We also love to showcase indie dyers in both their yarn and roving, Woolarina, FatCatKnits, Ceyeberfiber and some others can be found at the shop. We carry many exclusives with the Indie Dyers and have many showcased at Maryland Sheep and Wool at our booth (main building booth D2 &D3). This coming festival we are looking forward to showcasing many artists again, some returning from last year and some new ones. We carry Schacht, and Ashford Spinning Wheels and Equipment for sale and rental. We carry hand dyed Rovings and natural Rovings. We also carry needle felting equipment and supplies.
5. How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open a LYS?
Cloverhill Yarn Shop has been in business for many years. It started out in a different location known as the Weavers Place and has gone through some transition between 4 different owners. Currently the shop is owned by Jolene Mosley who took over April 30th 2008. The shop thrives of customer service and a great and varied knowledge in the fiber arts. If you don't see a class that meets your needs consider a private lesson.
6. What's your favorite thing about having a LYS?
My favorite thing about having a LYS is being able to see what everyone is working on. Sounds nosy I know but I get so inspired by so many people and am always impressed in their ideas and skills. I am passionate about the fiber arts and look forward to learning and growing more in these skills.
