Twisted News:

What’s New?

Thank you!
We have had one of our busiest months ever! We had three shows plus the first shipment for our club all in a four week span. Whew!
We had a lovely time at the Wine and Wool festival in our neighboring town of Jackson, MI. The name says it all, and what could be better than a day spent with both Wine and Wool!
Next we hit Chicago for Stitches Midwest. So many of you stopped by to shop, chat, and show off your projects. While in the area we ventured into the city to catch a show with our daughters (Hamilton of course!) and to top off an already fantastic week we got to meet and talk with Kristy Glass of Kristy Glass Knits! She was lovely and really made us feel very special. Thank you Kristy!
Finally, we made it out to the Michigan Fiber Fest in Allegan, Michigan. The show was hot, but filled with a diverse and wonderful selection of fiber goodies! We spent the week camping and visiting with some of our favorite fiber friends (Shout out to Helena of Oink Pigments and Steve and Amanda of Leading Men Fiber Arts!).

Thank all of you who came out to see us, and Welcome to all of you who are new to our Twisted little corner of the world. We are so grateful to have you all in our family.

Bread and Roses!
This club is a huge source of pride for our team. We have worked hard to make it as special as possible. We really wanted the club experience to be as memorable as the colorways it represents. Feedback from the first shipment has begun to stream in and the reviews are fantastic! One of our Twisties and Ravelry moderators TwistedSoprano even did an unboxing video. Take a peek and see what our members are getting this month.

You can also Visit the CLUB IS COMING thread in our Ravelry group to share in the excitement and anticipation.

Twisted was started in 2005 as a way to help support my family while I was a stay-at-home mom until I went back to work. Eventually I realized I was at work. I think it's safe to say that Twisted is going to be around for a while! I was lucky to start selling my handspun around the time Etsy was catching on. I learned a lot about yarn and knit fabrics and what I wanted them to look like. This information was crucial to the development of my current process. Soon I was selling lots of striping sock yarn (mostly Arial and Duchess). Demand grew and so did Twisted. Aggie came to work with me. She could skein so precisely and measure dyes so accurately! (I still miss her. But she is now a stay-at-home mom and volunteer for animal rescue and I wish her well!) While she was here we moved to our current studio space and switched to our own website. My mother, Anne, is even more experienced with computers than she is with knitting (very!). She helped a ton with the new site which allows for more options, customization and flexibility. She also does our sample knitting and lots of random yarn and computer tasks. My husband does the books and washes the yarn. Both of our kids help out as their busy schedules permit. I love having a family business! I was lucky to start selling from my own site about the time Ravelry was catching on. I think that might be the magic ingredient to my small business success! Thank you Casey and Jess! As much as I love striping sock yarn, I was longing to move in a new direction: Evolutions. This had been part of my master plan from the beginning, but sock yarn kept me busy until I couldn't hold it in any longer. Then I really needed more help! Anne Bohl joined the team and added her style and skills to the mix. She quickly became indispensable and is now a partner in the business. We are both so grateful for the opportunity to be able to put our families first while helping support our families and interact with the lovely yarn community! Thanks to all of you for making this possible! The Twisted Studio was housed in the servant's quarters of my 150 year old Italianate home for seven years until we were bursting at the seams. We are now located around the corner in a great store called Kean's - a crafter's paradise that has been run by the same family for nearly 100 years. It is the cutest store around and we are lucky to have enough space there to do the dyeing for our webstore as well as a small but beautiful retail spot. So come see us, we'd love to meet you face to face! See store hours, address and contact info here. Cheers! Meg
