The economy strikes close to home


It is with a very heart I publicly announce that my beloved LYS, home away from home, and so much more, will be closing at the end of the month. The economy strikes again, this time on a very personal level. During the four years Bonita Knitting, then more recently Bonita Knit & Sew has been in business, I went from frequent customer to instructor and part time employee. I have spent at least two days a week there, communing with the fibers and making some really good friends. As we improved our knitting and crochet skills, we bonded while our projects emerged, accomplishing more than we ever thought we could. I’m going to miss it terribly and am going to try very hard to maintain those friendships as we scramble to find a convenient place to knit. We are brainstorming possible substitutes, but we all know it could never measure up to ‘the shop.’ I regret good will and camaraderie could not overcome the realities of a harsh ecomony. I loved the place and mourn its passing while remembering the wonderful time it existed as a beacon to my creative soul.

Hi Tania,
I became a customer during Susan's first week in business and remained a frequent presence until my move to Chicago last year (even then, I had orders shipped.)

I knit my first pair of socks at the shop - thanks to you! - and vastly improved my knitting skills which had remained pretty much the same since I learned to knit as a teenager eons ago. I loved taking your classes!!! Along with being organized and clear, you are encouraging and just plain fun.

Here's hoping that you find a place to get together to knit and visit and that I can join you when I am next in San Diego.

My best to you,
Trisha
