Yarn of Eden has been owned and operated by Kathleen Gedeon since May 2013. She is passionate about fiber arts and loves to share her passion with her customers. Kathleen had a long career as a flight attendant before she retired. So she has lots of experiencekeeping her customers happy and satisfied. She works very hard to make sure you feel at home and welcomed in her shop. If you need help with a project or need ideas on where to start she will gladly offer her advice and years of experience.
Maureen takes care of the shop on Mondays. She has been a Yarn of Eden customer since we first opened and now a member of our staff. She has been crocheting and knitting for 3 years, She is happy to use her knowledge of yarn and its craft to help you make the perfect selection for your project.
Patricia joined our staff last year when we moved to our larger location. She is caretaker of the shop on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Patricia learned to play with yarn at 10 years old when her grandmother taught her both knitting and crocheting in Spanish. Over the years she learned to translate all that into a sock knitting passion. You will find her participating every year in Sock Madness and Tour de Sock on Ravelry. Stop in and she will gladly share the wonders of Ravelry with you.
Karen cares for the shop on Fridays when she is not busy with her new grandson! Her years of knitting expertise is a valuable resource and we are very happy to have her. She and her lifelong friend Cheryl started meeting at Yarn of Eden for knit time together and now I won't let either of them leave. Many of our shop samples were knit by Karen.
We have a large selection of free patterns and we offer a variety of yarns to fit every budget, and style as well as every crochet hook and needle set available to us. We have a wool free section in our store for those who are allergic or are seeking alternatives to wool yarns.

Meet our teachers
Cassandra Jensen started crocheting when she was pregnant with her first child. After learning how to make baby booties from her Pastor’s wife, she made a pink and white baby blanket and ended up having a boy. That was 27 years ago! She continued making items for friends and family through the years. About 4 years ago she started selling items at bazaar’s and boutiques.
Cassandra’s items have included; afghans, hats, scarves, clothing (baby and adult), doilies, Amigurimi, socks…to even include creations of her own; from a road-kill squirrel to a Cyclops eye doctor.
Cassandra says, “Crochet (fiber art) is an addiction. I usually have at least four projects going at once. I won’t tell you about my unfinished pile! It thrills me to help others become addicts, too!”
