Fiberside Chats: Marie Greene October 8, 2023
The Joy of Yarn with Marie Greene
There’s often a big difference between the yarn we buy and the yarn we use – and some of us have an unruly stash to show for it. Raise your hand if:
- You’ve ever felt exasperated and uninspired by your yarn stash (same!)
- You don’t believe in yarn diets (ew, right?)
- You have tons of yarn already, but none of it is the right yarn for your project (been there)
- You’ve tried a zillion ways to get your yarn (and crafts!) organized, but nothing seems to work (the struggle is real)
Good news, you’re not alone! Join our special guest, best-selling author and designer, Marie Greene from Olive Knits, as she shares game-changing secrets from her newest book, The Joy of Yarn. She’ll share tips for mindfully investing in your “fiber real estate” and transforming a messy, overwhelming stash, into a lovingly curated “home” yarn shop that will inspire you. Say goodbye to yarn diets and say hello to The Joy of Yarn!
Marie has worked with thousands of knitters from around the world to help them make sense of how they buy, store, and use the yarn they love. Learn how to identify how well your stash is working for you so you’ll have just what you need for those emergency Friday night cast-ons. Best of all, Marie knows the joy of “new yarn” and why the most important part of having a stash is knowing how to curate it. With her candid, funny, and relatable style, she’ll leave you feeling encouraged and inspired.
Marie Greene is an internationally known designer, author and knitting teacher.
