We’ve spent the entire weekend moving all the Great British Yarns stock into the new studio. This involved a total of twelve trips in our Renault Scenic (with the back seats removed) moving 144 boxes containing approximately 18,000 balls of yarn! Nobody was more surprised than Sharon at the huge amount of stock stacked on the floor when we’d finished.
Having all the stock in one place will be a far more efficient way of working compared to working on a split site as we have been doing. However it’s also made us realise that we have quite a lot of yarn so the next job is to sort the stock out and then carry out a full stock check.
After that we will be moving our office into the studio so we can finally take full advantage of having a proper dedicated space to run the whole business from. Once that’s sorted out we will turn our attention to getting the showroom ready so we can invite the public in and hopefully get a few of the balls of yarn sold!
