Name: Sarah Teigler
Business: One Sly Fox
I’ve been part of the fiber community in Pittsburgh for nearly 9 years and I’ve been at yarn in some way or another since I was about 3 thanks to my grandmothers. One thing they taught me over and over is that something functional can be nice to look at, that something pretty can have a an actual physical use. I’ve grow up with this idea rattling around in my head and I apply it as often as I can. When I started complaining about the choices in store-bought stitch markers and a friend told me “well, make something better” I ran with it. It started as just playing with beads and has evolved to the point where I am rather proud to present my fandom stitch markers, as well as a number of other tools and hand spun art yarns. Knitting/crocheting/fiber work makes you happy, why shouldn’t all you tools?
A few random facts:
*I am, quite obviously, a fox addict.
*My friends were convinced for ages I was punking them with my sock knitting speed (1 week for a pair!)
*I have shamelessly used my spinning wheel to “hypnotize” kids left nearby at shows to give their parents a break.
*Proud Gryffindor and Potterhead.
*I am a sock knitting addict!
