It all began with a local yarn store.

Nearly two decades ago, while raising 3 kids and running another business with her husband, Shelley Brander started an improbable “side hustle” and opened Loops, a modern yarn store in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Ever since she learned to knit at age 16, Shelley was hooked – but lonely. She longed for like-minded fiber friends looking for softer yarns, modern projects and more authentic connection.

Today, Loops has become Knit Stars, a 6,000+ sq ft creative emporium that’s at the forefront of the modern maker movement. We’re on a mission to Knit the World Together.™
