Once upon a time...
This is how it all started: I bought one skein of the most beautiful intense pink and orange yarn. Months later, when I decided to create something with it, I realized that one skein was not enough. I set out to find more, but it was gone.
With the baby bunny off to college and lots of time on my hands I decided to try and duplicate my beautiful yarn. And I did! Suddenly, my empty nest was full of yarn! I was hooked. The perfect mix of art and science! I started out with natural dyes and I loved the soft colors, but wanted more. With the full palette of dyes in front of me, I was in heaven.
Raised right here in Clearwater, FL, I work as a Quality Project Manager for a health plan during the day, but the yarn is always on my mind.
When I meet people one of the first things they ask is, "Where did you come up with the name Fat Bunny Yarn?" Well, someone gave me the nickname Bunny years ago and when I was searching for a name and logo, a friend of mine did this sketch of this fat little bunny and it felt just right.
Hope you feel at home here on the website. You can also follow Fat Bunny Yarn on Instagram and we have a Facebook page. This is our shop. You'll see lots on Instagram: yarn, inspirations and where our thoughts are.
I love to meet fiber friends and hope to see you at a yarn shop or knit night or a fiber event. My first name is Maria, even though many people introduce me as Fat Bunny, lol.
