Yarn Affair President launches knitting blog

Aug '05
Jennifer S Marshall, President of Yarn Affair, a new organization focused on serving knitters and crocheters across the United States, has launched a personal knitting blog. Crocheters and knitters can view and contribute to the new blog at the http://yarnaffair.blogspot.com Internet address.

Jennifer is a career librarian and veteran knitter. She co-founded Yarn Affair with her brother, an experienced consumer products distribution executive. The two recognized that knitters and crocheters that want to earn income through knitting and crocheting have limited choices. The best understood choice is to open a yarn store, a proposition that entails significant upfront costs.

To create a better option, the company conducted extensive interviews with knitters and crocheters to determine their opinions on everything from knitting patterns to skein winders, from crochet thread to circular knitting needle kits.

Earlier this month, Yarn Affair set October 1, 2005 as the date it will reveal its business opportunity to subscribers on its mailing list. Knitters and crocheters can get on Yarn Affair's mailing list by visiting the www.yarnaffair.com Internet address. The company is encouraging knitters and crocheters from across the United States to sign up, particularly those who want to lead knitting projects, crochet classes, knitting courses or crochet groups.

Yarn Affair is a new organization focused on serving knitters and crochetersacross the United States. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Yarn Affair was co-founded by a career librarian and veteran knitter and her brother, an experienced consumer products distribution executive. The company will share details of its business opportunity with its mailing list subscribers on October 1, 2005. Knitters and crocheters can sign up by visiting the www.yarnaffair.com.
