Quietly Wild (IL) closing
Did everyone already know this? That Quietly Wild in Woodstock, IL is closing? I was so sorry to see that when I looked at their website just now. I never did buy anything during our get-together there (out of sheer newbie overwhelmedness) but I'm going to try to get up there before the end of the month. It was such a nice little place...

Isn't that sad? Hopefully they'll have some good sales...that is my favorite place to go. They have such a huge selection of Cascade 220 and Lamb's Pride!

That's terrible! I remember the owner mentioning that business hadn't been very good because of all the competition. That makes me so sad - it's such a lovely little shop.

Sheesh ... can't we DO anything?!

OH NO!!! :crying: :crying: :crying:

I like that shop so much better than my LYS.
She had more of what I like. Well worth the hour's drive.

I mentioned this to DH and he asked if I wanted to go buy up their stock. :D

I'm waiting 'til 10:00 to call and to see what she has left of what I "need", before we drive an hour up there.
