I have had some strange jobs so far in my life: I ran IMAX movies for a Science museum, I was an assistant Organ Tuner (the musical instrument), I worked with a non-profit that helps kids build robots. I never really dreamed I would work in a yarn store, but it has been an amazing experience nonetheless.
As some of you may know, before I started working at fibre space my husband and I were in the (long and tedious) process of applying for the Peace Corps–a lifelong dream of mine. On February 23rd we fly to Atlanta to begin our service in the Peace Corps. We will be flying to Honduras the following day for three months of training and two years of service. My last day in the store will be February 4th. I am honored to have met so many of you and seen your incredible talent! Watching you all become amazing fibre artists has been a very rewarding experience, and I can think of no happier way to have spent the last five months. I want to thank you all, and all my colleagues for making this a fun and awesome place to work–it isn’t easy to leave.
