Get to know Llama Llama Ding Dong

1. What is your favorite part of the Chicago Yarn Crawl? 

Everything!  As crawlers ourselves, we enjoyed visiting each shop and interacting with other crawlers.  We hope to infuse everyone with the same feeling of community we felt throughout the years participating in the Chicago Yarn Crawl.

2. How long have you been in business and how did you get started?

We opened our doors on December 14, 2018.  We will be about eight months old during the Chicago Yarn Crawl.  Our love for the fiber arts began with our mother's love and appreciation for the knitting artform.  We felt a desire to continue to introduce aspiring local Fiber Artists to a craft that reminds us of her.

3. What makes your shop unique?

Our commitment to grow the Fiber Arts community in our area is part of what makes our store unique.  We continue to engage local Fiber Artists to share what is important to them and to showcase their magnificent work with others.

4. What is your favorite part of being an LYS owner? 

Our favorite part is interacting with all of the Fiber Artists that have walked through our doors.  We enjoy being involved in each individual's creative process from the start of a project to its completion.  It is especially exciting when they take the time to stop by our store to show us their finished items.  Above all, creating a truly diverse and inclusive community of Fiber Artists in our LYS, is the most rewarding aspect of being shop owners.
