The short story of how Slipped Stitch Studios came to be, started out with Laura Lundy needing a paycheck and childcare. After trying to get back into the business world at the bleakest point of the recession, a possibility was born from her love of all things fiber. It turns out being laid off while on maternity leave was a blessing in disguise.
But really, it had all started much earlier, in 2006, she had learned how to create wondrous things from 2 sticks and a piece of string. Being a first generation knitter in her family, her trips to the local Knitting meet-up became a magical time where ideas and thoughts about yarn, and stitches were welcome and even encouraged! This little enjoyment turned obsession, and had her thinking about her craft all the time. As the years passed she made lasting friendships and had many a yarn crawl. In her travels, she came to look forward to finding unique notions and supplies for her collection. Bags, measuring tapes, stitch markers, few and far between were her very unique findings. Little did she know her passion for the hunt would later feed into the most important decision of her life.
February 2008 gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Harper Jean, and the realization that a 50hr a week, high stress job would not be as appropriate anymore. Someone was listening, and as sometimes is the case, wishes and prayers have a funny way of being answered. While as many of us know, unemployment is a confidence buster. But by the end of the year, when there was little hope left, cheered on by her friends and family, and encouraged by the ease at which an Etsy shop was created- Slipped Stitch Studios was born!
Update: August 2016 almost 8 years in.
