DYE ALL THE COLORS! Working in the Fiber Arts was not a path I saw in my life, but I have always been into the arts. I taught music in public schools for 10 years prior to the evolution of Yarn Baby. When I became a mom, spending more time with my little people became a high priority and I went from teaching full-time to part-time to stop teaching all together.
Then entered the YARN! My babies only liked blankies made of yarn, so I started calling them my little “Yarn Babies” -- thus the name of my shop. Now my boys are little fiber experts preferring blankets made with bamboo and/or silk so they “feel cold.” They know their fibers! :-)
I started with crochet, then took a spinning class, started dyeing roving (for my own use) and then fell head over heels in love with dyeing yarn. So here I am…spinning, dyeing and selling yarn. RADICAL!
