Grey Heron Natural Designs Gets Out of Hot Water
Karen Farmilo had a nasty surprise when she unlocked her yarn shop, Grey Heron at 66 Pine St. in Collingwood, on Wednesday, June 26th.
Her stock of yarns - basics to hand dyed luxury was a sodden mess due to a leaky water tank in a rental apartment above her store.The mushy ceiling tiles, soggy carpeting, warped furniture and ruined yarn have all been removed and space is now in rebuild mode.
Farmilo is busy calling suppliers so that she can restock the Grey Heron new shelves without too much delay.
There is still a lot of paperwork and re-organizing left to do but Farmilo is confident that she can have her store open again before the August long weekend - at her newly renovated space in the "Market" building @ 65 Simcoe Street Collingwood.

You can enter through the front double doors and find Grey Heron located at the first door on the left. You may also enter Grey Heron from their St. Marie St patio, to the left of the double door front entrance.
Her new space is perfect for a yarn shop - bright, cheerful, lots of windows and a BIG table for our classes, workshops and Thursday drop in group.
More details will emerge over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned...
In the mean time, our Thursday drop will be held at Heavenly Sweets Cafe 48 Pine St, the usual time 1 - 4
