One of the booths that was catching a lot of attention was this rainbow of color and texture just as you entered the building. Nerd Girl Yarns is based just outside of Kansas City, though they get their fibers from all over the world. Their booth at the Kansas City Maker Faire was pretty packed most of the time as people were drawn to the bright colors and the hacked together spinning wheel for yarn making.

I get ridiculously excited seeing people make things. I just want to revel in the creativity of the masses! My favorite thing in the world is sharing the hard work of a maker.

I’d always love to hear about what you’re making, so send me an email any time at [email protected]

    Can your yarns be ordered via e-mail? In other words, do you have a web site we can order from?? Thanks!

    LOVE Nerd Girl Yarns! Gorgeous dyed to order yarn for knitting/crochet/weaving, and honestly, the best quality dyed fiber for spinning I’ve ever used! And, yes, to the other poster, go to and check it out!
