MAC met when Annie was managing a yarn store. Marilynn worked there, and Correna was a loyal customer. Like all hardcore knitters, MAC dreamed of owning their own LYS. In early 2011, they attended the closeout sale of a NW stitching store and realised that this was the “fish or cut bait” moment.
After 3 coffees, egg sandwiches, and a business plan on a napkin, they were ready to go! By May, The Loop was a reality and open for business. “Loopies,” Rose, Amber, Clair, and Ben were added, and formed a fibre “Dream Team.” MAC is looking forward to chapters 2 to infinity; the part that revolves around you, our valued customer.
We love our staples like Jamieson + Smith, DROPS, Universal, Gielsk, Manos del Uruguay, Malabrigo, West Yorkshire Spinners, Rowan, and Kauni, as well as being the Southern Alberta reseller for Rohrspatz & Wollmeise. We also love our indie dyers like SweetGeorgia, Julie Asselin, Two Birds Knitting Co., Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Works, Falling Forward Dyeworks, Heart West Haven. We have our own hand dyed Loop House yarn, and punch needles from The Oxford Company! Plus Ashford spinning wheels and weaving looms, as well as Ashford supplies for spinning and weaving!
