Hello! I’m delighted to meet you and I’m looking forward to getting to know you! I’ve been a knitter for over 20 years and am passionate about the craft and sharing it with others. I firmly believe everyone is creative and work every day to help folks unleash their creative potential and/or just feel comfortable testing the waters of making.
I learned to knit as a child, but put it down for a bit until I found myself in graduate school in a new city, far from friends and family. Knitting – making, actually – was my comfort then, and still is, in a way! I’m a TKGA member, knitting instructor, and fiber-fest addict! At any given time, I have four projects on the needles, and I’m not ashamed to say that, even though I know better, I often start without a gauge swatch just to see what’ll happen!
As we move through this transition, please feel free to reach out to me personally with questions, comments, ideas – they’re all welcome. My professional background in brand strategy and activation will, I hope, be a benefit to the “new” shop, and I’ve already been in contact with some existing customers about opportunities for new activities, classes and even investing! We are currently working on finalizing an investor packet for those who are interested – this is so much more than a yarn and fabric shop, it’s a part of the fabric (See what I did there? I’m also terribly punny!) of the community and including interested folks in the decisions and the work are crucial to success!
Here’s hoping we’re all looking forward to a bright future and at the same time, honoring the legacy that Lysha has built so that it continues to flourish in years to come. And, speaking of Lysha, please join me in thanking her for her graciousness in agreeing to stay around a bit in a new and more consultative role. She’s the fiber (I did it again!) that runs through all of this; we can’t wait to work on what’s next together!
