Shop Visitors From Australia

We often get out of town visitors here at the shop. Many times, they’re people who have been ordering online from us for a long time and have included us in their vacation plans, one way or another. We love having people stop by! This week we had one of our Loopy Gold Members from Australia come to visit. It was so great to meet Christine in person, along with her lovely husband Denny,  and her BFF Laurie. She had a great time shopping, and graciously posed with her loot, so we could share it on the blog.

Then her husband called their daughter in Australia (7:30 in the morning there) to get online and see them on the Webcam.

Her daughter is also a knitter, and Denny had her up on his phone via Skype (or Facetime?) and proceeded to take the phone up and down all of the aisles so their daughter could have a virtual tour of the shop as well. What a great dad! Christine has promised to come back for the Fall Fling in 2014, and we’re already looking forward to seeing her again. Thanks for including us in your trip to the States, Christine!

  1. It was such fun watching her shop from here in Scotland. Sheri you truly have an international appeal. I so wish I could have been there too. Hubby has promised me that if we ever win the Lottery a visit to you will be top of our list :)

  2. Ha ha – I think it was too early in the morning for her to think about yarn, yet! (Although Christine probably bought some for her during her shopping excursion.)

  3. Mary – I’m going to have to keep my fingers crossed that you win the Lottery, then. We’d love to have you come see us!

  4. How special is this—- I was one of many stalking her progress on the Webcam yesterday and it was so much FUN!!! I heard you and all the Elves really gave her the experience of a lifetime and what a gracious hostess you were. The Loopy Ewe rocks!!!
    And here we thought dear Hubby was on the phone getting the credit line raised on the credit card. What a great Dad is right!!!
    Sheri Thanks for sharing this with us all!

  5. Oh that is the wave I caught & shared, so Denny wasn’t calling for a larger plane or vehicle. LOL Love you Chris!!! ♥ Thank you Sheri, I heard you were aces to meet, Lord willing one day we will make that trip West to get there too.

    Hi Denny, hope your cold goes away soon, hugz to you both ♥ ♥

  6. I was seriously stalking the web cam when Chris was visiting and watched her gather her loot. Alas, work was calling and I had to leave. Goodness but I had fun watching for a while and seeing all the Elves and Sheri too! Tuesday sure was a busy day! Hugs to all the Loopy Elves that make all this fun come our way. Safe travels Chris and Denny.

  7. Wow!!! What a great trip for her and an awesome husband! I too will get out west to visit everyone at the Loopy!!! I know I would feel right at home!

  8. I had an ABSOLUTE BLAST at The Loopy Ewe on Tuesday!!! It was an amazing experience, and Sheri, Thank You So Very Much for making me so WELCOME!!! Den and I had a ball! It was a dream come true being at TLE for Real!!! And I was rather blown away by all the lovely interest my visit generated! I had a lot of fun reading about it on Ravelry! It was such a special day and I have added some lovely new yarns to my “collection”! I like the idea of doing a Fling in Austrralia one day! Except it would be kind of hard to visit Loopy Central from there!!! ♥ and {{{Hugs}}} to everyone!!!

  9. What I want to know is: Was she a Loopy Gold Member before she arrived at the store or did she do it all in one “live” shopping trip?:)

    Looks like fun folks having a fun time in a fun shop and, like others, I’m a tad jealous.

  10. Wow!!! That was a great read – thanks Sheri for sharing Christine’s visit with all of us. :)
    She definitely did make the most of her trip- in the first photo, I thought I counted 3 bags – but when I saw the 4th in the next one, I had to tell MY hubby we need to plan our trip to Loopy Central soon!!! ;) lol

  11. Yes, you DO all need to come visit here, too!

    Judy – I can’t tell you that (because we keep secrets very well here at Loopy), but Christine can pop in and ‘fess up if she wants! ;-)

  12. Everyone should make a trip to Loopy Central at least once in their life time! It is a wonderful experience to meet Sheri and all the helpful Loopy Elves – everyone is so gracious and welcoming. Just like shopping online at TLE, their customer service is the best I’ve experienced. Thank you all for everything you do to make our experience with TLE so enjoyable.
