I believe that this is a fantastic step forward for the Oak Park fiber artist community in general, allowing us to support and encourage the development of the existing local fiber arts community, and to help it grow. It’s wonderful to be able to help artists and independent crafters do what they love.
My vision: A Dye studio and Artists space, Indie dyed yarn store, center for fiber arts classes, and community hub promoting diversity, inclusion, and intersectionality. It will be a place to create, to build community, and to sell our yarn and art. It will be a place to grow together, and learn, and teach others. Working together to lift each other into prosperity.
I want to set down roots in the arts district. To draw consumers to the neighbourhood who might not have otherwise found the area on their own. I'm hoping to partner with other Arts district businesses so that we can collaborate on classes and community events, and share opportunities for inclusion in the annual Chicago yarn crawl.
I'm so excited, and nervous, and full of butterflies! The possibilities are endless, and I'm thrilled to be able to create this new community.
