Katie has had an interest in textiles since her childhood:
This strong introduction to Fibre Arts carried over into Katie’s adult life and into the lives of her family, “I taught the girls in my college dorm to crochet, and my first job out of college was teaching sewing classes. Before starting Yarn Love, I actually ran a long-arm quilting business. For me, working with textiles is an essential part of who I am. Now that my own children are growing up, you’ll find various knitting projects and balls of yarn adorning every corner of our house. On the weekends, you’ll find us lined up on the couch in a tangle of various yarns and projects.”
Katie’s drive behind dyeing yarn comes from her desire to bring more color and joy into the lives of her customers, “Life is busy—for me, a beautiful skein of yarn offers the opportunity to slow down and appreciate the joy of everyday moments. A spark of color, a hand crafted sweater, the joy of brushing cashmere across your cheek…these are the moments that come together to craft a creative life.”
Yarn Love, Katie’s hand-dyed yarn business, offers a curated collection of artisan dyed, luxury skeins of yarn, “Each skein is dyed with love and attention to detail. My collection is designed to transform a commodity into an opportunity for delight. It’s my hope that when you unwrap a skein of Yarn Love, the color will sing to your soul and add joy to every stitch.”
