So Much Talent and Creativity

There are so many creative people who are or have been associated with Great Yarns and Yarns etc. Interweave Crochet Magazine has a new Editor- Marcy Smith Rice lives in Raleigh and is doing an excellent job at the magazine. Marcy wrote a crafts column for theRaleigh News and Observer before going to work for Interweave. In between jobs she helped us out at Great Yarns. We enjoy seeing each and every Interweave Crochet that has Marcy's creative touch.
A featured column in Interweave Crochet - Craftivism- is written by Betsy Greer. Betsy has been working at Yarns etc... in Chapel Hill for several months.

Betsy is also the author of Knitting for Good. We all know how much knitting and crafting have made our lives better. Betsy confirms that with her book about how the more we knit and craft the better off the whole world is. Thank you Betsy for putting this in print for all of us to enjoy

This is the latest issue of Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts. The hat ON THE COVER was designed and made by Catherine Shields. There are 2 more colorways shown in the magazine. Catherine worked at Yarns etc... when we were still in Carrboro. She is in school in California and has obviously not been too busy to keep up with her very fine knitting- and now- designing skills. I know we will see more of her work in future publications.

Congratulations to all of you talented and creative ladies!
