Arthella is the shop manager and learned to knit and crochet at age nine. She is a native Washingtonian who continued knitting and crocheting on and off along the way. Feeling led to pick up the needles, she took a class at a LYS the summer of 2008 and the rest is history – she found her passion. In 2010, the opportunity arose for her to leave “the workplace” after more than 20 years providing IT support to the Federal Government as a contractor. Shortly thereafter, she began working at a LYS and teaching knitting classes at the shop and in the community. Arthella joined fibre space™ in 2012. She has many drop spindles but finds spinning on her Hansen espinner most soothing. Arthella loves to knit toe up socks, top down seamless sweaters and enjoys learning and sharing techniques and tips.
