Warm Hearts Yarn on Rover Boulevard in White Rock is moving to downtown Los Alamos in August.

The new store will open at 1247 Central, Suite C, between David’s Barber Shop and the Los Alamos Daily Post newspaper headquarters. Owner Katie Brousseau will share the new space with Shellie Kuropatwinski, owner of Atomic City Quilts.

“We’ll share the space about half and half,” Brousseau said. “We’re looking forward to serving the community together.”

Atomic City Quilts will offer bolts of fabric and a cutting table, as well as quilting notions. Both businesses will offer classes. Warm Hearts Yarn will continue to offer its current lines of yarn, as well as needlework notions, supplies, books and magazines and will be offering some new yarn lines.

“Our new location is more central to the whole county,” Brousseau said. “We found a great space that fits our needs.”

The two businesses will rent the space from Shannon Corporation, which owns the building.

“New businesses will bring a focus on the entire area of upper Central,” Brousseau said. “It will be a change, but we think the change will be a good one.”

The last day of business at the White Rock store is July 25. Brousseau and Kuropatwinski will spend August setting up their new spaces and plan for a Sept. 1 Grand Opening.
