Connecting with Sati

When I began my quest of finding Participating Local Yarn Shops, I scoured Facebook Groups and the Internet for local yarn shops that carry Malabrigo Sock or Arroyo but only managed to have 2 yarn shops participate. Sati responded to the call I made on Save the Local Yarn Shops (a Facebook group) and after going back and forth with her, we got connected! I was honestly not expecting to find a willing LYS Owner who hasn’t even met or known me (and from Seneca, SC no less). I've never been to South Carolina (or know anyone from SC), but after a few chats with Sati, I am very pleased to tell you that NOW I do know someone from South Carolina and am even more than happy to introduce her to you!

And that's the beauty of sharing the same love for yarn and fiber arts. You'll never know who you'll make connections with, or who will come to join your cause, and where in the world they'll come from. With all that said, let's get to know Sati and her shop Rows and Roses.


Getting to Know Sati

Sati -- Well, I've been in business for 10 years in February. I got interested in fiber arts because I wanted to be able to make woolies for my baby girl. We were cloth diapering and I always thought the longies and shorties and skirties were so cute! Nobody introduced me to it, really. I'm self-taught, mostly through books and trial and error. I hung out on Hyena Cart back then (small, handmade market place) and used to stalk Mosaic Moon, Lollytree, Pianissimo, and Tessa Ann for their stockings. That was back when cloth diapering had a real community and it was so much fun. What started as just me learning to crochet so I could make wool diaper covers for my baby, turned into an all-out business before I knew it. Honestly, it was an accident! I never set out to start a business.

I knit, crochet, spin, dye, weave, write patterns, and teach classes, and own a little yarn shop in downtown Seneca, SC. I've written patterns for WeCrochet, Interweave Crochet, and Expression Fiber Arts. Even though I do all of the "yarny" things, my passion is crochet in all forms. On top of owning and running Rows & Roses, I also homeschool my two kids still living at home. We've homeschooled from the very beginning, and it's so rewarding!
