Heather Swan has dreamed of owning her own business since she was a teenager. She still possesses journals where she sketched out ideas for her first restaurant. She has worked since she was 11 years old babysitting. Yet her focus in her adult life was always bringing alive other people’s dreams.
In 2021, Heather’s husband was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and her world literally flipped upside-down. At the time she was running the operations teams for a company in Chesterfield. She had to step back and take on a support role because of her husband’s dire condition. Fortunately, he survived and is working today to regain his health.
In the summer of 2021 Heather realized that she was spending all of her time building someone else’s dream and very little time building her own.
After assessing all the factors, she resigned her position and started working on opening a local yarn shop and launching the Midwest Fiber Festival. Amidst the thrill of opening her own yarn store, Heather’s greatest excitement is introducing the fiber arts to those who have never experienced them. She will be hosting events for Girls’ Nights Out and Date Nights, as well as kids’ classes. She will also be working with local homeschool, scout, and church youth groups. If this sounds fun to you, let Heather know!
We hope to see you at the shop when it opens this Fall!
