Everyone has dreams, and ideas that they want to make come true. Some people want to travel around the world. Others want to read as many books as they can, or even publish their own.
I want to open a yarn store.
Yes, you heard me correctly. I want to open a real, brick and mortar yarn store. One where people can come to not only buy fantastic yarn, but enjoy each other’s company. Where they can sit and work on a project, or enjoy a class on a new technique, or just get help with a crafting roadblock. I want to have comfy chairs and a place for a nice cuppa. I want to have at least two nights a week where people can come, sit, and knit/crochet/spin.
I’m very luck that I have a dear friend who shares the same vision that I do. Brandon is one of my oldest friends; we’ve known each other for at least twenty years. He and his wife, Tory, want to help me make this vision come to life! The only major roadblock we have is getting the money. We want to get started, but don’t have a lot of funding.
I decided to start a GoFundMe campaign. Now, I sat on this for a few months. I listened to a lot of viewpoints on this subject, some very supportive, while others were skeptical. But Amanda Palmer’s book, ‘The Art Of Asking’, has inspired me to move forward. Brandon and I are looking to raise $600, to cover the cost of starting the LLC and legal fees associated with that process.
If you would like to donate, you can visit the link HERE. If you can’t donate, I ask that you share this post. Tell you friends and family. We are halfway to our goal as of today, and I’m so thankful for the kindness of not just my support system, but of strangers as well.
There is no longer a yarn store in my town, not like I want to see and make happen. If anyone is interested in investing in our business above and beyond the GoFundMe campaign, please contact me. Brandon has done a fantastic job with out business plan, and it is quite detailed.
Have a great weekend!
