Dreams Relocated?

I attended the FPN Philippines pen meet in Glorietta 2 last Saturday and was hoping I could show Jenny and Erika my favorite source for knitting yarns and paraphernalia. I mean, I thought, after raiding the gallery where Rudolph Lietz was disposing of his NOS Lamy Safaris, we could go down the escalator and choose something for Ik to learn knitting with. No such luck. Apparently Glorietta 2 ground floor was being renovated.

I vaguely heard something about Dreams moving to a location within Greenbelt 5. But isn't Greenbelt 5 the hotbed of branded luxury items??? I'll ask Jenny again. I mean to try teaching Ik to knit socks.

This morning I tried calling their existing landline, but that's not in service. I texted Ma'am Lilli (de Leon) to ask about where they put their new store, but so far have not received any reply. Anyway, when I do find out, I'll let you guys know.

UPDATE: My Ravelry friend Bheng of All Stitch Bright and Beautiful noted in the comments that it's now in GLORIETTA 5. I had no idea there was a Glorietta 5! I bought so much yarn last year and I haven't actually used them all up yet, so I haven't been back since my last guilty pleasure purchase of baby merino.

Ma'am Lilli finally replied, "Nice to hear from u. Yes we moved 2 Glorietta 5 3rd flr. Please come visit us. Our new store no. 856-0741."

Bheng, if you don't know how to knit socks yet, I would gladly teach you. Just get yourself some US size 1 / 2.25mm or 2.5mm circular needles 32" or 40" long, and we're good to go.

Hi Bheng, thanks for the heads-up! Am not in Makati that often, so I really appreciate the info :)

I used to knit there weekly with Ma'am Lilli's friends. Now work takes up a lot of my time - don't you just hate it when work gets in the way of knitting! LOL :)

Thanks for this Mona and Bheng. The last time I've been to Makati, I was still pregnant with Una. That must be the reason why I can't find the store the last time I went there.

She said I was kinda advanced for the classes but I bought a lot of stuff and earned the right to hang out there for a while.

Note to Bheng: you have to finish your crochet projects first..hahahaha...
Hi Mona, now I'm torn apart between learning to knit socks and focusing on my crochet designs. Your offer is just too good!

Bugs_and_Berries said...
