What is authentic expression? I believe it is the truest expression to the world of who we really are, deep inside. Not the day-to-day definitions such as doctor, parent, computer programmer, spouse, etc., but the spirit that we find if we look quietly into our own hearts. It was beautifully explained in one of my favorite movies, "The Legend of Bagger Vance." Bagger (the caddy) says "Inside each and every one of us is one authentic swing ... something we were born with ... something that can't be taught ... it has to be remembered ..." There is something magical about letting exquisite fibers run through our fingers that helps us do that "remembering." It puts us back in touch with our innate creative spirit that so often has been lost in the busy-ness of today's society. It provides time in our lives where we do sit quietly and reconnect with our Selves.
At So Much Yarn, our mission is to create a joyous atmosphere which nurtures your most authentic expression. From the moment you walk in the door, you will feel welcome and at home. Whether your creative spirit already flows freely, or whether it needs to be coaxed out of hiding, we are excited to help you through excellent, friendly service and through an extensive array of classes and workshops. I like to say that knitting, like life, is a "continuing ed sport" and So Much Yarn will be a place where all of us ... myself, our staff, and all of you fabulous customers and friends, can learn and grow together!
