I have added a new page called in hopes to get back into the ecommerce world. If our small little yarn shop is to survive I must be able to provide more options to our customers. This will be a learning process for me so please be patient and as I grow so will you. Thanks

and hope these photos of our Christmas Dinner (sprinkled with images of our favorite subject) will give you a chuckle and put you in the HO HO HO spirit!

The fun starts here..with Colleen and Gary. As you can see, Colleen is FULL of the devil and this time of year loves to suprise us with her gestures of love, her playful spirit and her endless generosity. She took the whole crew out to dinner at the Lost Roo Restaurant in Long Beach, WA.

After ordering our dinners we began opening our gifts. Each of us had a Secret Santa which is always a recipe for laughter! Here we are for your amusement: 

Knit Happens! October 2, 2010 Knit In


Knit Happens

Join the Cordelia Knitters and Tapestry Rose Yarn Shop Annex

for the

1st Annual

Fall Knit~in

Second Street Public Market

2003 Second Street ~ Tillamook, OR

Saturday, October 2nd

10am to 7pm

The purpose of this event is to bring knitters together for an enjoyable day of knitting and conversation in the beautiful new Second Street Public Market. Where? You guessed it…the public space in front of the stage!

If you are an experienced knitter, share your knowledge. If you have never knit, we will show you how!

Come knit for a few minutes, a few hours or all day. Our goal is to bring at least 100 knitters together to share their love of knitting, wool, and all things fiber!

We will be collecting knitted or crochet hats for Blanket Coverage ~ a ministry that provides hats and blankets for the homeless in the Portland area.

If you have a knitting show & tell, bring it … if you don’t, come anyway! I have goosebumps just imagining all those needles going at once all in the same place! DON’T MISS IT.

Art In The Park…in review.

Art in the Park 2010 was a rather “coasty” day as a fine mist mingled with the artists, their wares and the curious public assembled at Sheldon Park this past July 4th.

She sells sea shells down by the seashore.Variety was the theme. Mediums such as seashells, cranberry vines, oyster shells, textiles and threads, homespun, glass, mixed media and paints and more were exhibited in creative and practical ways.Sparkling glass and mixed media catches attention. Beautiful handmade pottery.The pottery booth was absolutely full of the most beautiful handmade pieces. Very impressive. While the spinning and weaving booth was a buz of activity with women spinning wool right before my eyes and creating intricate woven fabric on a portable loom. I always want to dive right in and join these ladies whenever I see them at work!Rita is weaving yet another one of a kind piece of fabric.

And of course, us knitters and crocheters were there in full force. By nature we always seem to have plenty to do and even more to say, to each other and anyone else who will listen. We even got the crowd involved, teaching kids and adults to finger knit.

All in all, Art In The Park 2010 turned out to be a well attended, interesting and enjoyable time for everyone.

 Too many items to list them all but each and everyone of our artists are extremely gifted and offer something to enrich the lives and homes of each of us.

Thank-you to all of the artists who attended. You are AWESOME!

Zebras! Well, they weren’t actually alive…

See you next year for Art In The Park 2011!

Summer has struck!

One minute I was curled up in my warm cozy bed, wearing my warm cozy coat, cuddling my cat, Lucky, and the next minute  –  POW!!!!  –  Summer stikes! People here and there and everywhere, coming and going so fast I can’t keep track. Maria took off for a whole month and left me here, speechless, Mom is cooking up a storm and Dad wants nothing to do with this here computer. So if you have missed me half as much as I have missed you, relax and know that I AM BACK!

Art in the Park was a smashing success! Lots of people came to check out the handy work of our local artists. We will post pictures soon. I expect next year to be even bigger and better. With any luck the sun will shine for us in 2011  😎

The Tapestry Rose Annex in Tillamook is an instant hit with the Oregon Coast community. Candy and Teresa have fixed the place up so darn nice. If you haven’t been down there to see it, you really must go! They have even started their own knitting group….the Rosetta’s Too (2, two, II). Busy, busy, busy.

Here at the mother shop, we’ve just gotten in a fresh assortment of Fame Trends. I’m tellin ya, this is some fiercely beautiful sock yarn.

Here are a couple of ideas/projects made from Fame Trends.

You will have to contact Swedish Yarns about the patterns.

There is so much more to sock yarn than socks!

  I’m headed out the door now. I’ve got deer to chase, flowers to roll in and sun to soak up. Talk to you again soon.

Licks of love,



Mice and Men…

We all know the old saying….Best layed (or is it laid?) plans of mice and men.

Yes well, along those lines I regret to announce the opening of Tapestry Rose Yarn Annex in Tillamook will be post-poned until sometime in June. The 2nd Street Public Market, where we will be located, has not quite finished some critical projects in order to open the doors this week-end. I suggest you stay on the peninsula for now and come see us on the beach in Ocean Park! I’ll let you know when we are opening down south!

Mother’s Day Menu!

Be sure and join us on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 9th for a special meal with your favorite mom.

Colleen will be preparing Lox of Love for breakfast and her traditional Broccoli Salad for lunch!

Easter Sunday brought us a Bride & Groom in the form of

Daniel & Magee

of Seattle, Washington

After indulging in a healthy & scrumptious breakfast, they proceeded to exchange vows with the help of their Rev. friends Dustin & April Brown. (Duly witnessed by Colleen herself)


Magee throws her “bouquet”…

Guess who caught the flowers ~ oh my!


Mr. and Mrs. Daniel & Magee Patzer!


Our very best wishes to both of you!


Thank you Dave & Sharon!

Some people can always be counted on to put others first, to remember those easily forgotten, and to reach out with a kind gesture or word. Dave and Sharon are just such people. And sure enough, true to form, these two played “Easter Bunny” bringing each of us an Easter Bag full of goodies! So we want to say to Dave and Sharon…
