I am always so amazed at the well curated selection of yarns, fibers and classes Shelli works so hard to provide all us fiber enthusiasts.

Fiber folk 1: I first met Andrea via Instagram and was amazed by her beautiful designs, sweet smile and genuine approach to making and sharing her knowledge. After getting to know her a bit more I realized what an inspiration she is to the fiber community and I know so many of you will resonate with her story. You can find Andrea on Ravelry at Dreareneeknits and on Instagram @dreareneeknits.

Man on the Street: For this week’s “Man on the Street” I’d actually love your input on what to ask the Man on the Street team for future episodes. Visit the Woolful Ravelry group and let me know what kinds of questions you’d like to hear the team answer.

Fiber folk 2: Our next guest, Shelli is a mother and grandmother, landscaper, designer, maker, vintage enthusiast and owner of one of my favorite yarn shops, Knitterly in Petaluma. Shelli’s passion for local farm yarns is what initially sparked my interest and was reinforced by her dedication to teaching and sharing through her wonderful shop and her love of knitting. You can find Shelli at knitterly.net and on Instagram @knitterlypetaluma.
