Born out of a need to create and a desire to nurture wellness in others, Suzi and Jeff Quillen opened Perfectly Knotty at the beginning of 2014 in their hometown of Granite Falls, WA; the whimsical, cozy and nurturing yarn shop relocated to Historic Downtown Arlington WA at the beginning of 2016.
With a contagious smile and a gentle attitude, Suzi generously shares her lifelong love of crochet and knitting.
In no time she will have you inspired to create something wonderful for yourself or a loved one.
Learning from her Grandma at an early age, Suzi quickly developed her stitching talents; by the time she was in her twenties she was designing patterns as fine as lace. Reverse engineering damaged heirloom crochet lace became an early specialty.
Toting a hammer and nails from a very young age, Jeff learned from his Grandfather the art of fine woodworking.
As a master craftsman, bringing out the natural beauty of wood is a passion that comes very naturally to Jeff; he lovingly and gently repairs antique furniture, sometimes recreating destroyed pieces out of antique wood scraps that he collects. Maintaining the authenticity of each piece is a focus of preserving its longevity.
Jeff began refurbishing antique lamps and creating entirely new furniture pieces from reclaimed materials in his creative activities, providing unique furniture items that will complete the look in your home.
Breathe in the beauty of friendship, coupled with encouragement and you will soon be feeling creative and accomplished!
