Then and Now: A Look Back Over 10 Years

Ten years!  We thought it would be fun to look back at Monarch Knitting through the years.  

The 'new' Monarch opened on April 20th, 2013, after a remodel to the original shop on Central Avenue. Oh, my goodness, the shelves were so empty!

We were not in that location for very long as we were asked to relocate across the hall in late October of that same year.  We have a bit more yarn on the shelves!

We also attended 4 Stitches West in Santa Clara.  It was a ton of work but an absolute blast once the show started.

Then we made the big move last March. After a fire in our old building on Central Avenue that luckily did not damage my shop but rendered the building useless, I looked in earnest for the perfect spot.  I wanted high ceilings and lots of light...good luck, right? We found it, and after a few months of planning, we moved into our current location at 490 Lighthouse. I love the space and feel at home here, and I hope you do too.

    I found Monarch in Oct. 2022 while on sabbatical. Katie helped me get a Morning Walk Hat kit to knit on my plane ride back to the East Coast. Since being home in MA I have enjoyed the blogs, patterns, projects, prompt and friendly service always, and wonderful sense of love and community you share from Monarch! Can’t wait to get back to PG in Jan. 2024 and to visit again in person. Thank you Ann and the team. Your love shines even as far away as Concord MA!!
