Wow. I can hardly believe that we are celebrating our Second Anniversary at The Loopy Ewe! Things have changed so much here since we first opened. We started with just a few lines (Regia, Claudia Hand Painted, Lorna’s Laces, Cherry Tree Hill, and Schaefer) and things have grown just a little bit since then! We started in this little side room in our basement (which I thought was a perfect little “sock yarn nook” and would serve us well) and now we’re waiting to expand our space again for the 3rd time. (I hear pounding. I think walls are coming down next door and the space is being made ready, but they haven’t punched through to us here yet, which means they’re not yet ready to make it all one big space.) We started with a few hundred skeins of yarn, built it up to 7977 at this time last year (remember that blog contest?) and …. well, let’s just say that we have thousands more than that now. (ahem. Someone keeps ordering more.) We started with just two customers – my mom, and my good friend Janice, and now we have lots of you and you all have become very dear to us. (You make it possible for there to BE a Loopy Ewe!) Thank you for all of your support and encouragement over these past two years. Y’all are so much fun and we feel lucky to have you. We’re looking forward to many more years with you.
In honor of our Second Anniversary, we put up the Anniversary Sock Kit last night (edited: now sold out…), and we’re having a blog contest today! We have set aside plenty of prizes (including several skeins of Wollmeise that I saved just for this) and we’d love for you to enter. All you have to do is leave a comment on today’s blog and you’ll automatically be entered. (Any comment will do: “Happy Anniversary”, “have a good weekend”, “enter me into the contest”, “I need a latte”, etc. 🙂 ) We’ll leave it up to you. We’ll announce the winners next Friday, so you have a week to read this and leave your comment. We also put up a new Photo Gallery – one called “Loopy Central”. (We started calling it Loopy Central way back when it was still in our house. It just means the heart of all things Loopy – it’s where everything happens!) The gallery contains photos taken around here, to give you a picture of where your orders come from. We will continue to add to this photo gallery as we get the new space set up, and I’ll add photos of all of the Elves, too. We hope that it makes you feel a part of things here at The Loopy Ewe. (And remember, you’re always welcome to come visit in person. We’d love to see you.)
Happy 2nd Anniversary!!! I have really enjoyed reading your blog and of course ordering lots of fantastic yarn in the last couple years. Keep up the great work!
I am impressed with all of the entries……you rock!
Am I too late? Is the party over? Can I still wish you a Happy Anniversary?
Happy Anniversary! Hope you have many more!
Congratulations on the new space
Holy Guacamole…you got a lot of comments on this post!!!! Happy Anniversary, Loopy Ewe.
Not being able to knit at a faster pace really bugs me. I really enjoy the variety of yarns. Happy Anniversary!
Happy Anniversary to you (& your family) Sheri. All of us knitters/spinners are truly blessed to have The Loopy Ewe in our midst. You all ROCK!
Happy! Happy! Anniversary!! And many more to come!
I hope your Anniversary kits will be in stock again soon!!
Happy Anniversary! You have raised the bar on online shopping. I wish you many, many more! (if my bank book can take it! 🙂
Happy Anniversary!! Here’s to many more!!
So honored to be a part of the fiber-y fabulousness that is The Loopy Ewe. Happy Anniversary! Here’s to breaking out *all* the walls!
Congratulations! I love looking at your site and being inspired by all of the beautiful yarn.
Thanks so much for opening up TLE. Firstly, you completely single handedly developed my sock yarn habit and now with the roving you are feeding my spinning habit; so much so that I have just bought a Ladybug! (from someone else, sadly because you cant ship to me here in AK and I cant afford your plane fare and still buy more fiber! ) Though you take more money from me than I would like to admit, I fully admit to throwing it at you and hope to send you more money for years to come.
Thanks again Sheri and all your Loopy Elves too!!
Happy Anniversary to you Loopy Ewe.
You are growing bigger and bigger.
congrats! your store is fabulous and so is your huge selection of yarn. your customer service is top notch and anyone can see that you take pride in this. you are all so lucky to be doing something you seem to really love. all the best on another successful year:o)
These are just happy posts to read:)
Just love your website and your products. Ordered for the first time a couple of weeks ago and was so impressed with products/ service and especially the personal thank you note — that goes such a long way.
Looking forward to my weekend getaway and will be able to share gifts with all. Once these women see your products they will also be ordering. Will share pictures next week…
thanks again and Happy Anniversary !!!!
Here’s to many more years of sheepy goodness!
Happy Birthday, Loopy Ewe! My own birthday is August 16, so we’re both Leos! I look at the website now, and all of the yarns, patterns, accessories, bags, and spinning wheels you have, and I am dumbfounded at how you have grown in such a short time. The selection is absolutely unbelievable, the customer service is outstanding, the website is gorgeous. Well done!
Did I tell anyone I love The Loopy Ewe today??
Hi Sheri! I am so glad that I found your site…lots of socks and shawls have been made from purchases from your store. Happy Anniversary!
I just wanted to say thank you for offering so much wonderful sock yarn, supporting indie dyers, giving us laughs with the blog, having a great online store (I’m sure your physical location is fabulous too), being the only website so far I’ve found where you can sort by COLOR (what a great idea!), etc. etc. Happy 2nd Anniversary and many moooore!
So THAT’S why I can never get any Wollmeise – you save it all back to give as prizes. 🙂
Happy Anniversary! We are so glad that you are around!
I have to clean house, too, and I would MUCH rather be knitting.
Happy Anniversary, and best wishes for a great year to come! Your website is great and your service is fabulous. From all of the responses, you have some enthusiastic support!
Happy Anniversary, Loopy!
I love Loopy Ewe. You make each and every one of us feel special. We aren’t just customers really; rather friends sharing a bond to knitting and you are the catalist that brings us all together. Keep it up. Here’s to many many more good years.
