Now THIS is Awesome Creativity!

Here at Beverly's we know that we have creative customers, but sometimes that creativity really blows us away. Take these blankets designed and created by Rocklin customer,  Diana Hardy, for example. Her attention to detail and the accuracy of the logos is amazing!

Diana is a long time customer who purchases all her yarn at Beverly's in Rocklin to create these special sports team blankets and more. Here's what she had to say about shopping at Beverly's.

"I wanted to say thank you so much for your employees. They are the most awesome that I have found anywhere. I keep coming back because they are always smiling and make me feel important when I come in. Your store has a lifetime customer because of the way I am treated when I come in."

Diana always brings her new creations in to share with the staff in the store. And we're always excited to see what she's made!

Diana's daughters Chelsea (above) and Amanda (pictured below right with Diana) agree with us that her mom is one creative lady! She's even won awards for her blankets, like her Browning Country Girl, which was a winner in this contest.

Rocklin manager, Kim, got it right when she told us, "A picture really is worth a thousand words." While it's fun for us to hear about where the items we sell go, it's even more fun to see what they turn into once they leave our store. Thanks for sharing, Diana!

Beverly's Cares: Clairemont's Joining Hands in San Diego

When Shar, our knitting instructor came to Beverly’s several years ago, so did her commitment to serving the community of San Diego.  Clairemont’s Joining Hands was formed with a group of volunteers that meet at Beverly’s on 6185 Balboa Avenue to join donated blocks together into blankets for charity. Currently the blankets are donated to The Ronald McDonald House, Rady's Children's Hospital, Sharp Hospital Palliative Care, and The Center For Community Solutions.
Anyone can donate blocks that are 7 by 9 inches, knit or crochet, plain or patterned. They can be dropped off at Beverly’s collection box at any time.  Anyone can also come to join donated blocks the last Sunday of every month from 1-3PM. On March 30th Clairemont’s Joining Hands had 14 volunteers show up who joined together 24 finished blankets, over 200 blocks came in and 12 blankets are in progress! These blankets will be divided between the 4 locations mentioned above. Beverly’s would like to thank all those who participated and look forward to seeing everyone again in the months to come. 
“This is our way of enabling our customers to give back in a way that puts their beautiful creations to a wonderful use while letting others know we care”, said Beverly’s knitting instructor Shar Pulver. Store Manager, Peggy Leslie added, “Beverly’s is a family-owned & operated California company that is committed to empowering our stores and their local communities to serve those in need”.
