P.S. Wow! We've had a nearly overwhelming response to this sale. Thank you so much! But now we need to get busy processing all of these orders so they get to your door, so on Thursday, April 19 our California warehouse will be closed to the public. Our website will still be up and running and so will our New York City store and the Purl Bee!
