Dyeing yarn is a skill that not everyone has. Chandi and her husband are a dynamic team that have mastered the skill of not only dyeing yarn but running a successful business. Today on the Yarn Thing podcast we will chat with Chandi about her yarn dyeing business as well as her book about selling your hand-made items online.
About Expression Fiber Arts:
The story of Expression Fiber Arts started in 2011. Chandi was newly divorced and living with her brother and sister-in-law in North Pole, Alaska.
Needing to start her life over and find direction and clarity she asked herself this question:
“What would you do with your life if money were no object?”
And clear as a bell, in an instant, the answer was in her mind. I want to own a hand-dyed yarn company. That was all it took. She trusted that instinct and began the process.
When the time came that she realized she was making more in the yarn business than at her day job, she decided it was time to quit the job and jump full force into the yarn business.
She combined her love of knitting, crocheting, spinning yarn, weaving and dyeing, with my passion for business. Her husband, Tim, was able to quit his job and work full time on the business as well, making it a family affair.
The Expression Fiber Arts Mission:
Simply put, they strive to Inspire Joy.
Taking inspiration from the world around us and turning that into yarn colorways and blends for you, in the hopes that it brings more joy, more excitement, more color, more self-expression and more creativity into your life.
Chandi and her husband Tim are also passionate about giving back to the world and donated tens of thousands of dollars to charities like Pencils for Promise, Kiva.org, World Wildlife Fund and various disaster-relief funds. They truly hope to leave the world a better place than they found it, and choose to use yarn as their medium!
