BETH BOBBITT DESIGNS AND BETH'S STORY
"A life threatening illness in my 30’s left me with some lasting physical challenges. I had to find new ways to relate to the world around me. It was sudden and unexpected and I was required to walk through the fire of transformation. A pivotal point of healing was a trip to the beach with my family. For the first time since my illness I was able walk the beach with my children. We walked, slowly, and collected sea glass. It was so simple and so monumental. I wanted to create something special with the glass we collected. I found the courage to attend a smithing class. It gave light to a part of me I never knew existed. Like my designs, I have more character, depth, and color because of my transformational experiences. I continue to walk through the fire, to forge something new and to support my burning desire to know myself."

From Apple Fiber Studio:
"Who We Are: A former interior designer, Andrea Evans and her husband Andrew opened Apple Yarns in 2007 followed by appleyarns.com in 2010. From their experience as local yarn store owners (LYSO’s) they have learned what works for the consumer and they use their experience to bring yarn to market that the customer will love and want to knit and crochet with again and again.
Andrea started dyeing yarns in 2007 with her kids as a fun family activity: Apple Fiber Studio grew out of these experiences. Colorways are produced by Andrea and her daughter Amy and are inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. "
“Creativity is inventing, experiencing, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.”
