|Em and Robynne - the lovely ladies at the end of the phone & the emails|
Em is our 'Bookend' lady, working in the shop on Mondays & Fridays & for another part of our parent company the rest of the week. An Aussie implant, we have now totally 'kiwi-fied' Em & she now know more about yarn than she ever thought possible - pretty impressive considering she isn't a knitter! When Em isn't with us, she's kept extremely busy with two very active sporty children, we often joke that we come to work to take a break!
Robynne has been the linchpin of the Skeinz store for almost 3 years now & she is the smiling calm influence that we all love so much here. If you've dealt with Robynne you'll know she has a ferocious knowledge around yarn craft & she has knitted many of the beautiful samples featured in the store. Robynne gave up teaching to indulge her passion for yarn craft & when she's not with us she's indulging in her two delicious grandchildren who live locally or taking time off to visit those who live farther away.
For the next team profile, I will shed light on the inner workings of what Peter & I get up to behind closed doors.....
