Yarn Shop Featured in 360 West Magazine

Feb 17, 2019

The February issue of Fort Worth’s 360 West Magazine features a heart made of yarn on its cover – a perfect visual for their story on Julie Hatch-Fairley’s labor of love: JuJu Knits.

Julie’s yarn shop is currently under construction in a 1916 fixer-upper in the Fairmount neighborhood. In the meantime, she’s holding pop-up classes and knitting nights throughout the Near Southside.

Julie also shared the story of her dream of opening a yarn shop at the Near Southside Shindig in May 2018. While construction continues on her brick and mortar space, Julie’s mobile yarn shop – a little pink camper trailer named Purl – is scheduled to make its debut at Open Streets on April 7.
