Hi there! We're Cortni and Wes. The owners & dyers behind Rita Mae Yarns.
We wanted to take a moment to say hi & also meet others in our yarn community.
We started this business together in February of 2017, to inspire other fiber artists to make beautiful things with our bright, fun and unique colors.
The biggest question we usually get is "why did you choose the name 'Rita Mae Yarns' for your business?" And our answer is near and dear to us. Rita Mae was Cortni's Grandmother, she passed away in 2014 due to stage 4 bladder cancer. She was an avid fiber artist and loved spread her creativity with others and support fellow artists. We wanted to create this business in memory of her, and bring a new touch to the old craft of the fiber arts.
Here are 5 fun facts about us:
1. We love to sing! Wes has been playing guitar for over 10 years, and we met in chorus class in high school.2. We love our fur-babies - Lucy (6 yr old Pughuahua mix), Daisy (7 yr old Min Pin/Chihuahua Mix), and Kolbi (4 yr old white/grey cat).
3. We're getting married in May 2019
4. Cortni was an only child until 2013; when her little sister was born! Madelyn was a surprise to all of us. We are 18.5 years apart.
5. Wes is the first out of his family to go for his Bachelor's degree. He is now pursuing his Masters in Organizational Leadership.
