fibre space is a community of makers – hand knitters, crocheters, weavings, and spinners. We are committed to providing you with high quality, natural, and unique materials. We have a carefully curated selection of yarn and fibre from U.S. sources, unique international makers, hard to find hand dyers, and more. Our priority is to support the small and independent operations in our industry, particularly those that are woman owned. You will find a wide selection of yarns ranging from small boutique brands to wonderful “workhorse” yarns – all organized by gauge within the store. Stop in and enjoy our selection of classes, designer workshops, yarn tastings, movie nights, and more. Let the helpful staff at fibre space™ get you started on your next handmade creation!
About the Owner
Danielle, owner of the fibre space shop, has been knitting since the age of six or so, when she completed her first project – a Cabbage Patch doll scarf.
A Pittsburgh native with a degree in international development, she moved to the D.C. area to find a job and quickly established a career in non profit management and fundraising. For extra cash, she decided to turn her hobby into a job and taught knitting classes in the evening at area shops.
With a heavy dose of sarcasm and a tough love style of teaching, Danielle quickly developed a following of students – busy D.C. professionals looking for a creative outlet.
In October 2006, she struck out on her own with Knit-a-Gogo, Inc. – offering knitting classes and events all over the D.C. metro area. Before she knew it, Knit-a-Gogo had grown out of control and Danielle moved to the next natural step – a full service yarn shop. In July 2009 fibre space was born and has been rockin’ ever since. When she isn’t behind the scenes with a mocha in hand, Danielle is hanging with her daughter or lobbying for small business needs at City Hall.
