Plum Tree Yarn Shop celebrated a Red Ribbon Cutting Ceremony hosted by the Milan Area Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 24.  The store is located 28 E. Main in downtown Milan.
 Area business owners came to celebrate with owners, Jen and Kim Hofer.  Before Jen cut the ribbon with the big scissors, she thanked, “all who have supported us thus far.”
 Mayor Dominic Hamden complimented the venue and said with the arrival of Plum Tree, the entire block on Main St. was fully occupied for the first time in 30 some years.
 The Red Ribbon groupies, Lori Blakeman and Claudia Hale, showed up.  These ladies attend all the ribbon cutting ceremonies.  They said they like to show support for all the new businesses.
 However, this time Hale, who knows how to crochet, had an agenda.  She decided to take advantage of the shop’s knitting lessons.  She was last seen entering her information in the computer.
 Also, interested in lessons was Heidi Singh of Monroe, who is now the new manager of the Culver Estates apartment complex.  Singh said she was interested in introducing herself to other business and organization persons.
 With that taken care of, she spoke with personnel inquiring about lessons.  Singh said her mother taught her to knit when she was a child.  Honing her skills, she said, would be necessary.
 Singh has some big plans to use her skill starting a crafting circle at her Turning Point Church in Adrian.
 She’s come to the right place for her needs.  Pattern books and needles hang on the wall; a variety of yarns are distributed throughout the space.  A few brands carried are Ella Rae, Cascade, Plymouth, Brown Sheep, Berroco, and Wool & The Gang.
 Lessons other than knitting are offered.  A beginner’s crochet class is available.  Blocking and assembly will be addressed as well. And, a Sit and Stich is held on Wednesday evenings.  Lots of help there. 
 Visit their Facebook page to see all they offer.  For more information, call 734-999-7859 or email kim [at] plumtreeyarnshop [dot] com.  Visit their website at www.plumtreeyarnshop.com.
