She's Back!!!

Hey there everyone...
It's been quite some time since I've sat down and wrote to all of you!
Lot's of new things have been happening at Belladonna's.
There has been some physical changes at the shop .
About a month ago I moved the big oak table in the front window so people passing by could see what's going on here and possible be enticed to come into the shop.
It's also very good for lighting and seeing what you are doing in natural light.
Spring has FINALLY come to the east coast and seems like it might stay awhile.
We are getting ready for the NJ WOOL WALK in about a week and lots of new and pretty yarns have arrived at Belladonna's.
Plenty of summery cotton tape yarns are here from companies such as Lang, Bergere de France, Katia, and Berroco.
A new line to the shop is Feza Yarn. This is a yarn company that does several textures in one skein to give you lots of interest in garment making and sure to be a show stopper with whatever you do with it!
In addition to all the new summer yarns Belladonna's is excited to start carrying Sweet Romance jewelry. This jewelry line is vintage inspired and made in America. The pieces are gorgeous and beautifully crafted with crystals and charms.
I revised the class schedule again since the beginning of the year didn't start out very well with a snowstorm every fourth day.
I added a lot of what I think are interesting garment making classes and a knitting with wire class along with the beginner classes.
I will get it on the blog hopefully tomorrow.
I deleted the calendar on the blog since it is confusing to read and lots of you couldn't access it.
I hope this is a better solution.


Hoping all of you have been well and continuing in your yarn adventures.
I promise to write more frequently and keep you updated on the all the news at the shop.
See you at Belladonna's.........................
