Tell us about your team or would you like to highlight someone special?
We are a two person team – Deb Kerr & Kyle Anderson. Deb grew up in New York State and Kyle grew up in St Cloud. We met while teaching in State College, PA. Kyle – 7th Grade English, Deb – Math and instructional technology. We moved to Alexandria in June 2015 and opened the store July 8, 2015. It’s our retirement project.
We offer our classes by request. We teach beading, silver-smithing, crochet, knitting, wine-making, copper enameling, metal stamping, acrylic pour painting, …. People tell us what they’d like to learn and we create a class for them.
One of our most popular samples is the Make a Million Shawl knit from a gradient set and a 100g skein of Malabrigo Sock. People ask to buy it regularly. We also have an awesome beaded felt hat in the window that is not for sale – it was beaded by a Native American named Tawney Cole. Deb won it in a raffle and we just love it. So does everyone passing by.
