Staff

What we all have in common is our love of fiber and knitting. We’re also committed to making sure that our customers come away with the same love!

Joan has owned Yarns Unlimited for 22 years. She has the best stash in the world and always is knitting for one of her many grandchildren.

Anne is our artist in residence. She wears everything she knits with great style! Not only is she a prolific knitter, she draws, embroiders, paints and more and does it all fabulously!

Cathy has been knitting, sewing, embroidering and doing needlepoint since a teenager. A Flight Attendant in her past life, she tries (unsuccessfully, at times) to keep us all organized.

Dawne is the newest member of our family. A long time customer, we recently convinced her to come join our yarny doings. Not only is she a sweet lady and terrific knitter, she also has floral talent! Come in and say “hi” to our new recruit!

 Joanna is a terrific finisher and a sometimes obsessive knitter. In her spare time, she is a coxswain for local masters rowing teams. (PS-Ask her about knitting Barbie clothes!)

Kitty is a technical writer by training and trade. She is also an accomplished lace knitter. Ask to see what’s on her IPad that she’s planning to knit next!

Pam is the continental knitter among us. She is also an accomplished flutist. Not only does she teach Beginning Knitting, she has taught flute for years.

Rebecca our overachiever! She knits, designs, spins and dyes yarn. A student at a local divinity school, she is working on a special project that is due to be finished on Valentines’ Day 2013.

Sandy a lifelong knitter and seamstress-Sandy actually admits to having a huge stash! She also spins and weaves and occasionally takes part in Sheep to Shawl competitions. She has recently begun playing the harp.

Gift Guide!!!

Here’s a few suggestions of some great gifts to give or get!!

sheepbags

First up are some sheep-y things:

Linen project bags from Lantern Moon with either a white or black sheep embroidered on.

A darling eyeglass case, again with an embroidered sheep. ( this one is sporting red glasses!)

Sheep made from vetiver. Vetiver is grown on the mountainsides in Haiti to provent soil erosion caused by deforestation. The root is a natural moth repellent.

lmbags

 

Next we have a variety of silk cases..some for interchangeable sets, some for circulars, some for double points. In the back is a great project bag from Yarn Pop-the clutch-enough room for a project and essentials like a phone and wallet.

needles

We have lots of needle sets – interchangeable circulars and double points.

afghans

 

A glorious gift for a knitter or non knitter, a beautiful afghan kit from Mountain Colors. ( of course there would be a promise to KNIT the afghan for the non knitter!)

Perhaps less of a commitment would be to knit one of these cute beaded bracelets…

stereo

 

…Laura Nelkin’s Stereo Cuff kit!  To make for a non knitter, or give the kit as a fun project for a knitter.

Stop in to see us soon for more gift ideas!
