A few years ago, I was wandering the aisles of the TNNA yarn industry trade show when I ran into Trish from my knitting group in New York City. It didn’t seem strange to see Trish at a yarn event, but then I realized it was unique that she was at a yarn industry event. Turned out she was opening a yarn shop in her home town of Kansas City, Missouri!
That shop is Yarn Social, which opened in 2018 with a mission to “build and support our community of people who make beautiful things with yarn.” Trish is committed to supporting indie businesses and providing a safe and welcoming space for all yarn lovers, and is a perfect partner for Indie Untangled.
Tell me about the decision to open Yarn Social. Had you always wanted to own a yarn shop? What did you do before you became a yarn shop owner?
Most everything is better when you have a team of people working together. The folks I work with are amazing and creative and have such good ideas and are so generous with them.
