Who Are We?

Our goals at Yarn Stories are:
- to bring together and help support our local fiber community
- offer better quality and selection of fiber related products to our city
- educate community members by teaching them the skills necessary to maintain a lifelong hobby
Lauren Back (Owner/Knitting & Spinning Teacher)
A life-long lover of arts and crafts, Lauren learned how to knit when her boss showed her the steps to make a simple dishcloth. Countless hours of internet instruction and many trips to fiber-festivals (and yarn stores) both in and out of the state, helped Lauren advance her skills and turn a part-time hobby into a full-time passion. Lauren is not only a wheel and spindle spinner, but an avid knitter and a beginner crocheter. She is always working on advancing and expanding her skills and crafts.
