Late last night we reached an exciting milestone: our 400th Facebook fan! Clever Knits has been hovering at 398-399 Facebook fans for the last two months, so this is quite a moment for us. 400 fans! 400 amazing people who support our dream, our little local yarn shop! I'm getting weepy just thinking about it.
For those of you who haven't found us there yet, becoming a fan on Facebook is one of the best ways to keep abreast of what's going on in the shop. We also twitter many of the same updates, so you can follow us there if you prefer that medium (tweets can even be delivered to your cell phone via text message).
We've said all along that building a community of knitters and crocheters is the most special and important part of having our little yarn shop, and our online community certainly reflects that ideal. Word of mouth (or keyboard, as the case may be) is one of the most powerful ways to share this community with friends and family, so please pass on this fabulous news to yours. It would be amazing if we could reach 500 fans before 2009 is over.
