Take a moment to write down stories of how Village Wools made a difference for you.
You can post these stories on the Facebook events page now created for this gathering. The link is: https://www.facebook.com/events/1464429760547002/

LETTER TO VW CUSTOMERS- STORE CLOSING 8/28/2015
For 44 years Village Wools has been pleased to serve the fiber needs of the New Mexico and Albuquerque community. It has been a pleasure and a joy and we have become very good friends with many talented knitters, weavers, spinners, dyers, crocheters, silk painters, and felters and many others who have used fiber as their medium of creativity. The time has come to say goodbye. For reasons many and various, it has become fiscally impossible to remain open. We will be closing our does on August 28, 2015. It was a hard but ultimately obvious decision - purely a business one. We will miss being able to serve you; answering your questions, teaching, providing space for meet ins and the Guild Library, helping you choose the materials you wanted and needed for you lovely creations, bailing you out of those trick stuck places and hopefully encouraging you at every turn.
We will see you around town and at fiber groups, meetings, and events, so stay in touch. Who knows how the future will play out, but we know that your creativity will not diminish! Fiber On!
Our summer classes through August will continue as scheduled. Please try to use your Gift Certificates and store credits before we close.
Continue to watch FACEBOOK, this website and our emails for announcements of sales on fixtures, equipments, and yes, even the sheep!
Thank you all for many wonderful years!
Meg, Franzi, Linda and Cathlena
