BIZNOTE: Why Seattle Yarn is for sale

Thanks to the readers who tipped us to a sign up at Seattle Yarn (5633 California SW), saying the shop’s in search of a new owner. We stopped by today to find out more, and talked with proprietor Ruth Bowen:

Ruth took over Seattle Yarn a few years back from mom Virginia Bowen; it’s been in the family for 20 years. Ruth says she simply realized that she wants to do something else with her life, so she is hoping to find someone to take over the store. She’s keeping it open for now while seeking a buyer but, she told us, she plans to close in August if someone isn’t found by then. Interested? E-mail seattleyarn@gmail.com. (In the meantime, if you haven’t heard, the shop’s added another alter-ego as an event venue – here’s what’s ahead.)

    Shoot! I love this store. It would have to be a labor of love for whomever takes it on, as it was for Virginia. 

    I wish I were a better knitter with more money. I’d buy it in a heartbeat!

    Good for you. To pursue our dreams takes courage even when we don’t don’t know what they are yet. Make it happen for yourself. You’ll get there. Don’t let anything hold you back. We’ll get over it. All the best!!!
