About Designer Yarn
@ great prices
Sherri Anderson, has been an avid knitter since the 80's.
After 20 years of experience in Graphic and Web Design for a global company, with the
last years working from Portland for the corporate office in the World Trade Center,
September 11, 2001 forced a change in careers. Remembering her manager/friend
who died that day, Kathryn Lee, who was a high-powered, extremely hard working,
intelligent woman, deeply touched Sherri when she had mentioned opening a yarn store
some day. Kathryn smiled in a completely calm and thoroughly happy way and said "I
used to have a yarn store. Those were happy days." Because of busy lives the topic
never was brought up again. Through many tears, yet encouraged by what her friend
had said, the long-time dream for Sherri became a reality.
Sherri was born and raised in Portland, but having horses and friends in Sandy. Sherri
opened Designer Yarn in the quaint town of Sandy and continued her love of colors,
textures, and designs in March, 2004.
Designer Yarn is located in Sandy, Oregon along the beautiful scenic route of Highway
26 between Portland and Mt. Hood, a favorite year round recreation area. Designer
Yarn provides knitting/crochet supplies for many customers from surrounding areas
