About Designer Yarn
@ great prices
Sherri Anderson, has been an avid knitter for over 20 years.
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
