From left to right: Lori, Janet, Carol, Emily & Fran.
The staff members at Fidalgo Artisan Yarn & Clothing are passionate about yarns and fibers. And what is so unique, and frankly so amazing, is that each of us has a different fiber focus and differing expertise. The thing we have in common is our love to create and our love to share with and help others. You won’t find another shop like ours.
LORI. As shop owner and hand-dyeing mastermind, Lori revels in the magic of creating walls of color. Lori is in the shop Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday and enjoys assisting our shop guests with color, fit, fiber, and design ideas.
FRAN. As our knitting instructor extraordinaire, Fran is well known and loved by many who have taken her classes, been part of her groups, and sought out her expert help and encouragement. As a master knitter, her love of knitting is outdone only by her love of sharing the ins and outs of it with those of us lucky enough to be in her orbit. Fran also designs most of our shop patterns. She is in the shop on Sunday.
JANET. Janet comes to us by way of the larger Fidalgo/Whidbey fiber world, and brings to us her love of knitting, crocheting and a good strong cup of coffee. Fearless in her sense of color, she’ll happily lay out different combinations and help you knit up various swatches until just the right one makes your heart sing. Janet is in the shop on Thursday.
CAROL. Much loved, Carol is our Yarn Clinic guru, master knitter, and also teaches a class or two. Bringing her own particular and wonderful version of practical creativity to our table, Carol has never ending ideas and solutions to problems and project questions.
EMILY. Emily has moved back to New York. We will miss her!
