Victoria here,
We are opening our Shop (Village Yarn and Tea Shop) in October, it will be located on Ballinger Way between I5 and Bothell Way. The actual address is 19500 Ballinger Way, Shoreline, WA.
Yes, yanks are not the best at making tea but we will be learning from those who really know how to brew a proper cup of tea and we know there are those who will be testing us.

This is kind of funny or ironic, I've been daydreaming about opening a knitting cafe for several years now, even before I knew such places actually existed! But I'm a diehard coffee drinker, I only drink tea occasionally. And it is surprising that there's no place in Seattle combining espresso and yarn. Although the staff at Acorn Street used to sell $1 lattes to the people in line when they had their Morning Madness sale (waiting in line at 5:30 am in October you need a good strong latte!).

Jenn - Fly to Seattle and we'll organize a "yarn crawl" !

Victoria - I'm *so* excited for your Village Yarn & Tea Shop - Bravo!!!! I have cousin who lives in Shoreline and she keeps trying to get us to go to Spin A Yarn in downtown Edmonds. Wait until I tell her about your place!

Yes it's true, American's don't know how make a proper cup of tea, HOWEVER I know of 3 decent dedicated tea shops and one café with a distinguished assortment of loose teas that steeps at your table. Now, wouldn't that be considered proper "cuppa" if you're the one deciding when the tea is good enough to sip?

On the first and third Sunday of the month starting at 2:30 in the afternoon … Just don’t try to knit anything too complicated if you are going to drink. LOL!

Now if there were a coffee house somewhere in San Diego that we could meet at instead, I could get that lace shawl going.

Too bad I won't be there the 2nd Sunday, as I definitely need some R&R - attending my cousin's funeral next week BUT... I'm so glad I'm able to take off from work on short notice and grieve with family, chat & connect with old friends and hit the beach!!!!

Isn't Croce's Café Bar & Grill still downtown? They're open til wee hours of the morning too. Might be smokey, can't remember.

Do you have a Starbuck's Café nearby? The kind where there's comfy chair and half's upholstered in velvet and a fireplace?

Hi Victoria, I met you briefly at the knitting meetup at Third Place Books. I am SO excited about your shop!! I even had my sweetie drive me by the location so I could scope it out ;) Can't wait until construction is done and you can move in.

Best of luck!

Hi Victoria

I'm just outside Vancouver BC - I'm thinking in the early fall I'll have to do a leisurely drive south and scope out all these wonderful new yarn stores I'm hearing about.

Best of luck to you!
