I wanted to post our Memorial Day hours to the site and I started thinking about this holiday. It's a somber day. It honors the women and men who gave their lives for this country. It also marks the beginning of summer, so perhaps we overlook its meaning: instead, we think about barbeques, parties, sales and a long weekend. Originally the holiday was called Decoration Day and there is some evidence that it was women who started the tradition of decorating soldiers' graves. Now that women will officially be integrated into combat roles I was curious about the history of women in the military and I came across this great article about the history of women in combat.
We will be open Saturday 12 - 5, Sunday 12 - 4 and closed on Monday.
Please come see us, our summer yarn and our current summery projects.
