As we bid farewell to 2023, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the incredible journey we’ve had at Baaad Anna’s – a year filled with yarn, community, and heartwarming moments. Join us as we stroll down memory lane, celebrating the highlights that made this year so special.
1. Staff Retreat in Whistler: One of the standout moments of the year was our unforgettable Staff Retreat in the picturesque backdrop of Whistler’s serene landscape, the baaad Anna’s team found their creative haven. Surrounded by towering peaks and lush greenery, the retreat provided the perfect setting to work on their individual knitting projects and WIPs. With each stitch, they not only created beautiful creations but hoards of laughter.

2. Vibrant Markets and Connections: Baaad Anna’s journeyed beyond our cozy store walls to vibrant markets, where we had the pleasure of meeting and connecting with our incredible community. From local craft fairs to bustling knit city, these events provided the perfect platform to showcase our passion for quality yarn and connect with fellow knitting enthusiasts. Your support at these markets fueled our excitement and reinforced the sense of belonging within our community.
3. The Power of Generosity – Your Donations: Our hearts swell with gratitude for the generous spirit of the community. Throughout the year, your thoughtful donations made a significant impact on those in need. Whether it was contributing to charitable projects or supporting local causes, your kindness has touched lives and exemplified the power of a community that cares.
As we turn the page to a new year, we carry these memories with us, weaving them into the fabric of Baaad Anna’s story. We’re excited for the adventures that lie ahead and the continued opportunity to share our love for yarn with you.
Thank you for being an integral part of our 2023 journey. Here’s to more creativity, connection, and community in 2024!
