Meet the Twisted Staff

Chadwick · Twisted General Manager

Hello Fellow Fiber Enthusiasts! I’m Chadwick, the Twisted Ewe’s General Manager! I operate mainly behind the scenes to make sure the shop and online store are both running smoothly. I’ve been with the Twisted Ewe since December 2017. Before the Ewe, I had a career as a corporate trainer, manager of customer service departments for an online retailer, and I worked in shipping for a local manufacturer. At the Twisted Ewe, I am blessed to have an exceptional team of employees, who bring their ‘A’ game each and every day! 

I love knitting! I started this new passion when I came onboard with the Ewe. One of these days, I will also learn crochet! I enjoy living in the Treasure Valley with all of its many offerings. The great outdoors, the downtown scene, and other communities that each bring a richness to the tapestry that is our great state of Idaho! Stop in and say hello! 

 

Kalli · Website Coordinator, Receiver, and Instructor

Hello! My name is Kalli. I am the Twisted Ewe’s Website Coordinator and Receiver. I am also part of our floor staff and teach private lessons on the side. I have lived in the Treasure Valley all my life, and have been with the Twisted Ewe since 2016. With over 15 years of crochet experience and 5 years of knitting, I love to go on adventures through my stitching, all from the comfort of my home! I am passionate about introducing new people to the wonderful world of the fiber arts, and hope that everyone loves them as much as I do. 
As the Website Coordinator, I keep our online shop updated and looking fresh with new photos and descriptions of our beautiful yarns and products. That way people can continue to shop, from the comfort of THEIR own homes. I strive to help our customers and try to answer any and all questions and problems that come my way!

Chandra · Events Coordinator and Purchaser

Hello, my name is Chandra, and I am the Events Coordinator and Purchaser for the Twisted Ewe. I love working with wool in many ways. I enjoy the sense of peace that knitting, crocheting, and wool-on-wool appliqué provides. It helps me de-stress, and I get to make beautiful gifts or items for myself. I love the crafting community and how we share the love of crafting, yet we are all so very different in what we create. I love to learn new techniques in all categories. Teaching someone new is exciting because I hope they love it as much as I do.
I have a small farm with 5 horses, 3 goats, 3 dogs, and barn cats. There is always something happening in my world. This is Daphne above, and she is my heart horse. We had just accomplished a huge goal in this photo. I was so proud of us. 

Natalia · Social Media Coordinator and Meme Curator

I'm Natalia, the Twisted Ewe's social media coordinator and curator of the fiber arts memes on our Facebook page! I also teach knitting and felting at the shop. As a long-time resident of Boise and a BSU student, I'm interested in making the fiber arts more accessible for all ages and genders to benefit from. I adore the fiber arts community, whether that's chatting in-person at the shop or laughing about a yarn joke in a digital space.
As an instructor, I specialize in hat knitting and felted soap making, with a growing knowledge of needle felting, weaving, spinning, and dying. I teach all-ages and love working with children! Additionally, I take pride in being able to mend a knitted sweater ;) 

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.
