Washington-area classes!

See "Classes" Tab for Details

I look forward to seeing you.

 

 

It was great fun teaching two classes in the Big Apple for a wonderful group of crocheters

of the Crochet Guild of New York City on March 5.
