Why art yarn? Why from you?

Often at craft shows or at the farmers market, I’ll get asked these very smart questions, or a variation on them: Why would I buy art yarn? What can I do with it? Why would I buy it from you, and not from a more well-known company? These are really good, honest, thoughtful questions. I […]
