How it Started
It all began with a local yarn store.
Nearly two decades ago, while raising 3 kids and running a branding and production business, Shelley Brander started an improbable “side hustle." She 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, an e-learning, curation and connection company that’s at the forefront of the modern maker movement.
We’d love for you to join our mission to Knit the World Together.™
