Vickie Spain

Our Staff:
Kendra Feltych has been knitting for over 60 years, enjoys the process of knitting and the camaraderie and fellowship of knitting with others.    Bambi Tracy is a wonderful knitter of 12 years and has years of fiber arts retail experience.  She's great at helping you find that just-right project and picking out great colors for you!  Finally, I am  Vickie Spain.  I have been knitting for over 35 years including working in a couple of our local yarn shops throughout the years.  Before opening Castaway Yarns I taught junior high Mathematics and Science, and then Math Education at MU.  I love helping my customers decide what they would like to knit, what yarn will be a perfect fit for their projects, how to knit, and assisting when knitting problems arise.  WE ALL look forward to seeing you in the shop and helping you with your projects!
