IDoYarn

Team Leader, Shop Owner, Crocheter, Knitter, Swedish Weaver, are all terms we can use to describe Nikki Williams, whose Shop, IDoYarn, http://www.etsy.com/shop/IDoYarn, consists of many various hand crafted items. According to Nikki, “IDoYarn was created to share my love of yarn with others.”

As one of “The GoldenThreads Team” Leader’s, we are all familiar with Nikki and her many games which she starts on our Discussion Threads; as well as her contribution to our Team. I don’t know how many of you have noticed her recent Shop sign, “Store Closing on July 27th”. Unfortunately her presence as a Team Member and a Seller on Etsy will be missed. Those of you who join in our Chat Thread are familiar with the debilitating migraines Nikki has been suffering from lately. I am sure her decision to leave our Team and Etsy was a difficult one, but it comes at a time when she feels she needs to devote time to herself, and get the rest she needs.

As one who also crochets, I do know how relaxing crocheting can be; so I am sure Nikki will be spending her time crocheting those adorable little dresses and shoes we love so much in her Shop. It seems her craft has been a part of her life since she was about 8 years of age, when she asked her Grandmother, who would make such beautiful items, to teach her the art of crocheting. From that moment, in Nikki’s words, “she instantly fell in love with the craft.”.

Since Nikki is closing her Store next week, she is currently offering select items up to 50% off. Browsing through her shop, you will find a unique array of crocheted items ranging from baby clothes; bag; Holiday dishcloths; potholders; as well as scarfs, fingerless gloves, and hats.

Nikki has been crafting and stitching her whole life. She also enjoys doing embroidery, Swedish weaving, counted cross stitch, scrapbooking and sewing to name a few. “When just a young girl my mom taught my sisters and I how to do simple embroidery. I remember doing samplers with lots of little x’s and being so proud of my accomplishments”.

Married to her “best friend” for 24 years, and raising two children, Nikki began to explore her love to working with yarns. Teaching herself to knit, she also loves embroidering, cross-stitch, and Swedish weaving.

Although you will be greatly missed, myself, and as well as our Captain, MissE, and our other Leaders, Sassy and Tricia, and the many great Members of our GoldenThreads Team wish you the best, and hope the time at home resting will help your healing. Hopefully you will stop by our Chat thread now and then to update us on your progress, and maybe one day be back selling here on Etsy!
