Letters to the editor: Yarn and Yoga deserved mention in Bristol story

Although I applaud your piece on women-led businesses in Bristol in the July 26 edition, I am astounded that you could do such an article and not even mention Yarn and Yoga. This is a business owned and operated collaboratively by seven women. The shop has become the destination yarn shop in this part of the state, with a wonderful selection of yarns and gifts. They also offer expert knitting advice to customers as well as a diverse selection of yoga classes and inspirational events. They are such a great example of what women can accomplish, so I could not let it go without mentioning that they were surprisingly left out of your article.
Thank you for highlighting the fact that Bristol has been so enriched by our female entrepreneurs. It is a great town with so much to offer.

When I saw the recent article on the vibrant women-owned and -run businesses and the resulting business climate in Bristol, I kept reading, fully expecting a glowing account of one of the most fantastic in an impressive group: Yarn and Yoga. It is a business owned and run cooperatively by seven creative and talented women who have all been successful previously in their chosen professions and decided to follow a different passion for the next chapter of their lives. It was shocking to me that I reached the end without even a mention of Yarn and Yoga by Christopher Ross, the writer.
What a huge omission!
Yarn and Yoga is a full-service yarn, knitting and needlework emporium offering classes and camaraderie for knitters and other needle workers near and far. It is also a yoga studio, offering a variety of yoga classes and related workshops for men and women. Talk about collaboration and cooperation, the Yarn and Yoga women embody those attributes to their very core! I admire them all and recommend to Mr. Ross that he stop into Yarn and Yoga to see what he missed.

Editor’s note: They’re right, Yarn and Yoga would have been a prime example of what the article was trying to say. As the story mentions, there are at least 22 women-owned or women-run businesses in Bristol and we were sorry that we couldn’t mention them all by name.
