Lisa took a trip downtown to visit Rae Brenne who owns Stix & Stones which is a local yarn store that also offers workshops throughout the week.

Rae talked about how she originally got involved with knitting and decided to open up her store and her response to the idea that knitting is a dying art. Lisa also got the chance to talk to a few other people who were attending “Stitch and Craft Night”.

  • How knitting is special to Lisa 2:30
