nancy O – a DOZEN years – and COUNTING!
In March, we celebrated our 12th Anniversary!
Over the years, we’ve grown and made a lot of changes. We moved to accommodate our growing business. We adjusted our offerings and added new lines based on our customers’ needs. We added gifts for babies, for men, and even more clothing selections. Our yarn collection and class sessions have expanded. But, through it all, we’ve always found a way to remain true to our core mission – to be a gathering place where people can find a connection! Many of the connections have come through our knitting community – groups, classes, and gatherings. Many have come through our devoted staff – our sales associates and instructors. All have a common bond – our wonderful customers.
As we continue in our 13th year, watch for some changes. It turns out our initial gut feeling – that people want to connect – is what will sustain us in the world of on-line shopping and e-communication. As the face of small retail changes, the need for experiential connectivity grows!
In the weeks ahead, look for news on our remodeling – and reconnection – to the roots that are upholding our business!

YARN BOMBING 2013
Our team had great fun on Friday evening, as we assembled WIP’s, custom pieces, and lots of fun adornments to create a fabulous cover for the tree outside nancy O. Chris Zwang, who has agreed to take the lead on this, came to the table with a gorgeous basket filled with flowers, butterflies and squares. Everyone enjoyed working side-by-side to sew pieces together, then applied to the tree! We’ll all gather next Friday to decorate a tree at the Aldrich and at Town Hall in advance of the Memorial Day Parade to make sure everyone get’s a peak at what’s coming for Ridgefield!
