Loops gets even bigger, better and loopier!

 

Well, hello there.  Welcome to Loops.

The one-and-only, new, consolidated, bigger, even better, even loopier Loops at 61st & Yale in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

This store has been nearly 10 years in the making.  We invent, we grow, we learn, we reinvent.

We add more spinning, more play, more fun.

All of this came together in less than 2 weeks – and mostly in the last 48 hours.  Here is what it looked like 2 days before we opened.  I love this shot because it seems the guys are all doing yoga or worshiping some sort of spacecraft.

And in point of fact, none of this would have been possible without LOTS of prayers and LOTS of people!  Especially Randy, the Wizard of Saws:

Sherri, who headed up the “Chain Gang” that created our window display out of Bravo Big yarn from My Mountain:

And of course, all of the amazing Loops Troops (some of whom are pictured here, and others who were too tired to stand up for the photo):

To paraphrase my shirt, WE CAN AND WE DID!

If you live near Tulsa, we hope you will come hang out, shop and stitch with us soon and often.  If you live elsewhere, we hope you will plan a visit!  The DoubleTree Warren Place is right across the street, and there are lots of great places to eat, shop and visit in KingsPointe Village and nearby.  We are even putting together a Loops travel guide – keep an eye on our Facebook page for details!  Because as Evi commented, yarn goddesses love to hunt down great LYS’s!

Looking so forward to our next decade of fiber, fashion and fun!
