About

 

A Flyin’ Skein is a yarn shop in Seward, AK owned by Cindy Clark. Affectionately known as “The Yarn Lady” in her hometown of Seward, Cindy Clark enjoys building relationships with folks who visit her store, which she opened in August 2007. Cindy is passionate about teaching and encouraging others to discover hidden skills. Her talent began at age 9 when she learned to crochet. At 14, she taught herself to knit. In the years that followed, Cindy added to her repertoire: hairpin lace, broomstick lace, macrame’, counted cross stitch, quilting and spinning. She continues to build her talents in Tunisian crochet, Brioche knitting, Fair Isle knitting, tatting, weaving and having acquired a Circular Sock Knitting machine, is working to master it. Her background as an electro-mechanical engineering technician equips her with an ability to see knitting 3-dimensionally. But, most importantly, Cindy finds true blessings in the kinship with fellow crafters.

We had a lovely group of Australians from the cruise ship visit the store on Friday.

Had some very nice chats with them.

Wishing you good weather, safe travels and fun!
