Love this e-mail...you are truely awesome! Have a good
day of sales.
Sweet mission statement. Have a great week!
Hi Lynn,Really like your emails and really like
your values. Thanks for offering us the natural fibres.?I
would like to learn how to "steek" an in the round
sweater. Maybe this could be an optional add on to the completing
the sweater course. I'd be glad to come in and pay for the
class to hold my spot. Until then, have a wonderful summer.
Enjoy your yoga and meditation.
The coolest thing happened! I was in your store today to buy
some malabrigo in glazed carrot to finish my shrug. I brought
it home and checked my stash to make sure I didn't have
another ball tucked away somewhere. I didn't, but I did find
the label for it and checked the lot numbers just for fun...AND
THEY WERE THE SAME! Woo-hoo...I'm a little excited, can you
tell? Thanks again for winding that into a ball for me...now
I can get back at it tonight.
Today was the best day I've had in a good long time. No cat
poop on the floor, great sushi lunch with David I., going
to see Lynn Landry-Rody at Threads in Time with Sonya P. and
getting some gorgeous red Malabrigo laceweight yarn, discovering
Kyuss' newly popped tooth (AHA! THAT's what the screaming
was about!), and then, unexpectedly RUNNING during my walk
tonight! I ran for 2 of my 7 km! Holy crunk! I haven't run
in 2 years! I was slow and probably looked ridiculous, but
I DID it. And it felt AWESOME. GREAT day.
Thank you for sharing your lovely shop with us the other day.
I was one of the ladies that came in on our way to the Amethyst
I had bought your Pattern for a Ondas and a ball of your Katia
Ondas. We have just got back to Kingsville and I am so excited
to find my needles and start this project. I found your shop
amazing and exciting and wished I could stay there for a month
or so and take some of your classes. I was wondering if I
found something on your site if you would be able to ship
it out in the future? Take care and wishing you all the best.
On our way to Red Lake and got a pair of carders they were
perfect.This is my new favorite place and next time my husband
is on he way to Red Lake and has to stop in Thunder Bay there
is a possibility I will have a list for him. lol.
Have a Great Day!!!
Hi Lynn ,
Looks like I am on your list. Good to hear from you as I am
putting the sweater together, trying to make invisible seams.
When I am finished I will send you a picture . The Malabrigo
merino superwash wool has been a dream to knit .

It is with that child-like heart that all great adventures
begin. It's the big "what if's" in life that spark
our curiosity and engage our attention. When we love doing
something, it's not work to us, but play.
Good morning Lynn,
I am enjoying working away at my Einstein coat (although I
wish I could quit my day job so I would have more time for
Thanks for your help and support and I canít thank Susan enough
for coming in that day to help me. I do plan to pop by for
the occasional Tuesday afternoon session, especially when
I need advice. I love the support you offer at your shop.
It is more than a yarn shop Ö sort of like a sisterhood or
Thereís a fellowship Ö you know what I mean.
Talk with you soon,
You are a God-send. I really appreciate all your help.
I'll give it a go and see what happens.
I LOVE coming to the workshops Ė and so enjoy
the drop-inís, which is why Iím going to endeavour to make
it to the Tuesday afternoon ones, if at all possible. You
have the greatest group of ladies attending. Of course, the
shop would not be so welcoming if not for you! I can tell
you, without a doubt, that from the 1st visit, you made me
feel so welcome that you now cannot get rid of me! Poor you!
Just wanted to let you know that I have missed
Threads in Time every single day since I moved! Right now,
I live at least 1-1/2 hours from any yarn stores, and the
Twin Cities is 3 hours away. =(
But there is nowhere like Threads in Time! I especially think
about all of the lovely, lovely Handmaiden and Fleece Artist.
Swoon! Next time Iím up there, Iím stopping inÖÖ.
Over five thousand "participants took part in a world
wide competion recently... with opening and closing ceremonies...
and prizes. And believe it or not ... it's not the olympics..
it's called the Ravelympics...Knitters who belong to world
wide knitting forum called "ravelry" ... joined
in... their goal? to create an entire knitting project during
the Official Olympic games in Beijing. There's a strong Ravellery
group here in Thunder Bay... Lisa Laco got together with four
ATHLETES at their official Village.. Threads in Time.. a Yarn
and weaving store... now, I only knew most of these women
by their Ravellery ID"Saudio_trans.gif ¬Listen
While in Thunder Bay I spotted an organic food store that
offered hot organic coffee and we stopped in for some. There
was a great open sitting area in the back of the store and
I mentioned to the owner that it would be a fabulous place
for a knitting group to meet. She asked if we knew that there
was a yarn store in town that specialized in natural fibers
and that the owner was a weaver? No, we didn't know that.
Well, it turned out to be just around the other corner. And,
as you can guess, we trucked right over there.?I picked up
a couple skeins of Regia silk and a lovely hank of Lucy Neatby
Celestial Merino Dream in the "Sugar Maple" colorway.
And Big Knitter ordered a blanket sized supply of a beautiful
colorway of Fleece Artist worsted weight hand dyed merino.
And I didn't get a picture of it. But the owner will be mailing
it to us when she gets it in. And I might have to claim that
I can't for the life of me remember the name of that wonderful
store, but the owner is a super talented weaver and has some
of her large weavings adorning the walls of the shop. I will
remember the name, I promise, and include a link in my next
Hello! I randomly happened across this in my internet browsings
and the store in Thunder Bay is Threads In Time! (I'm from

Hi Lynn, I love your store and hope to visit again. I was
there in mid-July, visiting from Minneapolis with an elderly
I come into your store just to get inspired!! All the wonderful
colours and feel of the yarns make my mind run wild with ideas.
I'm going to have a hard time leaving my loom for so long
during the summer. I'll have too much time to plan other projects
while I'm away. Then I'll have to work like a mad woman when
I get back. If I get the runner completed before we head out
of town, I'll try to get into the store to show you because
I will be giving it away to my friend down south.
Have a great summer!
Hi Lynn, I just received your letter in the mail. Thank you!
I've been dreaming of all the ways I can spend the gift certificate
(and I've come up with many!). It is really much appreciated.
And thank you for the news paper clippings. When we opened
the envelope Paul said something about how wonderful it is
that we live in such a great community where a little business
like ours can make it into the paper a few times and where
you can become fast friends with the LYS owner who sends the
clippings. One of the best decisions I ever made was to take
the risk and move to Thunder Bay. I'll be seeing you soon!?
