News, news, news!
This has been a busy time and you will soon see why. First the shop is now open daily, Mondays- Saturdays 10 - 6 and Sundays noon - 4. You can leave messages at any time by email or phone and we will get back to you soon.
Before we get into our regular welcoming comments we wish to announce that the owner, Linda, has sold the shop as of November 17, 2013. No, it is not going to disappear; in fact it may even get better! While I don't classify my self as old, I do collect all my Seniors benefits, meagre as they are. I still work long hours and as of this month will have had a work career of 50 years. I have enjoyed the arts in many ways over the years but just keeping a business going has put a damper on that and now I feel it is time for me to play a little.
I believe I have found the best possible new owner that I could have dreamed of. She is Lesley Snyder and for those of you who know the County, Lesley has been running the Galloping Goat opposite Black River Cheese. She is artistic and funny, is a graduate of Sheridan College and knits, felts and now is exploring spinning. She also has business smarts with retail experience and is 20 years younger than me. Hurrah! That should keep Rose Haven going for quite a while. To top it off her husband is a web designer and so she will be adding an online store to complement the business. Keep tuned!

Welcome to Rose Haven Farm Store in downtown Picton, Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada Rose Haven Farm Store is a delightful funky shop at 187 Main Street, north side, not far from Elizabeth Street. The Store specializes in being, as one customer described it, the Vogue of yarn shops ~ a fabulous experience for fibre aficionados, including fibre artists looking for the unusual. The Store is also a great place to find handmade gifts from the County and region as well as products based on sheep. And recently we got called The Fibreholics Pharmacy! Wow!
We are at 187 Main Street, Picton. Our location gives us a real Main Street presence, more space ~ you should see our lower area for fibres and workshops~ and at last, display windows. Now you really can find us! The shop is sunny & bright, quite a delight. Still all the same goodies but so much easier for you to see what products we carry and to move round in the shop.
We always have fantastic items in our Clearance Area downstairs and regularly add new bargains. Be sure to check out our lower area, also the location of our fibres, embellishments, rug hooking materials and even stitch & dissolve supplies.
There are times when Linda is not in the shop. If you wish to contact us in the shop, please use the email that goes directly into the shop: email@example.com. You could connect with Diane, Erika, Chris, Lynn or Michelle.
While Knitting Club is now closed if you have a specific need for help please just call us or come by and we will find you help.
Some of our major workshops are now over but we have more coming up. Just look under Workshops
