Dear Friends,

I write to you from a place of sadness today to tell you that -
due to personal circumstances - I will no longer be involved with the shop.

It is my understanding that Cindi is going to maintain the shop. Questions about shop hours, products, and events should be directed to her at 937-526-3885.

I've enjoyed every minute of the past several months and hope to be sitting and knitting with you soon only it will be in a different setting!

Peace, Love and Happy Knitting!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Cynthia and I would like to invite you to our…

Grand-Opening Celebration
September 21 to October 3, 2009

At noon, Monday September 21, the Versailles Chamber of Commerce welcomes My Sister’s Whimsy to the Versailles business community with a ribbon cutting.

To celebrate our “official” opening, we will be giving away some great door prizes.

(Check back...more prizes will be added soon.)

To be eligible to win all you need to do is visit the shop between September 21 and October 3 and put your name into the drawing.

One entry per person. You do not have to be present to win.

The drawing for door prizes will be held at 1:30pm Saturday, October 3, 2009.

Why give the door prizes away that day? Because that’s…

Downtown Versailles’ Harvest Day
Saturday October 3 – 8am to Noon

This will be a morning of fun, free, family activities on Fountain Square including a treat walk through the area businesses, the final and largest Farmers Market of the season, along with sidewalk sales and an old favorite pie-baking contest.

This would be a great morning to visit the shop and take part in all the downtown fun!

We hope you’ll come in and celebrate with us.

If you haven’t been to the shop in a while come see what’s new!
Teresa (and Cynthia)

Yes...We Give Lessons!

Meet Natalie, who is learning to knit.

Natalie is 7-years old. She's working on her very first scarf
and doing a GREAT job!

Natalie's mom, Susan,
pictured here with Natalie,
has been bringing her to the shop the past few Monday
evenings where we sit and knit for about an hour.

Natalie is mastering the knit stitch and
also throwing in a row of purl stitch here and there.

She says she likes doing the knit stitch best...
...I can relate to that, can't you?

The shop will be closed Monday, August 24th through regular hours Saturday, August 29th - fair week.

We hope you'll join us for another
Sit and Knit - Saturday, August 29th from 2 to 4pm.

That same afternoon
1st Annual New Generation Wine, Beer and Food Festival
Versailles Fountain Square
Entertainment provided by Higgins-Madewell

Tickets are available at the Inn
$35 presale / $40 at the door

Tickets will allow you to eat and drink while at the same time being free to enjoy
Higgins and Madewell at Fountain Square and check out any shops that are open...
...including ours!

Cindi has heard Higgins and Madewell before and really loves their music.

We'll also have refreshments so if you just want to come sit and knit that would be great too!

After a week of walking the fair-grounds, you deserve to sit and knit a while!

Friday's Sit 'n Knit

...was a success!
Lot's of knitting, talking and laughing.

(Click on each pic to make them bigger.)

I didn't take these pics until after two knitters left, and I didn't catch Kristi who was sitting by the front door. As you can see, if was a full house. (Of course - the size of the shop makes that easier to achieve.)

We'll definitely going to do this again and soon!

Friday, July 3, 2009

We're closing the shop Saturday July 4th and Monday July 6th for the holiday weekend.

Here's hoping your weekend is everything you need it to be!

New Stuff!

Last Monday, the very sweet and talented Kat, of Paper and Yarn, came to the shop toting her wares. I had connected with her through Ravelry and it was a treat to get to meet her in person.

She left some really fun stuff for the shop...
  • one of a kind skeins of hand-spun and hand-dyed yarn (including sock yarn!) 
  • one of a kind stitch markers
  • hand-sewn mini notebooks-great for keeping in your knitting bag 
  • mini gift tags
Here's visual proof, but of course, you really need to come in and see Kat's things for yourself!
