12:28 PM: Thanks to Christina for the tip. If you look closely at the “Coming Soon” signs that have popped up in the corner space of 2701 California SW (next to The Good Society), you’ll see the first “o” is the logo for Seattle Yarn. The store, currently at 5633 California SW (where the space is listed as available for lease), has more than a quarter-century of history; its current owners took over five years ago. Their store is closed Mondays so we couldn’t stop in to inquire about the new plan, but we have sent a message and hope to hear back.
1:58 PM: Just talked by phone with Seattle Yarn co-proprietor Destiny Itano. She says they’re hoping to move into the new space around “end of summer” – no set date yet. They’ve been doing some work inside but she says they’re excited not about the increased visibility of that corner, but also about some things the space will enable them to do – it has some separate rooms, for example, which means they can have dedicated class space instead of “shuffling tables around” to make room on the main shop floor. She says they’re also excited to have Good Society as their new neighbor, as that opens possibilities for synergy with their groups and other activities.
