rachel reese







Rachel is a beautiful knitter!  She  has designed several patterns for the store.  Rachel, as with many of us, collects yarn in her spare time!   She artfully disguises it as furniture by boxing it and hiding it with beautiful table covers. She is so good at it that Marie hides her fleeces and spinning wheels at Rachel’s house as well ! Rachel added spinning to her talents a few years ago.  She has become quite skilled and is now selling her yarns at Asheville NC Homecrafts in the yarn room! Rachel is an incredible dyer with an extensive collection of vivid colors at her hand as she works.  Her mohair is always the most shiny and her locks perfectly shaped.  When real life infringes on her creative time, Rachel is the assistant director of nursing at Elderberry Nursing Home,  She is the wife of Robert and the mother of Beatrice.  we are excited to have Rachel working with us here at the store…she fits right in!

Sandy StantonSandy works with us at Asheville NC Homecrafts.  She is as comfortable with a pair of knitting needles as a crochet hook. Her Mama taught her to crochet when she was a little girl. After Sandy learned to knit she taught her Mama. She creates a lot of animal hats for the store, usually without a pattern. Sandy’s felt hats are among our top sellers.  Sandy is married to Greg Stanton. She is a kindergarten assistant at Emma Elementary School and a mother of three children, grandmother of one and another making an appearance in the next month!
