Change of Management

Mel Clark, owner of Wildfiber, and author of Knit 2 Together has sold the store and is relocating to New Zealand. She bought wildfiber six years ago. It was a fiber arts studio back then, mostly focusing on weaving and dyeing. She turned it into the warm, friendly, classy and very well-stocked LYS it is today.

We're going to miss you, Mel!

The silver lining is that Wildfiber has been bought by one of its loyal customers, Natasha Shapiro Hopkins. I met Natasha today and she is delightful. She loves knitting and loves the store. It seems that she is living her dream becoming the owner of an incredible yarn store.

And at least I got Mel to sign my book.
