What is your fiber art focus? (Knit, weave, etc)

I am primarily a knitter, but I learned to spin during COVID and I love it!

Current yarn obsession?

It is always changing, but right now I'm really enjoying String Turin; a gorgeously soft cashmere tweed.

Are you a process knitter or product knitter?

Definitely a process knitter! Give me miles of garter stitch and reruns of Schitt's Creek and I'm a happy girl.

What is your fiber art focus?

Knitting is my focus, with sweater knitting being my passion. I love modifying a sweater pattern to fit just right. The more math the better!

Current yarn obsession?

Hand dyed yarns, like Malabrigo, are what really fueled my love of knitting when I first got started. Lately the Farmer's Daughter hand dyed yarns have been my frequent go to for all projects from sweaters to socks. Their rich colors and luscious fibers keep me reaching for them with every new project.

Are you a process knitter or product knitter?

Definitely a product knitter with a capital P. I want all the sweaters and I want to wear them now! I knit with every spare moment I have. My hands are never idle.

Words of wisdom (favorite quote)

Always knit a swatch to check your gauge. And wash your swatch too! Most patterns will say some version of "save time by checking gauge" and it's really true. Swatch always.

When I’m not crafting I’m...

Firstly I am almost always crafting, but when not I'm probably playing a board game or cooking...or sleeping.


CORINNA Sales Representative
What is your fiber art focus?

I knit, crochet, spin and dabble in weaving.

Current yarn obsession?

I do love working with Spincycle yarns but I have always been a huge Malabrigo fan as well.

Are you a process knitter or product knitter?

I'm happiest when I can combine the two but if I had to choose, I prefer product knitting.

SARAH Sale Representative
What is your fiber art focus? (Knit, weave, etc)

I’m bistitchual (meaning I knit and crochet), but I also love frame loom weaving and punch needle.

Current yarn obsession?

I am pretty smitten with the entire line of Brooklyn Tweed yarns, especially Shelter. Their wools are amazing to work with, plus they’re located here in Oregon.

Are you a process knitter or product knitter?

Definitely a process knitter. No matter the circumstance, no matter my mood, knitting is my most effective form of decompression - almost a meditation. It doesn’t matter what I’m making, as long as my hands are moving.

“I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.” - Kurt Vonnegut

When I’m not crafting I’m...

busy being a mama, outside exploring the PNW, or blasting music in my kitchen while cooking something yummy.

Are you a process knitter or product knitter?

Definitely a process knitter. I like to enjoy every stitch.

I like to start the day with this question: "What would love have me do today?" - Jack Kornfield

When I’m not crafting I’m...

Reading, cooking, hiking/walking, hanging with my husband and dogs.


CORY Sales Representative
What is your fiber art focus? (Knit, weave, etc)

Knitting, but I’m starting to crochet again.

Current yarn obsession?

Brooklyn Tweed Tones, Shibui Haven, Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, Juniper Moon Farm Patagonia Organic Merino, and Spincycle Dyed In the Wool.. um I have more that I have in my stash that I haven’t gotten to yet.

Are you a process knitter or product knitter?

Both. I need to like and hopefully love the yarn I’m knitting with and be excited about what I’m making.

Words of wisdom (favorite quote)

I have lots of favorites but right now it’s “Every ‘No’ makes room for the right ‘Yes.’"

When I’m not crafting I’m...

doing yoga, exercising, reading nutrition/wellness books, or in my garden (but not necessarily working in it)


ELIZABETH Sales Representative
What is your fiber art focus? (Knit, weave, etc)

Knitting. Also a fledging weaver on my 4 harness loom.p>

Current yarn obsession?

So many favorites! Currently: Isager, Rosy Green Wool, Biches et Buches, Juniper Moon Farm. I tend to enjoy a finer gauge for knitting and lean toward a more “natural” or rustic fiber…Unless of course its silk or linen which I also love!

Are you a process knitter or product knitter?

Definitely a process knitter!

Words of wisdom (favorite quote)

Again, so many! However, I do like this Chinese Proverb: “Keep a green tree in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come.”

When I’m not crafting I’m...

wishing I were! Presently consumed in the midst of a huge makeover of our new home! I love playing with our horses and savoring the beauty of Nature.
