I operate Turtlepurl out of my home in rural New Brunswick, Canada (Close to the famous Bay of Fundy). I started knitting while I was learning to cope with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, as I was in the military at the time. Knitting was a huge part of my transition from military life, and as I began to delve into different aspects of fiber arts, I started dyeing. I've always had a knack for colour and colour combos, so I took to it quickly and before I knew it, I was swapping with other fiber artists, and then opened my own store. I've been dyeing yarn and fiber since 2007 and I now work full-time with Turtlepurl and have staff to help!
We don't have a brick and mortar shop, though I do open the studio once a week, on Saturdays, to the public. We do wholesale our yarns to a number of stores throughout Canada and the US.
