About Us

Welcome!  I'm Sue, and I'm so glad you're here!  

Do you love knitting, yarn, and everything fiber-related?  Me too!  So much so, that I've started Great Yarn Company not once but twice!

The first time, we were living in New Orleans, my beloved hometown, and life was good...  right up until August 2005, when 80% of New Orleans flooded.

Thankfully, we evacuated before the flood, so our family was safe, but our home was filled with several feet of water for weeks, and I lost my entire yarn inventory.  Don't even ask me about the yuckiness factor...

We decided to make a fresh start in Texas.  Sunny climate, Tex-Mex food, and lots of open spaces!  Oh, and knitters?  They're all over the place in Texas!

We've been very happy here (um, did I mention Tex-Mex food?), but after two years, I still missed my yarn shop.  So I took a deep breath and restarted Great Yarn Company... from scratch.

I hope you'll enjoy shopping with us.  If you have any questions, please let me know!

Happy Knitting!  (Sue's signature)
