What's On Tap for 2012....

Welcome to 2012

We are hopeful that 2012 will be a year of positives. 
Our key focuses this year will be:
: Keeping alive and growing the yarn arts.  In support of this we already have Gwen Bortner, Cat Bordhi and Jane Patrick scheduled to visit TYF.  We plan on continuing our focus on teaching new knitters, spinners and weavers, plus we'll be looking for ways to expand our crochet efforts.  We'll also be offering the Olds College Master Spinners Level 2 program in the fall.       

Giving Back to the Community: We believe that part of having a business in a community is to be part of the whole community by giving back.  Our first focus in 2012 will be to continue the knitted knocker program in support of the Chandler Regional Hospital Cancer Center.  Plans are to also do another Shawl to benefit MS.  As the year develops we'll look for other opportunities, as they always have a way of presenting themselves.  
Continuing to Grow Our Local Suppliers: Over the years we've asked you to Shop Local by supporting small businesses like Tempe Yarn.  We intend to continue to do the same by growing our local supplier base.     

Just for Fun: Having fun is essential to having a healthy life.  We will be doing our 6th Annual Choose Your Own Adventure Retreat in July.  There are several new knitalongs planned and Terry's head is filled with new patterns.  Plus, with the arrival of Liam (see below), we'll have a new little person in the shop that will be sure to bring a smile to your face.   
Business: For us to be here when you need us, we'll focus on keeping our business strong and healthy.  You can help by shopping at Tempe Yarn and by spreading the word that we are here.   

So let's all toast to 2012, may it be better than 2011 and lay the foundation for a great 2013.
