Meet the Staff

Carolyn · Owner

Hello everyone! I’m Carolyn and the owner of the Twisted Ewe. Like most yarn shop owners, I started the Twisted Ewe over 10 years ago for the community of people who love and appreciated yarn and what you can create with it. Over the years I have come to understand the importance of having a creative outlet in life, and it has shown me some of the coolest people I’ve ever met through the Ewe!

My goal now is to simply grow this community. I want people—who have never experienced what it’s like to create with fiber—to understand the joy it can bring to their lives. The fiber arts is one of the most versatile mediums to express creativity. This versatility makes the fiber arts open to all ages, from children to older folks.

The Twisted Ewe is a place where anyone in the Treasure Valley can come, create, and feel inspired. We try to provide a space where people can feel empowered to try something new and feel proud of themselves! Come on in and let’s get to know each other.

Stephanie · Floor Manager 

Hi - My name is Stephanie, and this is my dog Boobu who is now a regular greeter. I manage the sales floor and oversee purchasing and merchandising for the shop.

My background is in apparel and accessories design, and I'm interested in the sustainable lifecycle of products from fiber to finished product. I enjoy finding new items that will be a good fit for the shop, learning new fiber arts skills, and being a part of the creative community here at the Ewe.

Cindy · Staff and Instructor

I'm Cindy, one of The Twisted Ewe's teachers and support staff. I have worked in the yarn business since the mid 1980’s. I'm here to help you find the fiber that's best suited for your pattern or a pattern that fits the idea you had in mind. I will also help if you are having issues with your project once you start it.

Knitting is my creative outlet, and teaching knitting is part of my creative process. I teach Learn to Knit, sock knitting on circular needles, and Private Lessons on whatever is requested. I have also lead the Knit Along's this last year. I love to find a new knitting project with a new skill to tackle. Once I've got something new down, I want to share it with others. Last year it was Brioche. This year it will be Double Knitting. So, watch out for a class or video on Intro to Double Knitting later this year.
