... to the Knitter's Review Boutique? I remember it from the older newsletters, but it seemed to just disappear. Or am I incredibly blind and it's right in front of my face? (Happens...)

Indeed! I'm sorry. I came to one of those Important Turning Points several years ago where I realized there wasn't enough room in the garden for everything I'd planted. The boutique went.

I appreciate knowing it is missed, though, I really do.

I came in after the Boutique? What was it and how did it work? I want to mourn its passing, too!

Clara had the most beautiful note cards. Assortments of teacups with balls of yarn, fiber against trees and flowers. Just lovely. I hoarded several boxes and only pull them out for the right person. Oh, and lovely holiday cards.

And I too bought a knitting basket. And there was a nice offering of stitch markers in sterling, I believe.

Just a little of this and that.

Clara, we want you to expand your garden! We'll help weed and water! The Boutique sounds great! Was it a place to trade and swap, or did Clara sell items there? Was it a thread in the forum? Could the Boutique be a feature at the next retreat? Those of us who never experienced it could get a taste? It sounds yummy...

Deborah, it was absolutely yummy!
Clara, any hope of getting the boutique back?

I wouldn't mind having been on time to KR so that I could have hoarded some cool note cards and other treats, but I imagine the boutique was a lot of work, a lot of stock, planning ahead, stuff that wouldn't sell along with the stuff that would, paperwork, trips to the post office, returns, exchanges, book-keeping, all of which must have taken a great deal of time and mean Clara couldn't be spinning or knitting or writing, and I also imagine that perhaps it wasn't particularly remunerative for the time that went into it. How's that for a run-on sentence, Clara?

I think the garden sounds like a much sounder investment!
