Our Team

We know we could not operate this business without a lot of help; it's truly a team effort to keep the shop functioning and we are truly grateful for these amazing women.

 

Ashley
Ashley learned to knit during Becky's first knitting class ten years ago! As a newcomer to Billings coming from Mississippi, knitting seemed like a good thing to learn in this cold Northern place. An avid reader with sharp wit and genuine Southern Charm, we've always loved calling Ashley our friend. As a part of the Yarn Bar team, her experience with a digital marketing business is especially helpful in this era of small business ownership.
Becky
Becky brings years of common sense teaching experience to our team. She and her husband started the Billings Gymnastics School in 1985 and taught & coached a couple of generations of kids. She's a great sounding board for the backend side of business ownership for us, and a fabulous teacher of knitting to all; she's been teaching Beginning Knitting in the community for 15 years. Becky learned to knit by making her baby daughter a sweater 37 years ago. She perfected the art of bleacher & travel knitting at gymnastics meets and watching her son play football all the way through college at Montana State University.
MEREDITH
Meredith, our newest yarn barista, enjoys small, simple projects that move quickly on and off her needles. You may notice her favorite pinks or grays incorporated into hats, cowls or shawls. Meredith loves working with wool and often holds another fiber alongside it for extra softness. She is not afraid of a little “un-knitting” or “tinking” to fix a problem and views this as extra practice! Meredith learned to knit when she volunteered in the after school knitting club organized by Sue at their kids' elementary school. We know you'll love her helpful & positive encouragement as much as we do.
Sara
Sara's knitting started in 2001 when pregnant with Second Baby. Her favorite thing to knit is socks! She joined our team in February, shortly before Covid 19 sent us into quarantines. You'll find her very eager to help and we are thrilled with her enthusiasm for learning, flexibility with scheduling, and quiet friendliness for all.
CONNIE
Most of Connie's career was spent working as an RN. She's an avid reader, Griz fan, grandkid sports cheerleader, and enjoys British and Australian tv dramas. Connie grew up in Butte ("Don't mess with a Butte Girl.") and we love her story about learning to knit: "When I was 10 years old my friend Carol and I were allowed to take the bus from the 'flats' in Butte and go all the way to Hennessy's Department Store in Uptown Butte - quite an adventure for two 10 year old girls in the 1960's. Our teacher, Joan, was a very sweet English lady who gave the knitting classes. Classes were held in the mezzanine, where both the yarn AND book departments were at Hennessey's. We would knit until noon and then we went to Gamers to have lunch. It was a great place with wonderful food & baked goodies. When it came time to pay you took your tab and money to the till and rang it up yourself; it's still that way today. After lunch we would wander around uptown and go in and out of Five & Dime stores and various dress shops. Around 3:30 it was time to hop on the bus and head home. We were always excited for the next week's lesson."
