Danielle is the owner of the fibre space shop and has been knitting since the age of six or so, when she completed her first project – a Cabbage Patch doll scarf.
A Pittsburgh native with a degree in international development, she moved to the DC area to find a job and quickly established a career in non profit management and fundraising. For extra cash, she decided to turn her hobby into a job and taught knitting classes in the evening at area shops.
With a heavy dose of sarcasm and a tough love style of teaching, Danielle quickly developed a following of students – busy DC professionals looking for a creative outlet.
In October 2006, she struck out on her own with Knit-a-Gogo, Inc. – offering knitting classes and events all over the DC metro area. Before she knew it, Knit-a-Gogo had grown out of control and Danielle moved to the next natural step – a full service yarn shop.
In July 2009 fibre space was born and has been rockin’ ever since. When she isn’t behind the counter with a mocha in hand and her kiddo Madeline at her side, Danielle is hanging with her hubby or lobbying for small business needs at City Hall.
