So long, Windsor Button
I received the saddest news today: Windsor Button is closing its doors. This store is very near and dear to my heart, and I instantly wrote Susan, the owner, an e-mail:
I just received your newsletter that Windsor Button will be closing. I cannot believe it. It was, by far, my most favorite yarn & sewing shop in the Boston area, and the one most convenient for me. Your yarn and notion selection was always spot on, and I loved that you were able to maintain such a large inventory - even a bag of yarn was not typically a problem. The staff was always very helpful (and left me alone when I knew what I wanted or was just browsing). I have such fond memories of the items I've knit using yarns purchased in your shop - countless potholders using Cotton Classic, a hat for my son using Berroco Comfort and a sweater using Berroco Vintage. I also loved that you carried Sublime yarns and pattern books - soft and adorable. Your button selection has rescued me so many times - you always had just the perfect ones.
I am just so heartbroken that Windsor Button is no more. You will be missed.

Windsor Button is holding a clearance sale beginning Monday, February 11th at 10:00 a.m. I might stop by: one last opportunity to tell the employees how much the shop will be missed.
I'm so very sad :(. Windsor Button has seen me through so many projects. Here are a few, a trip down memory lane for sure.
