About Us

Hello Fiber Friends,

My name is Babetta Gnos. I am 50 years old and lucky enough to be the mother of 5 and grandmother of 3 (as of Feb. 8th). In the fall of 2004 my eldest daughter Maya and I discovered a common thread of interest and talent that connected our family and friends that we could draw together and weave into a new opportunity for those willing to participate. We decided to open a yarn store in the neighborhood we've called home for the last 17 years, Fair Oaks. Using some creative financing, organized energy, the sacrifice of some domestic responsibility and lots of love, we did it. On Feb. 1, 2005 Babetta's Yarn and Gifts opened its doors to the public. Thank you family and friends without whose mostly willing participation, this dream could not have been realized.

Our intention is to offer friendly helpful service coupled with a supply of products tailored to the needs of our new and expanding group of fiber friends. Many thanks to those of you who have already found us and made our first few days in business a success.
