HI, I'M LAUREN

I’m the owner of Love & Stitches. I have been crocheting since I was a little girl. It wasn’t until I went away to Potsdam for college when I started to crochet regularly and even design patterns. Crochet has been a wonderful stress reliever for me. My schedule was always jam packed with education, history, and music courses. So crochet was a welcome break, but I could still feel productive. During this time I started another business, Lo.Ve Originals. With this business I go to local craft shows and sell my finished crochet products.

Fast forward to grad school. I stayed home while completing my masters degree in literacy. I stayed busy with my homework, craft shows with Lo.Ve Originals, and working as a substitute teacher at a local school district. After 4 long years of subbing and completing my degree, I still did not have a full time position. It’s extremely frustrating to be good at what you love to do and not get a chance to show it.

I truly enjoy being a teacher. I love teaching history and helping students learn to read and write. Right now it is tough to get a teaching position in my subject area. So I have now turned to my other passion – yarn! Why not open a yarn store? Why not share my love of yarn crafts? I may be young, but I have a real passion for my craft and I would love to share it with my community.

**Update – I have a full time teaching position as a high school history teacher. This is why my hours are nights and Saturdays.

I do not have the talent to use your yarns. My best friend loves your shop. You make giving a gift certificate so easy, I love that about you.

Nice little shop. Small selection, but actually had fiber yarns rather than all acrylic or nylon! Tons of needles and hooks there too. The woman who I believe owns and runs it was super polite and kind. Love the locally made yarn she sells from a maker in syracuse, excellent quality. They even have a little loyalty program for rewards. I do believe they also offer classes in knitting and crocheting.

Daina and Danielle's prices are extremely fair. We found a few fun things and talking with Daina is nice! I wasn't aware the stores name was Live & Stitches? I was called it Treasures Lost and Found. Very fun!
