Yarn Hollow began in 2005, the result of a kitchen sink epiphany. Rita Petteys began dyeing yarn in her garage in Grandville, MI and selling it at the Fulton Street Farmer’s Market. City Knitting was the first wholesale account, followed by several others over the years. Yarn Hollow has yarn in over 25 shops throughout the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Southern United States and Canada. In addition to a yarn presence at select yarn shops, Rita has been selling at regional fiber festivals since 2006.
In May 2010, Yarn Hollow moved from Rita’s garage/basement/dining room/computer room/playroom (home businesses have a way of taking over!) into an 1100 square foot facility at 3041 Broadway SW in Grandville, MI.
