Here are a couple of pix from Amanda's going-away party.
"Amanda first came into the shop with her mother and grandmother in the Fall of 2007. Her grandmother let me know right away that I should hire her granddaughter. (She was right!) Amanda started at Fresh Purls in early January, 2008 and worked for us while she attended RISD.
She has been invaluable to Fresh Purls and big favorite of our customers. Now she is going back to Michigan to work on a book of her own knitting patterns. Once that book comes out, by hook or by crook we'll get Amanda back into the shop for a book signing. Count on it!
I know the whole shop joins me in wishing Amanda the best of luck!"
BTW, if you're looking for an absolutely spectacular cake for a special occasion, you can't beat Confections in Fall River!
