As you know, our first baby is due at the beginning of October, and so there are going to be various short-term changes at Oxford Kitchen Yarns while that happens.
Firstly I’m going to put the custom orders on hold from the end of this week (Friday 5th September). I’ll take (and sort out) enquiries about custom orders until friday evening, and try to honour as many as I can.
I have a load of sock yarn back in stock, and hope to get alot of dyeing done in the next couple of weeks or so, to re-stock the shop. (And yes, there will be a load more Marmalade sock yarn. 🙂
The shop itself will probably close towards the end of the month for four or five weeks, while we get our head around being parents, but I’m planning to open it back up again as soon as I can, and i’ll try to keep blogging and not totally fall off the radar while the shop is shut.
Once the shop is open again, I’ll return to selling the existing stock, and start getting together a new dyeing routine.
It’s also worth pointing out that I’m committed to maintaining my high level of customer care, and quick delivery of orders, and W is willing and able to help me achieve that, even with a small baby in the house. If for some reason there is going to be a slight delay, I’ll always keep you – the customer – informed.
I want to stress how important Oxford Kitchen Yarns is to me. It will still exist, and I’m looking forward to dyeing more yarn later this year, and in greater volume next year.
In fact this seems like a good time to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has supported Oxford Kitchen Yarns in it’s first year. I’ve had a great time so far, and I’m very excited about dyeing and selling more yarn in the future.
