Sybil Osterhoudt started her small, but fantastically well stocked shop in 1973, passing her fondness for fiber, and her business, onto me, her daughter Jeanetta. The creativity, the camaraderie and the care that we have experienced over the years, has touched us undeniably. We look forward to many years to come as your #1 resource to make your inspiration into your reality.
My mother never thought I would be a knitter. If you ever come visit us (and I hope you do!), Sybil will inevitably tell you of my first knitting experience at the age of 9, when she cast on some stitches and I proudly returned a "sticky, dirty, sweaty swatch that I could almost break in half if I bent it in two; but now, she can knit anything!" I think Mom was the first one to think, 'well geez, if I get my kid into knitting, she'll never have money for drugs.'
In January 2017, Sybil retired and passed the business on to me. We moved to a larger location about 5 miles away and have been hosting classes and knit ins as often as we can. If it has something to do with the fiber arts, we'll try to have a class on it. We hope to see you all soon at the new shop!
