Last Week of the Anniversary Sale!

History of WEBS

WEBS moved to 109 Main St. in Amherst. The store was in the basement and the entrance was in the back. Our Fleece Market actually started in the parking lot of this location. It was half and half knitting and weaving yarn. Barbara always talks about how this was a small shop and she had to balance purchasing and the money coming in.

The mail order venture started at this time as well. Art would go out and negotiate for mill ends and samples of the yarns would be cut and mailed all over.

Next Week: The History of WEBS continues, Kathy chats with Susan B. Anderson, KAL continues, more yarn picks and more on the May sale.

Stop into the store to get your I-91 Shop Hop Passport and Tote.
