This used to be a blog post about the 449 pounds of yarn that was delivered to our house. But for some reason the post disappeared. Like it's gone. Sometimes the internet slays me.
Anyway, 1,700 skeins of yarn weighs a lot. 1,700 skeins of yarn in awkwardly large boxes are a pain to walk up three flights of stairs. And we have to carry those very same boxes down the stairs. Along with boxes from Farmhouse Yarns, Cloud 9 Fabrics, Robert Kaufman, Rowan, and so much more.
After years working as a costume designer and crafting all by my lonesome, I started wondering if there was a way to do what I loved (sewing, crafting, fashioning stuff out of vintage finds, etc.) all the time and not do it alone. I read about San Francisco’s Stitch Lounge and while I never got to go there, I was really sad when they closed their doors. I was envious of all the people who had a place to go make something while getting to hang out with other people itching to make something, too.
Years later I noticed that stitch lounges were popping up all over the country. And in Canada. But there wasn’t one in my neck of the woods.
