Consciously Crafting

Hello McKnittey friends!

We're two friends who met through quilting and realized we had similar goals in life. We each wanted meaningful work - work that would make an impact. This need to "make a difference" has inspired us to open a store with yarn that is mindfully produced. We strive to provide you with the most natural, sustainable fingering and lace weight yarns. We are not a big box craft store and our yarn is not big box either. 

Many of the yarns we carry are made from alternative fibers. We invite you to explore yak, llama, possum and pearl. Some are free trade yarns. With each purchase, you will be impacting the futures of orphans and vulnerable children by providing education and resources that will allow their dreams to become realities. Come be a part of our community.

Hello

Hollywood Knitting - Ann Sheridan

Ann is a Denton, Texas girl. Her official website says, “Ann Sheridan was born on Sunday February 21st, 1915, in Denton Texas. She came into the world as Clara Lou Sheridan. Growing up on a ranch, Ann became quite the tomboy. She could bulldog a steer. She knew how to ride a horse exceptionally well and she was a pretty good shot with a gun."

Rosalind Russell was born 1907 in Waterford, CT. Best known roles of hers are "His Girl Friday" & "The Women". Although she was frustrated with being typecast as a "lady", she was able to transform these roles into roles as strong, intelligent, independent women who went against societal norms. She also showed a brilliant gift for comedy.
