The Story Behind The Name

Hey everyone! My name is Lisa and I am the owner of Angel Wing Yarn Works. When I was about 9 years old my Aunt came to visit and she taught me how to crochet. She used to send us slippers every year for Christmas. I always thought it was really cool. Through out my life I would crochet here and there but never got very good at it. It actually wasn’t until I was 35 that I got serious about it. My mother passed away and three months later My Aunt passed away. I found crocheting to be very therapeutic. It allowed me to create something beautiful among all the sadness.

I fully submerged myself in crocheting. I joined Facebook groups, scoured Pinterest for patterns and watched you tube videos when I ran into something I didn’t know how to do. Soon I started taking small projects with me every where. People began asking me if I sold my work. I started thinking about it and looked around Etsy to see if it was a viable business. Once I decided to do it I knew I was going to need a name. I went through dozens of names and nothing seemed right. I knew I wanted to honor my Aunt who taught me this awesome skill.  Finally I came up with Angel Wing Yarn Works. I think Aunt Linda would be proud.
