The toughest thing was uncertainty – giving up any kind of stability, regular paycheck, health insurance, etc.
When you start your own business you dream big but you don't really know if that dream will ever become a reality. It has been a very long and rough road for us – it took us ten years to get where we are today. We took many wrong turns along the way but it has been a great learning experience.
Toughest challenge is being relevant and current and always being ahead of the curve. Also staying true to yourself no matter what.
Developing the DIY Kits. Our kits are unique because they are very beginner friendly and take up very little time to complete a project.
It took us about three years to develop.
Because the yarn is so giant we can't use traditional yarn spinning equipment and what we use is very specialized and the process itself is very close to hand spun.
Creative freedom and sharing our experiences with customers is the best part.
Thanks Anna & Waejong ! Next week they will share some local insight about life in New York and Massachusetts.
