Julie grew up on the Cape and was first introduced to knitting, crochet and sewing by her grandmother Fran. She fell hard for all things hand made, which led her to study fashion design in Paris for several years. She then spent 12 years in the Boston area, designing sneakers for Converse and recently moved back home to Cape Cod to start a family with her partner Stone, and to pursue her dream of collaborating with a local community of fiber enthusiasts. She lives in Cummaquid with Stone, and their 3 children.
Nancy learned to knit at eight years old, and has never stopped. Through the years, while raising kids and working full-time in a demanding profession (sadly unrelated to fiber), she has always had a couple of knitting projects going, and like most fiber addicts, her stash of yarn and fleece is out of control. Still her favorite souvenir when traveling anywhere in the world is locally sourced yarn. (After all, it’s not stash; it’s a souvenir!). Besides knitting, she loves to spin, weave, hand dye yarn and fleece, and design knitted and woven garments. Being part of Team Salt gives me a chance to indulge in these fun activities, and meet lots of other fiber addicts at the same time.
Maureen learned to knit from her mother while growing up in the Boston area, and has been at it ever since. She worked at a yarn shop throughout college and grad school in NH and spent more time knitting and planning projects than studying.
She love working with wooly yarns and choosing fun color palettes and special buttons for knitting projects.
Maureen ives in Yarmouth Port with Dennis and has two grown children and an adorable grandson.
Sarah has been in love with yarn since she was 6 years old and her first grade teacher taught her to knit. and has been knitting ever since! She is married to Mickey, and has three grown children, Benjamin, Carly , and Sam. Sarah is a retired dental hygienist and worked for her dad for 20 years in CT. She moved to Eastham full time 5 years ago. Last year, she found Salt Yarn Studio and it quickly became her favorite shop. She hopes to meet you and work with you to find your favorite yarn and patterns.
