This shop has been a long time dream, a future plan, a much needed resource for Melbourne’s Inner West and the Australian fibre community as a whole. For almost four years now, I have carried this shop in my head, thinking that it would be something that would happen ‘when I found the right business partner’, ‘when my kids were older’, ‘when I had time’. Then earlier this year, when discussing these future plans yet again, a good, very clever and business minded friend gently asked, ‘ how will you feel if someone else does it first?’. And in my answer, I knew. I knew it was time. Time to jump in, embrace the fear, embrace change and create something new and hopefully amazing.
