HELLO MY NAME IS CYNDI & I’M A YARNAHOLIC
“I take fluff and turn it into string
so you can make clothes & other pretty things”
I was born in England, grew up in California, had an extended stay in Vermont, and now call Arkansas home.
I have three boys, a fun-loving dog, and a wonderful husband who I couldn’t manage without. My life’s turned upside down about 95% of the time. Living upside down definitely makes life much more interesting.
I’m an avid knitter and full-time spinner. Most knitters have yarn stashes, well, “stash” for me, would be an understatement. My sister calls me “The Crazy Yarn Lady” and I sheepishly admit, it’s true. Although lately, I do tend to have many more UFO’s than finished objects. I figure I can make the yarn and you can go finish the project.
Knitting introduced me to yarn. A new love affair spawned. I wanted all the yarn I could get my hands on and then I wanted more. Learning to hand paint yarn and then spin my own seemed to be the most natural next steps. Of course next would be owning a sheep or heck, a whole fiber farm…a girl can always dream.
After years of doing craft shows and festivals, and wholesaling our products worldwide, the hubby caved in and we’ve now opened a local yarn shop in Conway, Arkansas. The yarn shop has a wonderfully messy studio space in the back for production of our Handspun Yarns, Felted Soaps, Wool Dryer Balls, and any other handmade fibery fun we can figure out.
I’m just a simple girl on a mission to enable Yarnaholics all around the world by producing handmade yarn and other fiber creations for others to use & enjoy. Happy crafting!
