First Meeting at Joseph Beth

The Joseph Beth was everything we hoped for. We met on the second floor around a fire place. We have a couch and padded arm chairs. This is compared to a used kitchen table and chair that have been salvaged from the garbage of the South Side.

I still love the Bee Hive. And it do not like the idea of going to a big chain. Still Scott and Steve {the owners of the Bee Hive} so not stress customer service in any way. I suppose it is easy to say that rude is cool. I looked at the Starbucks across the street and several other cafes in the area. The bottom line is that the chain store is willing to treat us well.

I like the sort of Independence that the Hive represents. Still, there is a line when people just need to be treated right.

On other fronts the class schedule for December is up on the web site. We are also working on January. Hopefully I will get it up on this blog soon.

Well I hope to see you all at Hive Knitting. Be safe out there and keep your stick on the ice.

Glad to hear the meeting at Joseph Beth went well. And comfy chairs and a couch are certainly appreciated by those of us who sit and knit for long periods at a time and errr...don't have much padding.

I can understand your resistance to Starbucks and desire to support smaller independent businesses over major chains. But I also feel that in order to stay in business, any shop, regardless of size, has a responsibility to provide good customer service. That's what it comes down to in the end.

Rudeness is NOT cool and good manners never go out of style. (Okay, I'll hop off the soapbox now!)

Well, I'm really glad I finally looked at your blog! I didn't know it had been moved. I'm actually running late and I'm on my way there now. Though the weather stinks. *Brrr!*
