Behind the Scenes

The {Among Friends} yarn and fiber club grew out of a friendship between Lorajean Kelley of Knitted Wit and Brooke Sinnes of Sincere Sheep. Brooke and Lorajean first met at Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival in Canby, Oregon when Lorajean’s eldest son, Eli, was just a baby and Brooke was pregnant with her son, Joaquin. Sensing that they were kindred spirits from their first interaction, the ladies struck up a friendship that has only grown deeper over time.

Strong believers in the concept that “a rising tide lifts all boats,” Brooke and Lorajean created {Among Friends} as a way to work with and support the businesses of all the wonderful designers, dyers, and creative people they’ve met over the years.

While each of the {Among Friends} clubs is organized around different themes, the constant thread that ties them together is working with friends. So come and join us and knit {Among Friends}!
