St. Louis Elves

** Beep, Beep, Beep . . .

This Blog post has been interrupted for a message from the St. Louis Loopy Ewe Elves as The Loopy Ewe moves cross-country to Colorado this week …***

Dear Loopy Customers,

The St. Louis Elves want to say THANK YOU and Goodbye to all of our great customers!!

We’ve had such great fun packing your orders!  We’ve enjoyed helping with your yarn choices and then seeing your finished projects.

We’ve imagined far away places where the yarn finds a new home.  Knitters hunkered down in the snow in Alaska or on the beach in Hawaii.

We’re curious about your cities, towns and countries.  How fun would it be to live in Surprise, Arizona??  Do they ever play marbles in Marble Hill, Missouri?

We’ve had so much fun meeting our customers when they stop by Loopy Central.  We get to put a face with a name and we love it when you bring your projects to show us.

You’ve inspired our own knitting adventures.

We would also like to THANK Sheri for making Loopy such a great place to work!! We will miss you!

The St. Louis Elves wish the new Colorado Elves all the best!

As a final note we’d like to end with the following quote:
“You’re off to Great Places, Today is your Day, Your Mountain is waiting so get on your Way”  – Dr. Suess

Goodbye and Good Luck to everyone. Maybe we’ll see you on Ravelry!

  1. Dear St. Louis Team: thank you for all your excellent service and work. Love the picture on my last order — it’s a keeper. Kind Regards, Mel, in Addy.

  2. Dear Loopy Elves

    Thank you for taking care of my orders over the years. I so appreciate the care with which you packed everything and the bonus of discovering a smiley face on my invoice from time to time. I’ll miss you guys!


  3. Dear St. Louis Elves: Thank you for such a great job over the years! I will really miss the little notes on my order receipts, and the perfectly wrapped skeins of yarn happiness that came my way! You’re all treasures, and I wish you all the best. I miss you already!! Best always, Jody, in southeastern Michigan.

  4. Thank you for your patience the times I have phoned asking about colour choices. You have all been wonderful! All the best as you start on your new adventures, post Loopy Ewe.

  5. OK now I’m crying.. Thank you for always being on the other end of the phone or email to help with orders. I appreciated all your help and friendliness over the years. Good luck to you all as you discover your next adventure.

  6. I’m tearing up. You have all been such a great crew, taking care of us and all of our crazy demands. You will be missed.

    Thank you.

  7. Thanks to each and every one of you for all you have done to allow me to enhance my stash enough to become a lifetime member of SABLE. Even my mail carrier loves you. She says that she loves to read the labels on my packages. They come from the cutest places. I agree with the good Dr. Enjoy the next great adventure. Merry Christmas and a wonder filled New Year.

  8. Thank you for your kindness every time my daughter and I visited the store. We will miss you and your patience as I looked at EVERYTHING! I am very saddened that your work is gone, and hoping that you each have something great to do next. Best wishes!

  9. Thank you!! Thank you!, St. Louis Elves. Your excellence makes all the difference in the world. You truly make the Loopy Ewe a wonderful place to shop. Good Luck to you.

  10. Thankyou all. I am so sad you have lost jobs and I hope you can find new jobs soon. Just think of all the references you can get from all of us.

  11. St.Louis Loopy Elves you girls are the greatest. No where else did I get the customer service that you girls provided. Loved getting my purchases within 3 days. I am so going to miss you all! Happy Knitting and Happy Holidays! I am sure the Colorado Elves will be just as customer orientated! Love you all!

  12. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! The St. Louis Loopy Elves proved that excellent customer service is not a thing of the past. Even though I live on the East Coast I consider The Loopy Ewe my number one LYS and it’s not only because of the great selections of yarn and other things, but it’s because of the excellent and caring service you have provided. Good luck to all of you in all your future endeavors. One good thing about the move to Colorado for me is that as I have family in Denver and am an avid skier who visits regularly I can now go to the “actual” store once in a while! Hooray!!

  13. I’ll miss you too, Elves! It’s been so much fun sending you all notes and comments while placing orders, and receiving notes and comments in my package when the order arrives. You are fantastic! Thank you for all your loving care, wishing you all the best—

  14. Thank you St. Louis Elves for all that you did to make TLE run smoothly and make sure that for those of us that stalk our mailboxes for our shipments, we didn’t have to wait long. You are amazing!

  15. Thank you for all your help with my orders. I was so excited when I became I Loopy Groupie. I wish you luck in your future endeavors. I hope you can find a yarny adventure elsewhere in the St. Louis area. Hopefully, you won’t have too much trouble getting a new job.

    My last order, you sent your elf picture. Thank you very much.

  16. Thank you so much for all your help and answering all my goofy questions. The Colorado elves will have huge shoes to fill. All the best to all of you.

  17. We will miss you in MO!!! But, since I did most of my shopping online anyway…well, I’ll just pretend you are still here! Thanks!

  18. You will all be so missed! Everytime I got my order from TLE it was “happiness in a box” 🙂 Thank you so much for putting smiles on the faces of knitters all over the world.

  19. Thanks, Elves! Quick service, and easily personalized with a phone call! You guys are great, glad I got to meet some of you at Fling this year.

  20. What a lovely post. Thank you all so much. I’m not sure what Sheri would have done without you all. Wishing you nothing but good things in the coming years. (Anyone moving to Colorado?)

  21. Just got my latest order, and I guess it is my last order from the StLouis Elves. Thanks guys (I’m from Illinois originally and guys is gender neutral) for all the prompt and accurate mailings. I did all my business with you on line so you really were like the unseen elves in the back room that made everything happen overnight when no one was looking. Thanks.

  22. Those Colorado Elves have some big shoes to fill!! You have been absolutely wonderful and I wish you all a wonderful holiday season!!!!

  23. I’m going to miss you all! With every one of Sheri’s blog posts, all my orders and 2 Spring Flings, I feel I’ve made friends with each of you. You will have to occasionally hi-jack Sheri’s Blog and update us on what you are doing. Hopefully, we will get to see you at future Loopy Ewe Flings! Best of Everything to each of you!

  24. Thank you Elves!!!!! i recently got my last pk from the St. Louis store. and the Lovely pic of the elves under the arch and note!!!!

  25. My heart is breaking a bit. I never met you, but your signatures on my packing slips have always brightened my day, giving joy to an already joyful delivery. Thank you for all the time we’ve had.

  26. Hi St. Louis Elves.

    It’s been a great run.
    We’ll miss you a ton.
    Good luck wherever life takes you next!
