TICONDEROGA - The Ticonderoga-based seasonal yarn shop Crafty Ewe will keep its doors open this fall on Wednesday evenings to host the new Ticonderoga spinner's guild.
Sue Granger of Putnam will be facilitating the guild meetings as well as opening the shop to the public 6-10 p.m. on Wednesdays beginning Sept. 8.
Crafty Ewe, which is run by seasonal resident Regina Hebert, normally concludes its full time schedule the weekend before Labor Day so Hebert can return to teaching art and computer classes in Philadelphia. This year, after Labor Day, the guild meetings will begin and the shop will be open to spinners, knitters, crocheters and crafters alike at least one evening per week.
"I think its wonderful that the shop will be able to remain open once a week all the time now, plus on the weekends I am able to make it back up here during the school year," said Hebert. "Sue is doing a wonderful thing for the community by offering her time to start up a local guild."
For more information on joining this spinner's guild call Granger at 547-8457 or stop by the shop and pick up a free fall calendar. Crafty Ewe is located at 174 Lake George Avenue in-between the Corner Caf and the Sunshine Laundromat.
The last full time day the shop will be open this summer is Saturday, Aug. 28, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
