A Wonderful Yarn provides preemie parents with alternative, safe, and attractive options they can use to create and capture great memories, practice much needed self-care, and be able to best care for their preemie babies.
Hello! I am so grateful and excited you have stopped by!
In the dictionary, "Yarn" can refer either to the strands used in weaving and knitting to form cloth, or to a narrative of adventures!
I grew up in the heartland making and receiving crochet and other hand-crafted items. They are part of nearly every special occasion I can remember. Each one of them connects me to my family, faith, and friends, and I cherish those connections to this day. That is where A Wonderful Yarn Started. Hair Clips that tell the story of a favorite pet or passion or that add to the special story of a holiday or event in your life. Taking control of creating those memories through design is still part of my mission.
However, I realized that wasn't enough. I wanted help those that came after my husband and me in the preemie experience. We spent 110 days in the NICU with micropreemie twin girls. From the first day in the NICU to finally being home and beyond, there are so many things that are just different than a full term pregnancy, and so many things you feel you miss out on. Those feelings can be a great weight to bear.
The other half of my mission has become restoring a sense of normalcy and control to the yarn that is the preemie parents' journey. Having a preemie is the definition of a narrative of adventures
No matter what your story is, however, I hope you will allow me to be there to help you craft it, capture it, and remember it always!
I'd love to hear about some of the great memories that are already part of your story or are looking forward to in the future. Stop by my Facebook page, say "hi", and stay connected by hitting the "Like" button!
