It’s Been 10 Years!

The Knitter’s Edge held its Grand Opening on April 18, 2009. For Amanda & me, that day was filled with excitement and fear. Would we make it?
Well, 10 years later, we are going strong! We are so grateful for our wonderful customers and outstanding staff who have made us what we are today.
And we are very thankful for each other.
So to our entire TKE Family, we raise our needles in gratitude for
10 wonderful years. Here’s to all of you!
Here we are April 2010- our first anniversary.
Please come see us on our 10th! (there will be cake!)
You know we will have a HUGE sale- so Save the Date!
