Join Marly as she talks with Lindsey Martin, the co-founder of Erin Lane Bags, about how she learned to knit and how that lead to her wildly successful company.
Soon after learning to knit from her Aunt, Lindsey got tired of loosing needles (as we all do) and couldn’t find any organizers she liked. She asked her Mom (also a crafter) if she would make her one and the KnitPack was born. The same thing happened with project bags leading Lindsey and her Mom to realize they could make a business. Listen to the show to hear the rest of this inspirational story!
New for next year you can join the Erin Lane Bag Club! Lindsey has reopened sign-up through December 7th! Get in now while you can!
