SURPRISE Flash Mob Shopping Spree

Friends of The Naked Sheep Knit Shop gathered at Atomic Pizza on Sunday afternoon (April 9), paraded down the street to the shop at about 2pm with balloons, flowers, treats, and lots of hugs; and completely surprised me with a Surprise Flash Mob Shopping Spree! Big thanks to Jenna from Atomic Pizza for organizing this amazing event, to Kristin (still my head purl girl) for running the cash register so I could enjoy the afternoon, and to all my lovely customers, family, and neighbor businesses that participated in the
afternoon. I am truly blessed, and am so thankful for the amazing community that has developed at The Naked Sheep.

A Sad Day for The Naked Sheep

Unfortunately, I have some sad news to share with you all...

After 12 wonderful years, The Naked Sheep Knit Shop is closing its doors. We love our customers and our neighborhood, where we have lived for over 25 years. We are very grateful for your business, support, and encouragement all these years.

Unfortunately, it has become too difficult to make ends meet.  Our current lease expires May 31, and our landlord is demanding a large increase that makes it impossible for us to remain here. In light of the current economic climate in Portland, we also can’t afford to move. So we will turn out the lights when our lease is up at the end of May.

We have made many new friends and shared so many precious life events with you. We will keep an online presence, and Cheri will still be active in the Portland knitting community, working and teaching at Twisted in NE Portland.

Thank you for helping us fulfill our dream; the past 12 years have been amazing! We are looking forward to a new chapter in our lives; as well as keeping in touch with you!

-Cheri and Brad
