Hi, I'm Sue, and I'm so glad you're here!  Do you love knitting, yarn, and everything fiber-related?  Me too!  So much, in fact, 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 plenty of room to spread out -- what's not to love!  Texans are so friendly, they made us feel right at home.  And knitters?  They're all over the place in Texas!  Who knew?!

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

I'm very happy to be back, and hope you enjoy shopping with us.  If you have any questions, please let me know!

Happy Knitting!  (Sue's signature)
