Want to know about Yarnoholics?

Hi, there. I'm new to blogging, so ... bear with me!

Here's the long and short of it.

My name is Kathleen Van Horn. I was originally the pattern editor for another company who was importing these gorgeous yarns from Japan. Years after that company closed, I was getting requests for these yarns (as my contact info was on the backs of the published patterns). So I worked with Diakeito to bring the yarns back into the U.S. 

Although, originally, I was distributing the yarns to local yarn shops, they price point was making it out of reach for most of us (me included!)  I wanted more knitters, crocheters and weavers to experience the wonderful hand, feel and colors of these unusual and desirable yarns. This is why I began selling direct to the consumer and not the local stores.

I am a one-woman-show, so please bear with me as I add more product - yarns, patterns and even tools - to my website. And don't ever hesitate to contact me.
