Seller Spotlight

Welcome to Alanah and Emily, two sisters the co-run a wonderful Etsy shop called YarnPlusYarn! They remind me of my sister and I, and how we would stay up all hours of the night knitting together. :)

"A little over a year ago, my sister Emily and I were on a camping trip. We had one of those nights where you dream about the future. I threw out the idea of starting our own Etsy shop, with knitted and crocheted goods. She went with it, saying different things we could do and how it would be so great! I remember turning to her and asking "Why not? Let's do it!" Since then, we have become business partners. It is such a great experience to have a business with my sister, it has brought us even closer than we already were.

YarnPlusYarn is all about making things that are unique, fashionable, and wearable. We never add any items that we would not wear ourselves. We love to use many different colors and designs because it is so great to have variety in one's wardrobe. Running an Etsy store has been a huge challenge, but it is so rewarding to be a part of an uplifting community. I feel blessed."


Here are a few of their beautiful products!

Thick Three Color Cowl

Oh, Sore Bones. And new Items!

So, I spent most of my day yesterday building. That's right, I'm a powertool gal. I was helping out a local Mesa theatre company who was just getting up on their feet after their theatre building got shut down. They recently started back up with a show in the corner of a store, with no fancy lights, microphones, or stage! And it was good! So, anyway, for their next show, they needed a stage and a set. My sister and I went down to the store with some friends who work with the threatre company and we started to build them a stage. It was long and hard, but totally worth it. The show will be great!

New items?!? Yes indeed! I started a new line of satin flowers and bobby pins. I love how they shimmer and shine. My autumn fabric palette consists of gold, teal, deep purple, silvery purple, and brown. I don't have them all up on Etsy yet, but I do have a few!

And a headband!

Let me know what you think!
